The Edo State Chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ,) Comrade Festus Alenkhe has endorsed a well worded petition to the Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Dankwara to request men of the Ant-Kidnapping And Cybercrime Unit of the Edo State Police Command to commence investigation into the criminal activities of one Racheal Eboni Osazee lyonmana based in Canada, who has launched an unprovoked cyber attack on his person.
In the petition forwarded to the Police Commissioner, Comrade Alenkhe stated: “I write to draw the attention of the Edo State Commissioner of Police to a case of false information on kidnapping, cyberbullying and defamation being orchestrated against me by one Racheal Eboni Osazee lyonmana who is based in Canada with telephone Number +19056178041.
“I have never met the Rachael from Adam. I only know the man that got married to her who is my family friend. Information available to me is that the said Rachael Eboni Osazee lyonmana and her husband are aurrently having issues and she resolved to smear anyone who has ever assodated with the estranged husband.
“She went on the internet to bring out my pictures and started castigating me. She engaged in acts derogatory to me. She described me as a kidnapper who is planning to kidnap her and now went further to say such on the YouTube with the name ‘Eboni Godswill’ She has described me to the world as a kidnapper and armed robber. I view her action as blackmail and malicious. She posted my various pictures on the Facebook with slanderous statements.”
Going further, Comrade Alenkhe appealed to Edo State Commissioner of Police to direct men of the Anti-Kidnapping/Cybercrime Unit to extend investigation into the matter.
“I humbly appeal to the commissioner of police to direct the men of the Anti-Kidnapping /Cybercrime Unit of the Edo State Police Command to extend investigation into the matter.
“She should tell the police if we have ever met or interacted. If yes, let her produce the evidence.
“The Police should extend investigation to ascertain if there are some persons planning this fake allegation with her to smear and paint me in bad light to the outside world.
“Lastly, let me quickly say that, my personal investigation revealed that this said Eboni is into the blackmail of innocent Nigerians through the internet. This can be described as cyber stalking.
“I wish to appeal to the commissioner of Police to order the arrest, investigation and prosecution of Rachael Eboni Osazee Iyonmana anytime she comes to Nigeria or extend her arrest to the international police as cybercrime is an international offence.
“This will bring respite to my family, media colleagues and friends who were worried over the various allegations raised by Eboni against me,” he said.
