Instagram model is a loose term we throw around for attractive girls who take selfies for money on the gram. These girls had some BIG MONEY dreams.
Nigerian news sites are reporting that Jyoti and Kiran Matharoo are being detained there; Global Affairs Canada confirmed it is aiding the duo being held in Lagos.
They face allegations that they tried to extort and cyber-bully a Nigerian billionaire. The sisters Jyoti and Kiran Matharoo are accused of trying to blackmail the billionaire by claiming they had evidence of businessman Femi Otedola cheating on his wife that they would post on a notorious sex-scandal website.
Forbes magazineâ€™s list of 2016 billionaires says Otedola made his money in the energy sector; it estimates his net worth at $1.8 billion.
Following a private investigation, the sisters were arrested, the publication said.
The sisters are accused of being â€œresponsibleâ€ for the website NaijaGistLive and several other social media accounts on Instagram and Twitter used for â€œcyberbullyingâ€ around 274 people, â€œmostly based in various regions of Africa.â€
