The police in Anambra State has arrested a woman, Azotani Toochukwu and her friend, Ogochukwu Nwankwo, who made a video of a woman allegedly caught with her (Toochukwu) husband in their house.
The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Haruna Mohammed, who stated this in a press statement, said the women made nude videos of the victim and tried to blackmail her to stop the release of the video.
A viral video tape, which is currently circulating on the internet, shows a light-skinned woman; Ogochukwu Nwankwo, molesting a naked woman, whose name was given as Ogochukwu Okafor, after she was caught in the house of her lover, Mr Ifeanyi Azota.
Okafor, who reported the attempt to blackmail her with the nude videos, said she was invited to the house by her Facebook friend; Ifeanyi, when his wife and another woman suddenly showed up and accused her of sleeping with the man in their matrimonial home.
The release by Mohammed read; “On the 21/3/2019 at about 2:40pm, one Okafor Ogochukwu ‘F’ of Osile Village Ogidi reported at Central Police Station Awka that on 19/03/2019 at about 11:36am, she was invited by her male facebook friend one Ifeanyi Azota ‘m’ to his house at Ezimezi village in Amawbia.
“All of a Sudden a woman who claimed to be his wife namely Azotani Toochukwu ‘f’ suddenly appeared into the house with her friend one Ogochukwu Nwankwo ‘F’ and Locked her inside the bathroom for almost four hours and left.
“The women later came back with two big canes and opened the bathroom.
“However, while the Suspect’s friend one Ogochukwu Nwankwo stripped her naked and flogged her severally, the principal suspect was busy videotaping the incident and thereafter pushed her out from the compound naked.”
Haruna said the complainant further alleged that the principal suspect, Azotani Toochuckwu, called her on phone the following day and demanded for the sum of N60,000 to stop her from posting her nude video on the internet.
