In an interview with media, Yoyo said that the hacker even conducted a live session on her IG to sniff drugs!
“After he hacked into my account, he deleted my account information, photos, contact number and email address. He should be that person who pretended to be a personnel from the social media platform, who sent me an email. He sent me a link and asked me to verify my account, and I believed it! When I recalled back, something was not right. He said that if I did not click on the link within 24 hours, he would close my account. It should be that link which stole all my information!”
