He advised the citizenry to cover their faces or any other identification marks when sharing such pictures with other individuals.
The police officer also warned Nigerians that videos can also be recorded and screenshot.
According to the Lagos Police command Spokesperson, he has lost count of victims making reports about people blackmailing them with their nudes.
He therefore, urged Nigerians not to trust anyone and take adequate precautions.
According to him, “If you must send nudes, at least do one-view or cover your face or any other identification mark. And do not forget that video calls can be screen shot/recorded. For others, it is a clandestine recording of their intimate moments, of course without consent.
“I have honestly lost count of people, sometimes notable ones, approaching me about someone somewhere blackmailing and extorting them with their nudes.
“Trust no one. Take adequate precautions. Trust your instincts too. And do not forget to reach incb.npf.gov.ng in the unfortunate event you fall victim of this.”
Alleged N306.1m Theft: Court Grants Paul-Kayode Joash N10m Bail
Rev Paul-Kayode Joash of Joash Ministries has been granted the bail of N10m over the alleged N306.1m theft leveled against him.
Joash Ministries is an organisation dedicated to helping individuals realize their fullest potential.
The organisation also described the report on Tribune Online published on October 30th, 2023 as false, insisting that “there is no evidence to suggest that any money was obtained through theft, false pretense or any other illegal means”.
Joash Ministries noted that it was committed to clearing Rev Paul-Kayode Joash of all baseless charges maliciously brought against him, as well as addressing the needs of all it’s candidates.
Joash revealed that one of their core services is helping individuals secure employment as health care assistant and carer in the UK.
The organisation explained that if there was unforeseen delay in processing the applications of outstanding candidates as originally planned, it made a commitment to refund.
The organisation also revealed its intentions to collaborate with Agodi Prison in advocating justice for those unjustly remanded.
“We hereby address the matter highlighted in the Tribune online on October 30th, 2023, concerning the alleged theft of N306.1 million. We vehemently deny these false allegations leveled against Rev Paul-Kayode Joash and his company. There is no evidence to suggest that any money was obtained through theft, false pretense, or any other illegal means.
One of our core services involves assisting individuals in securing employment as Health Care Assistants and Carers in the United Kingdom. While numerous candidates have successfully found work in the UK from Nigeria, we encountered delays with a care home and experienced changes in government regulations. Unfortunately, this resulted in an unforeseen delay in processing the applications of outstanding candidates as originally planned”, the organisation stated.
Joash Ministries said “In light of the circumstances, we made a commitment to refund the agency and service fees charged. We have initiated the refund process, albeit at a slower pace than anticipated due to pending refunds from our supplying partners.
Naturally, candidates may feel aggrieved and place pressure on their agents, leading to the involvement of the police and the levying of false allegations against Rev Paul-Kayode Joash”.
According to them, “We are fully committed to clearing Rev Paul-Kayode Joash of all baseless charges maliciously brought against him, as well as addressing the needs of our current candidates. This includes providing refunds to candidates requesting them and, most importantly, concluding the process of securing care jobs for our current candidates within the next few weeks.
We firmly believe that this is a transformative phase in which positive outcomes can arise from adversity. As a result of this case, we have taken steps to secure the bail release of 30 inmates at Agodi Prison and have also covered the WAEC/NECO examination fees for 15 inmates. We intend to collaborate with Agodi Prison in advocating for justice for those unjustly remanded”.
Optima Cancer Care Medical Director Bags Life Imprisonment
The Lagos State Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence sitting in Ikeja on Tuesday sentenced the Medical Director of Optimal Cancer Care Foundation, Doctor Olufemi Olaleye, to life imprisonment for the defilement of his wife’s niece.
Olaleye was arraigned on two counts which bordered on defilement and sexual assault by penetration of his wife’s niece, preferred against him by the Lagos State Government.
Justice Rahman Oshodi sentenced him after he found him guilty of the offence of defilement and sexual penetration of a 15-year-old girl.

Olaleye was accused of unlawfully having sexual intercourse with his wife’s 15-year-old niece. He was also accused of sexually assaulting the teenager by penetrating her mouth with his penis.
During the trial, the convict’s wife, Aderemi Olaleye, told the court that her husband had been sexually abusing her niece during her stay with them.
She also testified that the convict first introduced pornography and oral sex to the victim, and he released sperm into her mouth, stating that it started from March 2020 to July 2021.
The witness narrated to Justice Oshodi that the girl confessed to a relative and their driver that the doctor had been sleeping with her and threatened to kill her and the witness if she told anyone.
The mother of two, who is the complainant, said on oath, “My lord, on November 27, 2021, my second cousin told my aunty, who is my mother’s sister, that since March 2020, Femi has been sexually abusing her and introduced her to pornography; from there, he graduated to oral sex with her, and that he does this in different places in the home where there are no cameras.”
