Nikita Mirzani's Online Gambling Advertisement Viral, Police Open Their Voice


Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Online gambling advertisements have been popping up on platform X (formerly Twitter) for some time now. One of them features artist Nikita Mirzani.

Many netizens have complained about the appearance of online gambling advertisements on their timelines. Because the ad appears from an account that you don't even follow (follow) by user X.

The complaint also reached the Cyber ​​Crime Bareskrim Polri. A user reported an online gambling advertisement featuring Nikita Mirzani, and in the upload marked or tagged the accounts of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and National Police Chief Listyo Sigit.


Bareskrim, via the @CCICPolri account, answered the complaint. The police promised to carry out an investigation into the reported case.

Not to forget, Bareskrim added that the public can report cases to the channels that have been prepared. Namely via the official Cyber ​​Patrol email.

“Hello Cyber ​​Friends, Thank you for the information. We will carry out an in-depth & investigation into the case in question,” wrote Bareskrim, quoted on Tuesday (20/2/2024).

“If there is any other information that we need to follow up on, please contact us via email at [email protected]. Thank you,” added the agency.
