After a technical diagnosis of the complaint, the Decoy Team narrowed down on the suspect a few days later. Sources close to the team disclosed that the suspect couldn’t be picked because of the prevalence of Covid 19.
The suspect in his statement to the police confessed to have been the mastermind behind the ploy to publish some nude pictures of Waka Queen in exchange for money, adding that he was alone in the scheme.
The suspect, a 2017/2018 Electrical Engineering student of Yabatech, disclosed that he saw the nude pictures in a memory card which he picked up on the floor in Yabatech sometime in November 2019.
