Adejobi, however, kept mum on the name of the complainant, whose petition led to the arrest of Chude Franklin Nnamdi, a leading voice in Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s campaign. 
     
He said Nnamdi is being investigated by the Nigeria Police Force National Cyber Crime Centre (NPF-NCCC) Abuja, for cyberstalking, pursuant to a complaint received via a petition, about his activities on social media, which contravenes the provision of Section 24 of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act 2015, and other criminal laws.

He said: “Furthermore, a prima facie case has been established against him while the case file has been forwarded to the Force Legal Department for further action. 
 
“The Nigeria Police Force, therefore, urges members of the public to familiarize themselves with provisions of the law and be aware of the penalties for violating them, most especially cybercrime laws with the new trends in the digital media space.”
   
When asked about the identity of the petitioner, Adejobi said: “Ask him, and he will tell you, I only clarified that he is with us, and he’s being investigated for a cybercrime-related offence.”
