This is another case of an online date gone awry.

The duo had met on an online dating platform, Badoo, and after establishing a mutual friendship, he invited her to his house, raped and videotape her.

Since then, 29-year-old Samuel always threatened to post the clip on the social media whenever he demanded to have sex with her and she refused.

The story started in March 2017, when the 26-year-old woman visited Samuel having being online friends for a while.

After entertaining her, he reportedly made love advances to her, which she allegedly rejected and this led to the execution of a damaging plot by the man who is a Customs officer.

Police source said, “The suspect is a Customs officer. He and the victim met on Badoo and he asked her to visit him. She honoured the invitation, unknown to her that he had a hidden agenda.

“He shut her inside and went out. The woman said she called for help to no avail. He returned home seven hours after and met her semi-conscious. Probably, he had put sedatives into a drink he used to entertain her.

“He removed her clothes, raped her and videoed her nakedness. Thereafter, whenever he called her to come to his house and she refused, he would threaten to put the video on the social media and out of fear, she would yield to his request.

“At a point, she declined an invitation to his house and dared him. He sent the video to her relative to show that he meant his threat. The relative and the victim later reported the case to the police, leading to his arrest.”

Samuel was arrested by the Lagos State Police Command on Sunday and he has been transferred to the Sexual and Domestic Violence Unit of the command headquarters in Ikeja for further investigation.

The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, confirmed the incident.
