A medical laboratory scientist, Oluroju Shola, has been charged at an Upper Area Court Gwagwalada, Abuja, for exposing his ex-girlfriend’s nude pictures.

The police charged Shola of Kwamba Suleja, Niger State, with criminal breach of trust, intimidation and defamation of character.

The Prosecution Counsel, Abdullahi Tanko, told the court that the complainant, Barnabas Janet of old Kutunku Gwagwalada reported the matter at the Gwagwalada Police Station on April 17.


Tanko said that the defendant and complainant had been in a relationship since 2021, and they both agreed to have some private pictures and videos.

He said that they also agreed not to make the pictures public, adding that when the complainant opted out of the relationship, the defendant threatened to post the private images.
