Verydarkman Released From Police Custody

Popular social media influencer and blogger, Martins Vincent Otse, also known as Verydarkman, has been released from police custody after fulfilling his bail conditions on Monday.

Although the specifics of the bail conditions remain unclear, a viral video on the social media platform X shows Verydarkman walking into a crowd of his fans after regaining his freedom.

Previously, the social media critic was arraigned before the Federal High Court in Abuja on five counts of cyberstalking, involving the Nigeria Police and Nollywood actresses Iyabo Ojo and Tonto Dikeh. Verydarkman pleaded not guilty to the charges.

His lawyer, Deji Adeyanju, applied for bail, but the police prosecuting team requested more time to respond to the application. Consequently, Justice Mobolaji Olajuwon adjourned the bail hearing to May 29.

The prosecution sought to have Verydarkman remanded in prison custody; however, his lawyers successfully argued for his remand in police custody instead. The court granted this request, and Verydarkman was subsequently taken to the National Cybercrime Center.
