Yawa don gas o.
But my matter is not a police matter.
This one is a love matter that is between man and woman, maybe I should say between boyfriend and girlfriend.
So, I don’t know what concerns police in this matter. So long as I did not go to anybody’s house and ‘by forced’ them to give me the laptops and phones that I have, I did not use gun to collect the money in my account, I did not even forge anybody’s signature, true to God, all the money in my account is my own
They gave me, the girls I met on Facebook. They gave me by themselves because they love me, how is this matter a police matter, biko help me judge the case!
This is discrimination against my gender because if I had been the one giving the money and everything, police would not have come for the girls and put them in handcuffs like they have done to me and this is the truth so help me God!
Nne, see what happened.
These small, small girls that are tired of their parents’ wahala full ground everywhere. They are tired of their lives, they come to Facebook and say that they are looking for a man that can do this ‘n that. A man that can satisfy them, they are looking for love, they will send you their nude photos in messenger, they will send you anything you ask them to send. Did anybody ‘by force’ them? No!
I know their type, I will go to Facebook and find them, just tap them for messenger, small. They will answer quick, quick. Tell them you admire them and will like to know them better, that they are beautiful and you think you are falling in love with them, kpam! They will fall yakata.
Is that one now a crime? To see fine girls on Facebook and tell them you want to become their lover? What crime is in that?
That’s how it happens; anytime I see any fine girl I like, I will send them friend request and messenger chat; some will answer you and some will not. If they answer, I have jammed luck, if not, I try my luck elsewhere. Is that a crime, biko, tell me? Except in this our Nigeria!
I jammed luck, I was toasting three girls and they agreed. Even that one too is not a crime; it’s a game. We will talk about many things and what I always see is that, these girls are looking for love and I have plenty of it to give! But I also know some of them are lying to me, they are deceiving me by telling me they love me too when I send them my own nude photo as well…yes, I send them my own something too…that is how it is done.
Some of them will agree to meet you, some will not. When you meet with them, you take them out, you buy things for them to show them love.
Sometimes, we also discuss, not every time you will be doing something. Like whenever I need anything, I will ask them, I need so and so amount to buy something, they will say they don’t have but they can get it for me. Is it not because of the love they have for me that will make them get the money for me? Did I ask anyone of them to go and steal money from their parents or their guardians to send to me? So long as I did not put a gun in anybody’s head to ‘by force’ them, what is my crime? Why am I being treated like a criminal because of love?
As I told you before, as I am deceiving them, they are also deceiving me; so cunning man die, cunning man bury am, that is the fact of life!
And let me say this one, so you understand. When these girls appear to you in real life, it is another thing you see from the photo they have been posting to you on Facebook, o… different thing entirely, so who is deceiving who here, ehn?
Ok, sometimes I meet with these girls at some places but I never take them to my house; we sometimes book hotel for short-time and when we finish, I escort them to bus stop, they too they don’t want me to know where they live, so you see, everybody is happy.
Do you think I deceive myself that these girls love me? If they find a fine looking bobo with plenty of wads, they would leave me like hot akara!
Oh you want to know how did I landed here?
Nne see me wahala, o!
I told one of them, that is Lucia, that I needed a laptop to use because the one I had crashed. I was just hoping to borrow it and return. Yes. I don’t know how she got the laptop. I did not ask. I collected it and was using. Only for me to be arrested by police when I invited the girl for another short time. I didn’t know her parents had gone to report to police that I was 429ing her to collect money and the laptop she gave me was her father’s own! Did I steal it? Did I put a gun to her head?
It was when police now checked my Facebook account they saw all the chats, of how they send me money and all of that, they said I was a scammmer! Haba do i look like Invctus Obi?
This my matter is a love matter, if Lucia had complained, I would have given her back her father’s laptop. Now, police is saying that I was scamming girls, how? I am looking for love; they are also looking for love. They give me money, I also give them love.
My sister you don’t know the energy that goes into having sex with these small, small girls? You can never satisfy them, I swear! In relationships, people deceive themselves a lot, so what did I do wrong, biko?
