Gistlover Reacts to Alleged Arrest of Operators by Nigerian Police Force

on

In a dramatic turn of events, the popular microblogging platform Gistlover has vehemently denied any connection to the individuals recently paraded by the Nigerian Police Force in connection with cyber-related offenses. The blog took to its Instagram page to challenge the police’s claims and demanded concrete evidence linking its operators to the arrested individuals.

 

According to a press statement released by the Nigerian Police Force’s spokesperson, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, three individuals – Adebukola Kolapo, Nnedum Micheal Somtomchukwu, and Isaac Akpokighe – were apprehended by the National Cybercrime Center of the Nigeria Police Force. The suspects, all males aged 27, 25, and 30, were accused of alleged conspiracy, cyberstalking, and threats to life.

 

Gistlover, known for its controversial and often sensational posts, refuted the police’s claims through a series of Instagram posts. The blog maintained that those paraded by the police were not affiliated with its operations and called on the authorities to provide concrete evidence to substantiate the alleged connection.

 

The police statement indicated that the arrest was made in response to complaints of cyberstalking, incitement, blackmail, and other related offenses that had reportedly caused public outcry over the years. The Gistlover blog has been a consistent source of gossip, breaking news, and controversial celebrity stories, amassing a significant following on social media.

 

The denial by Gistlover raises questions about the accuracy of the police investigation and the potential impact on freedom of speech in the online space. It underscores the challenges faced by law enforcement agencies in tackling cyber-related crimes while respecting individuals’ rights to free expression.
