In today’s episode of What A Major Wawu, they say they have caught the founder of the notorious NaijaGistLive.com – and they caught him for, predictably, blackmail.
They say his social media identity is Baudex, he is 23, and that he tried to do remote control with Femi Otedola and his wife. Which is apparently where an unstoppable object met an immovable one.
From what they said, below are excerpts:
Email correspondence between him and his accomplice revealed that he was mainly responsible for upgrades on the site, to prevent it from being shut down by hackers. They conversed with one another about extorting their victims, revealing that Paypal and other means are used to receive whatever amount of cash they demand.
They also had conversations about receiving various payments, which victim had paid or not, and price plans for any removal. Huge sums of money have been paid by Nigerians to take down comments!
A particular conversation was highlighted, in which Oyebode and his accomplice spoke about one of the female victims, describing her in unpleasant terms and agreeing to put up a post about her. Incriminating voice notes were also found on his phone.
Also, Oyebode’s girlfriend was in contact with his partner in crime through his account on Instagram after his arrest. Investigators initially had access to the account where chats between Oyebode’s girlfriend and 9jagistlive were found, in which she revealed she just found out he had been arrested and wanted to know the next step. Suspecting that something was amiss, the password was quickly changed but the damage had already been done.The police is now out to arrest his girlfriend.
Our hand is not there o, but we sha remember saying this was an unsustainable business model, as far as we could see.
