The police on Friday arraigned a woman, Folashade Olalude, before the Ebute-Metta Chief Magistrate Court over alleged cyberbullying and threat to kill a businessman.
The defendant who was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Olwatosin Fowowe-Erusiafe is facing four counts bordering on conspiracy, intent to steal, cyberbullying and threat to kill, preferred against her by the police.
The prosecutor, Mr. Henry Obiazi, told the court that the defendant and others now at large, between 2015 and 2022, conspired among themselves to commit the alleged offences.
Obiazi told the court that the defendant, with an intent to steal, demanded over N5m, on different occasions from one Alhaji Lawal Abdullateef, with threats of injury or publishing his name on the Internet as a fraudster or using bloggers’ websites to defame his character and the reputation of his Nollywood actress wife, Lizzy Anjorin, if the demands were not met.
He also told the court that the defendant had, sometime in October 2023, written a letter to the businessman, threatening to kill him, adding that the defendant equally sent the same threat message to Abdullateef’s phone.
According to the prosecutor, the offences committed contravened Sections 411, 301, and 232 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.
