The nefarious use of social media once again came to the fore when a Senior Inspector in the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Mr Bayo Onifade, of the Oyo State Command, was arrested by the police for posting a nude picture of his mistress on Facebook after their relationship turned sour.
Information Nigeria learnt that Onifade and the married woman began their secret love affair in December last year in Saki, a major town in the northern part of Oyo State and while the relationship lasted, Onifade was said to have taken his lover to a location in the town where he took nude photographs of his lover.
However, following a decision by the 27-year old mother of two to end the unholy relationship in March, Onifade allegedly decided to post the nude photo on Facebook after his pleas with her for the affair to continue fell on deaf ears.
Facebook users close to the woman’s husband were said to have seen the photo and drawn his attention to it; a development that made him kick his wife out of their matrimonial home.
Onifade, 32, has since been arrested by police for defamation of character and indecent assault of the woman.
The incident was confirmed by the state NSCDC Public Relations Officer (PRO) , Mr Olusegun Oluwole, who said that Onifade has been suspended pending resolution of the case.
