Police in Liberia have confirmed the arrest of Nicholas Davies, known in Nigeria as George Wade, the ex-lover of Nigerian actress Empress Njamah accused of blackmailing and leaking intimate videos of the movie star.
News about his arrest spread on Monday after he was seen being led by the police in handcuffs.
At a press conference broadcast live on Facebook, a police chief alleged that Davies preys on wealthy women, lures them into romantic relationships, and manipulates them to swindle their fortunes.
The police chief said, “Notorious scammer Nicholas Jack Davies has been arrested by the Liberian National Police severally and charged to court. Fortunately, he returned to the community after bail and carried out the same actions he was previously charged with.
“There have been several complaints against the 39-year-old, of which the suspect has victimised over 20 females. As a result, he is involved in absconding with their personal belongings and expensive materials.
“With the recent report brought against him, we began a robot search, and he was arrested at Miami Beach while attempting to victimise other females. There is prior information of the suspect carrying the same act in Nigeria on an actress.
“He spent approximately 70 months in the country before committing the crime against the female actress.”
The police also urged other potential victims of Davies to come forward and report their complaints, indicating that there may be additional individuals who have been targeted by his fraudulent activities.
Empress Njamah had said the man entered her life when she was vulnerable following the death of her best friend, Ada Ameh.
