The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, has highlighted  tips on how nude pictures and videos can be shared without risking being blackmailed.

On his official X account on Wednesday, the Lagos PPRO said he had lost count of the number of times he had received complaints from people regarding someone trying to blackmail and extort them with their nudes.

Hundeyin advised against trusting people with one’s nude photos while stating that if it becomes necessary to share, precautions such as setting the image to view only once and covering one’s face, among others, should be considered.

He wrote, “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.”

Hundeyin also shared a help center in the event of falling victim to blackmail and extortion.

“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.”
