As the lesbian sex scandal case of the former Miss Ananbra State, Miss Chidinma Okeke, continues to linger, the Association of Beauty Pageant and Fashion Exhibition Organization of Nigeria, ABPFEON has stepped in, calling for an investigation into the matter and possible prosecution of the beauty queen.
In a statement issued and signed by the Secretary General of the Association, Alex Nwankwo, ABPFEON insists that the ex-beauty queen must be made to face the law for being involved in a kind of relationship which is a crime in the Nigerian constitution and punishable by 14 years jail term.
The statement read:
“If Nigeria Police were really interested in this case, the actual culprit who is Miss 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 politicised. 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.”
Meanwhile, reports made round on Thursday that the Enugu State police had arrested a group of men said to be the masterminds of the leaked lesbian sex video of former Miss Chidinma Okeke.
A Facebook user, Martin Beck Nworah, had said that the 7-man gang was arrested in Enugu. Posting pictures of the alleged suspects he 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.”
However, the spokesperson for the Enugu State police, Ebere Armaraizu, had disprived 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”.
Also, the Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sam Okaula, dismissed the report, saying the command know nothing about any sex scandal involving the former beauty queen.
