3 Nigerians charged in US after teenager’s suicide

A 17-year-old American boy, Jordan DeMay, has committed suicide after he was sexually extorted by three Nigerian nationals, Samuel Ogoshi, 22, Samson Ogochi, 20, and Ezekiel Ejehem Robert, 19.

The suspects reportedly bought hacked Instagram accounts which they used to lure teenage and young adult males into sexual chats while posing as women.

One of the profiles used was one with the username “dani.robertts” on Instagram, which chatted with Jordan shortly before his death.

American commits

After initiating a chat with the boys and getting their nudes, they use Google and other online platforms to get more information about their victims, such as their family, location, school, and work.

The suspects then threaten to leak a collage of their explicit images to others, including their family, friends, and classmates, via social media unless they paid money.

According to the grand jury, on March 25, 2022 when DeMay was enticed to send a nude photo of himself, Samuel Ogoshi extorted him using the dani.robertts account.

Below are text messages between the dani.robertts account and DeMay,

They are currently awaiting extradition to the U.S for causing the death of the minor, from Marquette, Michigan, and sexually extorting and attempting to extort over 100 young men and teenage boys in the Western District of Michigan and across the United States.
