I am Brandon, founder and president of a humans right defense association here in cameroon. I got blackmailed by some acquaintances,dishing my name on his facebook blog because a bisexual friend of mine propositioned him after realising he was open minded and had similar experiences in the past. The guy in question who has been thrashing my name on blogs told me his dad is a diplomat and mom a journalist, they will have me jailed and have me all over the media. I told him to go ahead i now give him my official authorisation. He knew this was not possible so he turned to facebook as area of last resort and started saying whatever thing got to him you could use to bring down someone's name
