Broadcaster, Yemi Sonde alleges being blackmailed with nude video
Chairman of Yemi Sonde Media Group and owner of popular radio station YES FM, Yemi Sonde, has alleged being blackmailed with his nude video.
Yemi said in a statement released on Tuesday, December 13, that the blackmailer, who claimed to be from Cote d’Ivoire, sent him a video of him alone in his bedroom and repeatedly demanded money ranging from N500,000 to N1,500,000 to keep it off social media.
The radio station owner also revealed that the blackmailer sent the video to some of his friends, asking them to persuade him to send them money or face being embarrassed by its release.
Yemi, on the other hand, stated that he told the blackmailer to carry out his threat because he would not part with his hard-earned money to any blackmailer.
The statement read;
I am issuing this release to let Nigerians know that some powerful individuals who are bent on destroying me have orchestrated this blackmail. I don’t know what I did to necessitate this but I know that they will fail.
I suspect some high net-worth individuals in society who got the blackmailer to go after me, having hitherto sworn to take me down.
