AFederal High Court in Abuja has granted bail to social media influencer and blogger, Martins Vincent Otse, popularly known as Verydarkman.

 

The blogger was subsequently released from police custody after satisfying his bail condition on Monday. However, the details of the bail condition were still sketchy at the time of filing this report.

 

On Wednesday, May 22, SaharaReporters reported that it had obtained the police charge sheets saying VeryDarkMan was arraigned on five counts bordering on cyberstalking.

The police prosecuting team told Justice Mobolaji Olajuwon of the Federal High Court that they needed more time to respond to the application and they were subsequently obliged by the court.

 

The police prosecution moved to have the blogger remanded in prison but his lawyers made an application for him to be kept in police custody.

 

The court granted their request and he was subsequently taken to the National Cybercrime Centre.

 

Some of the counts read, “That you Martins Vincent Otse (A.K.A. VERYDARKBLACKMAN) ‘M’, 29 YRS of Supreme Court Estate Karu, Abuja on or about 29th October, 2023, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court knowingly and intentionally posted videos, by means of computer system on your Instagram handles ‘verydarkblackman’, which video contained information that is grossly offensive, pornographic or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character wherein you stated that one Iyabo Ojo is having indecent sexual relationship with her daughter knowing or having reasons to believe that the information in the video you posted on your Instagram handle is false and you thereby committed the offence of Cyberstalking contrary to and punishable under section 24 (1)(a) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) ACT, 2015.

 

“That you Martins Vincent Otse (A.K.A. VERYDARKBLACKMAN) ‘M’, 29 YRS of Supreme Court Estate Karu, Abuja on or about 19th March, 2024, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court knowingly and intentionally posted videos, by means of computer system on your Instagram handles ‘verydarkblackman’ containing information you know or had reasons to believe to be false, wherein you stated that Bobrisky is pimping young boys for Senators and Senior Police Officers to sleep with, which statement you made for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience, danger, insult, injury.”

 

Recently, VeryDarkMan condemned the Nigerian police for not arresting controversial cross-dresser Idris Okuneye, popularly known as Bobrisky.

 

VeryDarkMan in recent videos condemned the award of Best Dressed Female to the cross-dresser at a Nollywood event.

 

He accused some police chiefs of sleeping with the cross-dresser hence their failure to arrest him.

 

However, the Nigeria Police Force said at that time that it could not arrest Bobrisky because there was no law against cross-dressing in the country and that there was no proof that he was engaging in same-sex relations.

 

In April, the police said their case against VeryDarkMan was not yet over.

 

The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said this while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme, adding that the delayed release of the controversial social media influencer from detention was based on a court order.

 

SaharaReporters had reported that VeryDarkMan was arrested by the police over claims that they had received a series of petitions against his conduct online.
