According To Daily News, Two Nigerian men have been accused of orchestrating a sextortion scheme that drove a teenage Michigan boy to suicide have been extradited to the U.S., officials said.

“Sextortion is a horrible crime,”

 U.S. Attorney Mark Totten said in a press release.

“To those who commit these crimes: We will pursue you around the world. And to those who are victims: Please know we stand ready to help you.”

Samuel Ogoshi, 22, and Samson Ogoshi, 20, are charged in connection with the death of Jordan DeMay. DeMay was a 17-year-old who lived in Marquette, Mich. He died March 25, 2022 from a self-inflicted gunshot. The Ogoshis were indicted in May 2023 alongside another Nigerian man, Ezekiel Robert, who is still awaiting extradition.

The suspects posed as women and solicited naked or otherwise compromising pictures from more than 100 teenage boys and young men across the U.S., according to the feds. Investigators traced an Instagram account with the username


To Samuel Ogoshi. The day DeMay died by suicide, he’d sent a naked picture to the


Account. Ogoshi responded by saying he would send the picture to everyone DeMay knew if he didn’t pay $1,000, according to investigators. When DeMay sent $300, Ogoshi wrote

 “Enjoy your miserable life.”

“I’m [killing myself right now],”

DeMay wrote back.

“[Because] of you.”


Ogoshi allegedly wrote back.

“Do that fast. Or I’ll make you do it.”

Samuel Ogoshi, the eldest of the three men, is charged with sexual exploitation of a minor resulting in death. All three men are charged with conspiracy to sexually exploit minors and conspiracy to distribute child porn.
