Cyprian Okoro, 55, was caught with a stash of ‘extreme’ pornography, including a video of a man having sex with a snake, a court heard. He allegedly stored the images on his phone, having received them via WhatsApp, the Old Bailey heard.
They included three videos of a woman having sex with a dog, one of a man having sex with a snake and one of a woman having sex with a horse. Okoro is charged with five counts of possessing pornography of a ‘grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise obscene character’.
He is also accused of one charge of possessing indecent images of a child relating to a video of a two-year-old boy. The footage came to light when his phone was seized by the police and examined by specialist officers, before being returned.
The videos were found to have been stored on a password protected specialist App or vault. In his police interview, Okoro said pictures would be sent to him on WhatsApp and automatically go into his photos gallery. .
Prosecutor Nicola Devas, however, said since the indecent videos had been manually moved to the vault, it was clear he had viewed it. Okoro, of Streatham, south west London, denies the charges against him.
