The National Cybercrime Center of the Nigeria Police Force has made arrest of Gistlover Blog owner and members following a petition lodged by Honorable and Doctor Mrs. Seye Oladejo.
The report was made by Linda Ikeji blog, revealing that these arrests are connected to a case involving Conspiracy, Cyberstalking, and Threats to life.
According to ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson for the police force, the captured suspects—Adebukola Kolapo, Nnedum Micheal Somtomchukwu, and Isaac Akpokighe—are believed to be associated with a syndicate identified as the Gistlover family.
The Gistlover blog, allegedly run by this syndicate, is a microblogging platform notorious for its involvement in cyberstalking, incitement, blackmail, and various illicit activities, causing growing public concern.
The statement issued by the police revealed that upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to their varying levels of involvement in the said conspiracy, aligning with the substantial evidence already on hand.
Adebukola Kolapo, alias Omo oba Gistlover, purportedly played a significant role in creating over 80 percent of the Gistlover pages, effectively providing his digital footprint for the commission of these criminal acts.
Allegedly being on the payroll of the platform and receiving perks like cars and monetary incentives, Adebukola’s responsibilities extended to scouting, editing, captioning contents, and specifically targeting the complainant, Hon. and Dr. Mrs. Oluseyi Oladejo, with cyberstalking posts.
Moreover, Adebukola has been accused of aiding in the laundering of funds acquired through these illegal schemes using various means.
Furthermore, digital forensic analysis led to the discovery of eight Gistlover pages, all reportedly created by Adebukola at the direction of the syndicate’s head, along with wallet addresses linked to the money laundering activities.
