The Lagos State Police Command has advised Nigerians to desist from sending nudes on social media.
The advice comes on the heels of the prevalence of leak nudes making the rounds on social media in recent times.
However, where ‘netizens’ find it expedient to engage in such acts, Benjamin Hundeyin, the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, on Wednesday advised Nigerians about what to do while sending nude pictures.
In a statement on X, the police PRO said, “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 or 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 out to incb.npf.gov.ng in the unfortunate event you fall victim to this.”
Recently, Nigerian celebrities such as Tiwa Savage, Oxlade, Salawa Abeni, Cross, Esther Rapheal, popularly called Buba Girl, and Moyo Lawal have all been involved in sex tape leak scandals.
