Police parade blogger who accused E-Money of sleeping with Junior Pope’s wife

Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money

A blogger identified as Stanley Okoruwa has been paraded at the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly defaming businessman Emeka Okonkwo aka E-Money.

While parading him on Monday, spokesman of the Command Benjamin Hundeyin said Mr Okoruwa would be prosecuted.

Hundeyin said the 24-year-old was arrested at Uromi in Edo State.

“He is going to be prosecuted, because the things he engaged in were criminal in nature. He has allegedly defamed E-Money and he is going to be prosecuted.

“We are not prosecuting the suspect because of the personality involved, but because he has allegedly committed crime. The personality went through the normal channel by reporting the case to the police and we investigated and arrested the suspect.

“If one is defamed and you only talk about it in the social media, you have not reported the case yet to the police, it doesn’t work that way. The best thing to do is report at any police division, area command or police headquarters, we will take it up,” he said.

Okoruwa told journalists that he made up lies about E-Money to draw traffic to his channel.

“I said something regarding a video I saw online about a woman – saying that Sir E-Money is responsible for the things that happened to Nollywood Actor, John Odonwodo, aka Junior Pope’s case.

“I said something like that, I also said that Sir E-Money was also having an affair with Junior Pope’s wife. I have never in my life met E-Money. Everything I made in that video was not true.

“I made the video out of trying to boost my page traffic level, I never knew it will go viral the way it went. I don’t have bad intention to spoil Sir E-Money’s name. I was just making the video, I didn’t know it will go such wide.

“I know the content of the video were wrong of me to have made. I didn’t know the video will escalate to that extent,” he said.

Okoruwa said he was going to take down the video and apologise before the police arrested him.

“Everything I said in that video was false. I am using this medium to say Sir E-Money, I need your forgiveness, I will never in my life do such a mistake again,” the suspect said.
