Delta State politician Prince Kpokpogri, the ex-boyfriend to Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh, has allegedly been arrested by the Department of State Services.
This was made known by Instagram blogger Gistlovers alongside a petition to the commissioner of police stating Prince Kpokpogri is being investigated for alleged blackmail, extortion and obtaining private information by false pretence.
The blogger likened Prince Kpokpogri as a time bomb about to explode, and if released from the custody of DSS, numerous people will also arrest him.
The blogger wrote: Kpokpogiri picked up by DSS some minutes ago,i go dey update Una as the matter take dey go,plenty offence dey the guy leg,from blackmailing politicians to threatening ladies with their nu*s,i Dey come,if them release am today,another person go pick am up tomorrow,them plenty wey wan face am now,Kpokpogiri is a time bmb still walking,about to explode.I come in peace.
This comes after Tonto ‘s colleague Doris Ogala alleged that Prince Kpokpogri blackmailed senators, former and current Governors, NDDC MD and many others.
