The police in Edo state say they have apprehended one Emmanuel Ebeagbor, Aka Dr Walock, over cyberstalking, revenge porn and fraud.

The 20-year-old self acclaimed spiritualist specialised in hoodwinking unsuspecting women to defraud them by posing as someone with power to solve their spiritual and worldly problems.

The suspect was arrested at Uromi, by operatives of the Intelligent Rapid Response Squad during investigations into a case of cyber stalking reported at the station.

The State Commissioner of Police, CP, Funsho Adegboye, confirmed the development.

Adegboye said the suspect requested the sum of N240,000 from a lady to help solve her spiritual problem.

He disclosed that after the victim transferred the money to the suspect’s bank account, he (the suspect) also requested for her nude video.

According to the CP, the suspect asked the woman to record the nude video when she is taking her bath, for spiritual cleansing, and promised to delete it after use.

“She did as he instructed and two weeks later, the suspect demanded for the sum of N400,000, and threatened to post her nude video on the internet,” he said.

The CP said during investigation, the complainant’s nude video and those of other ladies who were the suspect’s victims, were found in his phone.

He said the suspect will soon be charged to court.

In an interview with newsmen, the suspect said he introduced himself to the woman as a spiritualist, and promised to help her.

He said he had lost count of his victims as they are numerous.
