This is what she posted on her Facebook page:

"I woke up to the reality of the fact that in a twinkle of an eye, one's personality, character and image, built over a life time, could crumble with so much ease without the victim being in the know.

Today I write to tell... is it my story? Or is it a story? Well, I don't even have the words to caption it in anyway, but do know I was a victim who knew not what was been done with my image or pictures?

Instagram, Facebook etc, are lovely apps but in as much, the rate of impersonation is alarming. To cut the story short... a fraudster picked my pictures from instagram and opened a Facebook account with my picture and another name (), which isn't or wasn't mine, and duped a lot of intending male suitors, to the tune of N2.5 million.

Unfortunately for him, Karma caught up with him and now he is in custody of the law enforcement agents. As amazed as I am on this callous act of impersonation, I would like to use this medium to disassociate my self from ALL the fraudulent acts done using my pictures, as I was never in the know nor do I know the fraudster from anywhere.

For all his deeds, he shall take full responsibility for his actions and would be punished according to laws of the land. .

On a final note, I would like to thank captors of this fraudster as they have saved me from further embarrassments and also others who could fall victim to his deceitful acts and evil schemes. Thank you very much and God bless us all."
