Federal High Court Remands Social Critic VeryDarkMan in Police Custody | #NwokeukwuMascot



Abuja, Nigeria – A Federal High Court in Abuja has remanded Martins Vincent Otse, widely known as VeryDarkMan, in police custody following the Nigeria Police Force's opposition to his bail application. 

VeryDarkMan, a prominent social critic and vlogger, faces five counts of cyberstalking. During the court session presided over by Justice Mobolaji Olajuwon, the police prosecuting team requested additional time to respond to the bail application, which the court granted. The case has been adjourned to next Wednesday, May 29, 2024.

The prosecution sought to have VeryDarkMan remanded in prison custody. However, his defense lawyers successfully argued for his detention at the National Cybercrime Centre, a request the court approved.

In recent developments, VeryDarkMan has been vocal in his criticism of the Nigerian police, particularly for their inaction against Idris Okuneye, known as Bobrisky, a controversial cross-dresser. VeryDarkMan condemned Bobrisky's recognition as the Best Dressed Female at a Nollywood event in his recent videos.

Responding to these criticisms, the Nigeria Police Force stated that there was no legal basis for arresting Bobrisky, as cross-dressing is not prohibited by Nigerian law, and there was no evidence of same-sex relations.

The court's decision to remand VeryDarkMan underscores the ongoing legal and social debates surrounding cyber activities and personal freedoms in Nigeria. The next hearing promises to shed more light on the charges and the broader implications for digital expression in the country.
