“I’m grateful to God , I’m grateful to Nigerian police,” were words Salawa Abeni uttered as news filtered to town on Sunday that her ‘blackmailer’ has been arrested.

For Waka musician Queen Salawa Abeni, this is an end to her nightmare.

Some weeks ago, a man who claimed to have her nude photos sent a text message to her.

If she thought it was the popular ‘stay safe’ message, then she must be wrong. Whoever sent the message meant more harm than good.

“It was a blackmail text message and I was shocked. The sender, took time to get some old photos of mine and sent them to me. He threatened to post it on the Internet if I don’t cooperate,” she told Kemi Ashefon when she leaked the nude photos herself.
