"When I asked for the identity of the sender, they told me not to worry and that I should cooperate with them and the matter will be over. "

He told the court that he was asked to pay the sum of N15million or else the nude video will be posted on social media. 

"I Pleaded that I will pay the sum of N1million and pleaded that I needed to sell a property to raise a million naira. They sent me another message that I should pay the sum of N5 million.

They threatened not to accept anything less.
