The Lagos state Special Fraud Unit (SFU) on Monday revealed that one blogger, Babatunde Oyebode was arrested for allegedly attempting to blackmail and swindle high profile businessmen and Nigerians.

Oyebode, whose victims submitted different petitions to the Special Fraud Unit, accused him of fraudulently running a website, naijagistlive.com, which he uses to send threat messages to people, demanding huge sums of money to pull down negative stories about them or delete comments.


Oyebode, popularly known as Baudex on social media, in a video confession to the Police stated that he co-owns the website which he runs with a lady, believed to be based outside Nigeria.

Email correspondence between him and his accomplice showed that they conversed with one another about extorting their victims, revealing that Paypal and other means are used to receive whatever amount of cash they demand.

They also had conversations about receiving various payments, which victim had paid or not, and price plans for any removal.


A particular conversation was highlighted, in which Oyebode and his accomplice spoke about one of the female victims, describing her in unpleasant terms and agreeing to put up a post about her. Incriminating voice notes were also found on his phone.

Oyebode was picked up by the Police during his third attempt to extort a businessman in Lagos.


Report has it that after extorting thousands of dollars from the said business man, he continued to make attempts to blackmail and demand for more, saying that he had more stories to run. This was however how he met his waterloo, as he was arrested while trying to pick up the money paid into his Nigerian account.
