The police yesterday arraigned Stephanie Otobo, 23, who claimed to have had an affair with Apostle Johnson Suleiman, before a Tinubu Magistrate’s Court, Lagos, over alleged intent to steal, and blackmail.

Otobo is facing a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, blackmail and threat to life preferred against her by the police. She was also charged alongside one Wisdom Godstime.

The prosecutor, M.A. Animashaun, told the court that the defendants and others at large committed the alleged offence on February 14, 2017 at about 10:30 a.m., at Police College, Ikeja, Lagos.

He said that the duo conspired among themselves to steal by demanding for property and an attempt to extort money. Animashaun also said that the defendants with intent to blackmail a man of God, unlawfully demanded the immediate payment of $1million to Otobo by Suleiman, else she would call a press conference and accuse him of committing adultery with her and having illicit relationship with her and thereafter kill him.

The prosecutor further alleged that the defendants, with intent to extort money from Suleiman, accused him of committing adultery with Otobo and that he also promised to marry her.

According to the prosecutor, the offences committed are punishable under sections 411, 301 and 303 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015. However, the defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

Magistrate Kikelomo Bukola-Ayeye in her ruling granted the defendants bail in liberal term and asked them to deposit N100,000 with two sureties in like sum, who must be gainfully employed.

Meanwhile, the magistrate ordered that the defendants should continue with the bail earlier granted them. She, therefore, adjourned the case to April 27, 2017 for the commencement of trial.

Big Brother Naija ‘Pepper Dem’ edition season 4 winner, Mercy Eke has lent her voice to the ongoing #EndSARS protest.

Taking to Instagram on Monday, Eke shared a photo of herself taken at a protest ground.

The reality TV star noted that the leaders in the country have failed citizens and they have also refused to listen to their cries.

Thus, she and other protesters will not stop making their requests known till they are met.

In her words;

It is so sad that our political leaders to whom we have collectively entrusted our socio political and economic welfare in their care have failed us, the same people who thrive in a life of affluence at the expense of the citizenry, have refused to hacken to our cries for emancipation from continued acts of suppression, which has deprived us of socio economic and sustainable welfare, now the youths have come together in solidarity to say we deserve better, this peaceful protest is for all of us, we are not stoping until our demands for a better governance and society are met in truth and not just the usual verbal rhetoric.#endswat #endsars#endpolicebrutality”
