He (name kept secret for security reasons) was picked up by the police today, October 23 and taken to the police station where he has since confessed to his crime.
In a video recorded by the real owner of 44 Pictures, Maestro Shabatam , the criminal says, he asks for up to 20,000 – 50,000 XCFA per his victim as well as nudes.
