A Magistrate Court, sitting at Umundugba, Isu local government area of Imo State convicted Nwoke for “defamation of character”.

The Prosecutor, Mr. Okereke Chikodi, said that soon after getting a formal complaint from Chief Willie Amadi, the Commissioner of Police set up a crack team of detectives to go after the people behind the alleged crime, leading to the arrest of Peter Nwoke who confessed to manipulating and leaking the video.

When the matter was called up in court Tuesday, January 19, 2021, and the charge read out to the accused person, he pleaded guilty to the charge.

The accused, in his confessional statement at the police station, which he repeated in court, said he picked a mobile phone at Owerri and left for his place in Isu local government area of the state.

Nwoke also said that a day after picking the phone and powered it, he got a call from a man who introduced himself as Barr. Willie Amadi, saying that he was the owner of the phone he was holding.

His words: “I asked him to come to Umuogbor Isuobishi, Isunjaba in Isu LGA to collect the phone and he came, collected and gave me N40, 000. Before then, I had transferred some information from his phone to mine, which included pictures he took in a swimming pool.

“When he left, greed and the devil came into me. I thought I should make more money from him. Seeing his car and realizing that he is a big man, I decided to superimpose one of his pictures on a sex background to force him to negotiate settlement with me. When I called him severally, and he did not pick my calls, I became angry and decided to send the pictures out through the internet.

“Three days after, I was at a joint with some people, when the police arrested me. I confessed to the act at the police station because I did not know that what I did will bring such a big problem to me. I begged him to forgive me and promised not to do such thing again.”

Magistrate C. P. Nnoromele found the accused guilty of defamation under Section 373 of Criminal Code, Cap C38 Laws of the Federation 2004 as applicable in Imo state.

The accused was therefore convicted and sentenced to one year imprisonment, which the presiding Magistrate said, “would to serve as a deterrent to other young people, who may be threading on such dastardly path”.
