Two days ago, a blogger Amanda Chisom accused child actress Regina Daniels of threatening to release a teenager’s nude pictures online for refusing to sleep with a movie manager.
This story went viral but the Regina refused to say anything concerning the accusation and instead posted a picture with the caption: ‘I love threats, do less talk and more action’. A caption that is the major reason people would find it hard to believe her new claims.
Recall that Amanda shared messages and screenshots as proof after she got an SOS message from the victim. She revealed that she sent messages to Regina Daniels’ verified Instagram account to verify that indeed it was the actress and not an impersonator, and based on events that followed, it seemed pretty convincing that she was communicating with the right person, not an impersonator.
Regina has now released a video purportedly showing her in a police station with a man who she claims has been impersonating her to dupe young females. She went on to reveal that Amanda Chisom, who accused her of blackmailing a teenager, is wanted by police for making false accusations.
He was allegedly caught with two of his victims and incriminating information were found on his phone. Regina has explained that the phone numbers which TrueCaller showed to have been registered under her name were registered by the impersonator for his shady dealings.
However some things remain unclear;
- What did Regina mean with her caption about threats?
- How did this impersonator have access to her verified Instagram account which was sent back to the victim
- How come Regina’s brother called the victims
- Why did she keep mute on such a claim knowing full well the victim was a close friend of hers
- Is Regina denying that her number and IG accounts were both hacked
- If yes how was the impersonator able to know so much details about her friendship with the victim, their history together and names of close friends of the duo?
However Amanda has gone online to claim that she was has not done anything against the law, outing on social media her claims and unsolved answers.
Amanda wrote on her facebook page;
Like I said this case did not interest me beyond making sure anybody’s nude was uploaded, I still do not have an explanation to how a message I sent to a verified account made it to the hands of the so called blackmailers and how frances told the ” impersonator” that she made a post about her on her birthday on whatsapp and the verified account acknowledged and liked it. I have handed all info to the lawyers and all included in the report dropped in the report to the commissioner of police. End of matter, I am not police, I have done my part, let the police do their part, as for police wanting me,they know where to find me..
Final word on this Regina Daniels/Frances Issue
When I was approached, the first thing we did was to verify these blackmailing numbers using the True caller App and they came back positive as
- +234 907 499 3227 Regina Daniels
- +234 802 209 4934 Casie Snow
3.+234 813 386 2327 Richy Adams
- +234 705 748 9333 Sammy Daniels
But we were not satisfied, so Amanda sent the message below to Regina Daniel’s verified Instagram account..
“Madam celebrity, so you are threatening your fellow teenager with uploading her nudes if she does not sleep with a producer. Two offence, you are pimping a minor and threatening her with nude. I know you are a child but not so young to not know how to read. I advice you acquaint yourself with the cyber crime laws. I am taking up this case and will be suing you for blackmail and sex trafficking of a minor after which I will take your pathetic career to the cleaners. You silly child. Let me see just one picture of her anywhere that is nude, you , your mother, your brother, casie and the Richy Adams will spend new year in Jail. Thank God you turned 18, that means you are now grown enough to go to jail. This chat serves as a warning..The laywers will contact you. And for your actions, I am opening a file about you, woe be tide you, I find out you are pimping more girls or blackmailing them……”
Knowing it was a verified account, the idea was to see if the numbers above would react to the message.
For us, if the numbers responded, it was proof that Regina Daniels was in the know…
Hours later, these numbers, screen grabbed the said message and sent threatening messages via WhatsApp to the victim Frances.
At this stage, we screen grabbed those WhatsApp messages and released them to the public in the hopes that Regina would respond to them.
We still felt something was not quite adding up which necessitated a post I made basically asking Regina how it was possible for those numbers to get a hold of messages sent to her verified Instagram account.
I am not aware that she has responded to this but many things have happened since I made that post.
Regina still insists she’s being impersonated and has come out to deny ever knowing the Richy Adams guy who claims to be a nollywood producer based in Asaba.
Last night, this number 081252742136 claiming to be Sammy Daniels, Regina’s elder brother called both Amanda and France the victim.
I am going to upload the voice recording of the conversation the alleged Sammy had with the victim here.
There is also a Facebook back and forth conversation this alleged Sammy Daniels had with the victim before the blackmailing thing started.
I’m also uploading it here…
It is important to note that neither I nor Amanda are police investigators and what we did by breaking the news when we did was to essentially stop the threat of releasing the victims nudes.
We wanted the world to know what was happening and to put the alleged blackmailers on the defensive.
I can confirm to you that the victim and her mother had fruitful talks with her lawyer yesterday and this morning, a petition would be presented to the police to do the needful.
We want to believe that the police will get to the very root of this matter and thankfully, her mum is championing this as you can see from the pictures uploaded here at there lawyers office.
They are probably the only authorities who can approach the networks to verify the names behind those blackmailing numbers.
At the end of the day, a case of cyber blackmail has been established and it is up to the police to do due diligence and unravel the real culprits.
I must particularly thank Amanda Chisom for her passion and courage in giving cover to this most naive young lady.
Anyone in her shoes with blood flowing through their veins would have done same and at the end of the day, she has helped bring to the fore this evil penchant of mindless individuals taking advantage of innocent girls using social media.
Parents are advised to really monitor how their kids use social media for they are exposed to a whole lot of crap by mindless individuals.
Like I said, the police are best equipped to unravel this sordid case.
They must find out how a message to a verified Instagram account found its way into the hands of some blackmailing numbers.
We have no doubts that justice would take its cause.
If indeed Regina Daniels is being impersonated, she has Amanda to thank for exposing this crime against her person by people who use other peoples name to scam others but if she is involved in this, let the law take its cause.
We have done our bit by breaking this story and now the law MUST unravel it.
God bless and may our children never be caught in webs spun by men without conscience who prowl social media seeking naive minds to infest and destroy!
