Veteran actor, Ralph Niyi, has raised alarm that he’s being blackmailed by a yet-to-be identified person who is threatening to release his nude video online.
In a video shared on Instagram, the actor cried out, sharing his WhatsApp conversation with the blackmailer, who was asking him to pay a sum of 800K for the video not to be released online.
According to the actor, the blackmailer had been threatening to release his nudes if he did not grant his request.
The 50-year-old disclosed that he told the blackmailer to go on with his threat, noting that he isn’t one to give in to blackmail.
“It is with a heavy heart that I come to you to tell you that I have a blackmailer on my tail, who is claiming to have a nude video of me. And for three days now, he has been threatening to go online if I don’t give him something.
“I am not one that will give in to blackmail. I have told him to go ahead. I have already spoken to a couple of friends and I want to thank them for giving me words of encouragement. My wife, and my family, I already told them when this happened. So please I just want to let you know.
“It is a perilous time out there. People are doing anything just to get money. In my line of work, anything can happen. I make videos. If by omission or commission, happen to get my nude, and then you are now saying you want money with it, I don’t think it will happen with me.”
