Just in: VeryDarkMan Released From Police Custody After 3weeks In Detention

Controversial social media influencer and blogger, Martins Vincent Otse, also known as Verydarkman has been released from police custody.

A Federal High Court in Abuja has granted bail to Martin Otse, AKA VeryDarkMan, who was accused of cyberbullying.

The blogger was said to be released after satisfying his bail condition on Monday.

He was set free from police custody upon meeting the bail terms on Monday.

However, specific bail conditions are still not public as of now.

Otse faced charges related to cyberstalking and was arraigned at the Federal High Court in Abuja on May 22.

The Nigerian police charged the defendant for posting offensive videos on his Instagram and making indecent allegations against Iyabo Ojo and Tonto Dikeh.

One of the charges alleged that Otse posted videos on his Instagram handle containing information that was “grossly offensive, pornographic or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character”.

In another charge, the defendant was said to have alleged that Iyabo Ojo was having an indecent sexual relationship with her daughter.

Police further claimed that the defendant alleged that Tonto Dikeh was the person behind the gossip blog Gistlover.

The social media critic, however, denied all charges brought against him.

The prosecution requested his remand in prison, but his legal team requested he remain in police custody.

The court approved their request, leading to his transfer to the National Cybercrime Centre.

Recall that VeryDarkMan was initially arrested on March 22 but later released on March 31.

His lawyer disclosed that the arrest was based on complaints from Tonto Dikeh, Iyabo Ojo and Samklef.
