VeryDarkMan lands in trouble, arrested by Police again



The Nigeria Police Force has arrested popular social media critic, Martins Vincent Otse, widely known as VeryDarkMan days following his release from prison.

VeryDarkMan was reportedly arrested on the orders of the Police Commissioner of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Command, Igwe.

In a post via X on Sunday, activist lawyer Deji Adeyanju stated that VeryDarkMan was arrested for allegedly exposing a Nigerian who purportedly defrauded someone abroad.

According to Adeyanju, the controversial social media influencer was arrested on allegations of defamation.

“Our client, @thatverydarkman has just been arrested by the police on the instruction of CP Igwe for exposing someone who allegedly duped a Nigerian abroad.

“Instead of the police to arrest the person alleged to have duped someone, they arrested VDM on allegation of defamation,” he stated.


It would be recalled that the critic spent weeks in prison some weeks ago following allegations of cyberbullying.
