As per ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police force’s spokesperson, the apprehended individuals—Adebukola Kolapo, Nnedum Micheal Somtomchukwu, and Isaac Akpokighe—are allegedly part of a syndicate known as Gistlover family.

This syndicate reportedly operates the Gistlover blog, a microblogging platform infamous for engaging in Cyberstalking, incitement, Blackmail, and other illicit activities that have sparked public concern over time.

The statement issued by the police revealed that upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to their varying levels of involvement in the said conspiracy, aligning with the substantial evidence already on hand.

Adebukola Kolapo, alias Omo oba Gistlover, purportedly played a significant role in creating over 80 percent of the Gistlover pages, effectively providing his digital footprint for the commission of these criminal acts.

Moreover, Adebukola has been accused of aiding in the laundering of funds acquired through these illegal schemes using various means.

Furthermore, digital forensic analysis led to the discovery of eight Gistlover pages, all reportedly created by Adebukola at the direction of the syndicate’s head, along with wallet addresses linked to the money laundering activities.
