“This is a special press briefing that bothers on offences under cyber crime acts and the Commissioner of Police has ordered for this investigations.

“On the 10th of January, 2023, Mr Festus Alenkhe, the current Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Edo state council, woke up to see a publication on the internet by a lady known as Eboni Rachael Osazee Iyonmana.

” It appears that the lady is based abroad, as we know, the world is a global village, anybody can communicate from one angle of the world to another angle of the world.

“That is why the complainant woke up on that day on that day to see a publication that was against him.

“And the cases we have under what the suspect has done are defamation of character, cyber stalking, cyber bullying, false information and obscene publication.

“The lady blackmailed the complainant Mr Festus Alenkhe that he is a kidnapper, that he goes about wooing ladies and siphoning their accounts of their hard earned money. These are the offences she alleged.

SP Nwanbuzor maintained that the Canada Based lady has the right to make her complain of any harassment, extortions, kidnapping to Inspector General of Police for necessary actions rather than going about maligning him.

“As an educated person as she claims to be, one would have supposed that she goes straight to the police to file a report to the Commissioner of Police or at the level of the Assistant Inspector General of Police, zone 5 headquarters or even the inspector general of Police for necessary investigations.

“She can’t be a judge in her own case by trying to malign the character of this personality that we mentioned.”.

According to the police PRO, a warrant of arrest has been issued by the High court of Benin City, Edo state.

She is therefore wanted by the police for the offense of defamation, cyber stalking, cyber bullying, and false information to the public through social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp networking and YouTube.
