The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed the arrest of one Chude Nnamdi, a staunch supporter of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
The LP supporter with Twitter handle @chude__, was arrested in Onitsha, Anambra on Saturday, March 18, 2023.
According to reports, Chude is currently being investigated by the Nigeria Police Force National Cyber Crime Centre, Abuja, for cyber-stalking, over a petition about his activities on social media which contravenes the provision of Section 24 of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act, 2015 and other criminal laws.
Although the NPF did not reveal the identity of the petitioner, several social media users had alleged that the Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, was not unconnected with his arrest.
The force’s Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi made this known via a series of tweets on Wednesday.
“The Nigeria Police hereby confirms that one Mr. Chude Franklin Nnamdi with Twitter handle ‘
@chude__’ was arrested in Onitsha, Anambra State on the 18th of March, 2023, and he is being investigated by the Nigeria Police Force National Cyber Crime Centre (NPF-NCCC) Abuja, for cyberstalking, pursuant to a complaint received via a petition, about his activities on social media which contravene the provision of Section 24 of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act, 2015 and other criminal laws.
“Furthermore, a prima facie case has been established against him while the case file has been forwarded to the Force Legal Department for further action.
“The Nigeria Police Force, therefore, urges members of the public to familiarise themselves with provisions of the law and be aware of the penalties for violating them most especially cybercrime laws with the new trends in the digital media space,” the tweet read.
