After receiving the said explicit images from the two teenagers - – believed to be 14 and 16 years old – the two tertiary students decided to share them around amongst their friends and cronies.

The two had initially demanded for a ransom from their victims, in a form of credit, threatening to leak the nude photos if their request was not granted.

Upon realizing their victims were not willing to give in to their demands, they uploaded the nude photos onto the internet.

The actions of the suspects led to the parents of the victims reporting the case to the Cyber Crime Unit of the Criminal Investigative Department (CID), for them to be arrested.

Both suspects are currently in the grips of the police and are helping out with investigations.
