Jackson Kelly, created an account on the Lithuanian mobile social networking site, Eskimi, about two weeks ago with a picture of the speaker on his profile.
After a week of investigations, police and officers from the speakers office lured Kelly to a Lae Hotel and arrested him yesterday morning.
For two weeks, Jackson Kelly, the online profile lure women. His profile name Hotboy4214 had the picture of the Theo Zurenoc. It was perhaps his major draw card.
In those two weeks, Hotboy4214 attracted more than 100 online followers. Kelly was able to get personal mobile numbers of more than 50 women aged between 16 and 52. Many were actively texting him and exchanging pornographic material.
Yesterday, police and officers from the speaker’s office tricked him into coming to the Phills Motel in in Lae where police made the arrest. An officer from the speaker’s office said for the past two weeks members of the public had been calling the speakers office asking if the profile actually belonged to the speaker.
Eskimi has about 3000 Papua New Guineans registered online. It has become on the fastest growing mobile websites in the world. Police confiscated Jackson’s mobile phone which contained hundreds of nude pictures of Papua New Guinean women of all ages.
What is also disturbing is the high number of secondary and primary students exchanging nude videos and still pictures via the mobile social networking site for phone credits. Jackson who spoke to EMTV’s Lae Bureau said the problem is far worse than many imagine.
Kelly was later taken to the Lae police station. He has been formally charged with possession of pornographic material. Further charges relating to the impersonation of the speaker will be laid today.
Police will now be following the leads provided by Kelly. The names and phone numbers will be used to investigate the matter further. EMTV
