The Department of State Services has purportedly arrested Delta State politician Prince Kpokpogri, the ex-boyfriend of Nollywood star Tonto Dikeh.
Prince Kpokpogri is being investigated for alleged blackmail, extortion, and collecting private information under false pretense, according to Instagram blogger Gistlovers and a petition to the commissioner of police.
The blogger compared Prince Kpokpogri to a ticking time bomb, predicting that once he is released from DSS custody, he will be arrested by a slew of people.
The blogger wrote: Kpokpogiri was picked up by DSS a few minutes ago, i’ll update Una as the matter progresses,plenty of offenses dey the guy leg,from blackmailing politicians to threatening ladies with their nu*s,i Dey come,if them release am today,another person go pick am up tomorrow,them plenty wey wan face am now,Kpokpogiri is a time bmb still walking, I arrive in a peaceful manner.
This follows allegations made by Tonto’s colleague Doris Ogala that Prince Kpokpogri blackmailed senators, previous and present governors, the NDDC MD, and others.
We are solicitors to Miss Tonto Dikeh, and it is her order that we write this petition to your respected office, according to the petition filed by Festus Kayamo Chambers. The following is a succinct summary of our discussion.
That in June 2021, a man named Prince Kpokpogri Joseph began courting our client and proposed to marry her. During this period, he would ask our client to his home and, on occasion, he would visit our client’s home. The claimed Joseph Kpokpogri (who our client revealed to be a serial blackmailer) and other motives for wooing our client were unknown to our client.
Our client now has reason and evidence to suspect that Joseph Kpokpogri installed closed-circuit television cameras in private sections of his home and staged those visits in order to blackmail him.
She was taken aback when, in August 2021, the suspect began demanding money and threatening to reveal nude photographs and other information connected to her.
To carry out his requests, the aforementioned Kpokpogri began sending our client messages, documents, and files containing sensitive information and materials to her phone, as well as disclosing them to the public. Our client suspected that part of the material was obtained without her permission, either by wiretapping her phone or through other ways.
Under false pretenses, the said Kpokpogri also got the sum of $8 million from our client. He has, however, paid back the sum of six million dollars, but has refused, failed, or omitted to pay the outstanding sum of two million dollars.
Our client’s Toyota Hilus van, which she purchased in her name, is also in Kpokpogri’s possession, and he has refused to release it despite numerous demands. As a result of the foregoing, we implore you to utilize your good offices to initiate a thorough inquiry into the above facts in order to bring Josph Kpokpogri to justice.
