Arrest Chidinma, Make Her Face 14 Years in Prison – Pageant Association Tasks police
Although the Police has debunked reports it arrested a group of men allegedly behind the leaked lesbian sex video of former Miss Anambra, Chidinma Okeke, the Association of Beauty Pageant and Fashion Exhibition Organization of Nigeria, ABPFEON, has called for an investigation into the issue.
Reports made the rounds on Thursday that the 7-man gang was apprehended in Enugu.
A Facebook user, Martin Beck Nworah, had said the police arrested the guys at ‘Enugu’.
He posted some pictures of the alleged suspects and wrote: “The guys are allegedly part of a 7-member gang who specialize in blackmailing ladies, especially UNIZIK students.
“They are allegedly the guys who leaked the viral lesbian sex video of ex-Miss Anambra, Chidinma Okeke.”
But the Enugu State Police spokesperson, Ebere Armaraizu, had debunked the claim, saying, “I’m not aware of this. No, no, no! No arrest of such was made in Enugu.
“I’m in the Command and if anything like that happened, I should know and make it available,” he told DAILY POST.
Also, the Commissioner of Police, CP in Anambra, Mr Sam Okaula, dismissed the report, saying the command was not aware of any sex scandal involving the former beauty queen.
Following the police’s comment, the ABPFEON made its stand known, insisting that the ex-beauty queen must be made to face the law.
In a statement signed by the Secretary General, Alex Nwankwo, the association said, “If Nigeria Police were really interested in this case, the actual culprit who is Chidinma Okeke should be looked for.
“There is no ignorance in law. Besides it is a federal case which attracts 14 years in imprisonment.
“We believe if there is a petition against Chidinma Okeke on this banned federal offence of Lesbianism on the table of Nigeria police, they would have commenced hunting for her arrest.
“Getting Chidinma is far easier than getting her blackmailers because in one of her releases or purported statements behind camera, she sighted that the blackmailers had been extorting money from her; that means she is either known to them or she knows who she has been sending money to.
“A scandal or story that has gained world attention like this, and topping Nigeria Google presence as at 3 days ago even more than Nigeria’s economic recession, should not be politicized.
“To save us this headache, Chidinma Okeke can come out and identify the boys and also explain to us the chain connection, and names mentioned including government personalities in stories attributed to her.”
Recall that Ms Okeke is currently entangled in a lesbian sex tape scandal.
In a video which has since gone viral on the internet, she was seen having a ‘cozy time’ with her female sex partner, who unconfirmed sources simply identified as Ada.
The video shows her on a lesbian act with Ada, who is reportedly one of her close friends and happens to be her personal assistant and also the 3rd runner up at the queen of democracy, 2014.
