Court Convicts Cyberstalker of Nollywood Actress Eniola Badmus, Imposes Three-Year Sentence

TikToker, Okoye Blessing Nwakaego, has been sentenced to three years in prison for cyberstalking Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus on social media.

Nwakaego pleaded guilty to the two-count charge of cyberstalking and showed remorse, leading the judge to offer her an option of a N150,000 fine instead of jail time.

The police accused Nwakaego and another person, Chimabia (currently at large), of conspiring to commit the offense between December 2022 and July 2023 in Lagos.

They transmitted false and offensive communications about Badmus on TikTok, Gossipmill TV, remedy blog, and other social media platforms. The video garnered over three million views. The offense falls under the provisions of Sections 24(1)(b)(2)(a)(c) and 27 of the Cybercrimes Act, 2015.
