The whole of last week, Desire Luzinda’s nude pictures circulated on social media after the singer’s Nigerian boyfriend Franklin Emuobor intentionally leaked them to the Internet.
According to local media, Luzinda has made defiant statements about the posts, but is now in hiding. The country’s minister for ethics has called for Luzinda’s arrest and summoned her to appear and prove that she did not sanction the release of the forbidden images.
The ‘revenge porn’ images were reportedly released by an ex-boyfriend who said he, “Wanted to teach her a lesson”. However, he can be also charged with trafficking in pornography under the Computer Misuse Act.
