Amarah Kennedy, a Lagos-based businessman, has been on the Wanted list of the police for sending nude pictures of some widows he dated to church WhatsApp group and other platforms and social media handles.
It was gathered that the suspect had earlier dated and separately had rounds of sexual intercourse with the widows whom he met when they were searching for love on different social media handles meant for singles and started dating two of them.
However, trouble started cropping up when the relationship became sour, to the extent that he broke up with the widows and started sending their nude pictures to their relations, offices and friends, as a way to punish them.
It was in the course of this thàt he also sent the nude pictures of one of the widows, identified as Kester to her church WhatsApp group, her office and the family members of her late husband.
The suspect was quoted as saying that by the time he would be done with the widow, she would have no option but to commit suicide.
Narrating her ordeal, Kester, who lost her husband about eight years ago in a car crash, said the businessman, after chatting her up, started showering her with monetary gifts. She said after a disagreement, he sent her over 50 of her nude photos which he secretly took after their lovemaking in a hotel. She said the suspect demanded N100,000 from her as a condition to delete the photos. The mother of two noted that after she sent the money and asked if the photos had been deleted, he demanded an additional N40,000 to delete them permanently, which she sent to him.
Kester said despite the payments, the suspect went ahead to circulate the photos on Facebook. The distraught widow said she attempted suicide twice but failed, as some of those who saw the images started questioning her.
On her own part, the second victim, Temi, said the suspect usually had marathon sex with her in hotels while under the influence of drugs, and afterwards gave her N1,000 as transport fares. She said trouble started for her when she called off their relationship after she discovered that he was not serious with her.
She stated that the suspect sent her several of her nude photos and demanded all the money he had spent on her in the relationship. She said she borrowed N15,000, which she sent to him. She said after she appealed to his sister on Facebook for help to talk to him, he started circulating the nude photos. Temi said the businessman regularly called her to demand money.
“I’m sorry I had to cry. It’s been a while I said I would cry over this issue but I feel better now. My in-laws have called me. Thank God. They are the ones now encouraging me, asking if I had reported to the police. They said I even tried, that if it was their brother, they know he would have remarried. That I tried to stay for eight years, they are heaping curses on Kennedy’s head. My in-laws are with me. The shame is for him. They are standing by me. They are even happy I tried to go into a relationship.
“But I entered a relationship with a beast. But they said any support I need to fight this guy, they are there for me. My in-laws are ready to fight this battle for me and they have vowed they will not have rest until Kennedy is arrested. Now, my in-laws know they need to fight for me and they will fight for me,” she said with tears rolling down her cheeks.
In his reaction, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, said the Command have stepped into the case, and promised to get justice for the widows.
When contacted, the suspect said he was aware that police were after him, which prompted him to install an anti-tracker on his phone to ensure they don’t succeed in tracking him, let alone apprehending him.
