Former Big Brother Africa winner, Uti Nwachukwu, has petitioned the Nigeria Police Force demanding a full-scale investigation into the rape allegation leveled against him by a Twitter user.
The reality TV star shared a copy of the four-paged petition letter he wrote to the police on Friday, June 5, 2020, on his Instagram handle.
In the caption of the post, Uti claimed he does not know the lady accusing him. He said he is angry, hurt, and utterly disgusted but he is scared to express his feelings over the fear of being attacked.
In frustration, the BBA star said he cannot defend himself. He said: "How do I defend myself against someone I can neither identify, nor address and still remain calm."
He further spoke of his being a strong advocate against rape who always listen to victims and let their voices be heard. While working on giving victims a voice, Uti said he never considered what to do if you’re the accused; and that’s the position he has found himself now.
Legit.ng had reported that Uti Nwachukwu became the latest male celebrity to be accused of sexual abuse by a Nigerian lady on social media. The accuser identified as Kambili Korie on Twitter penned a lengthy narration that detailed her experience with Nwachukwu.
Korie in her post claimed that the incident happened way back in 2017. She said they became casual friends after meeting at a men’s cloth store where she worked as an apprentice.
The lady narrated how she had never imagined Uti was capable of abuse. According to Korie, after they met he expressed interest in her particularly because she was dark-skinned.
A couple of Nigerian celebrities have been mentioned in the trending rape allegation in Nigeria. While some believe this is just another smear campaign to ruin the reputations of these famous people, others simply think these are the works of disgruntled ex-lovers who are out to get their own pound of flesh.
