The much publicised lesbian sex-tape of Ms. Okeke has for over three weeks continued to raise concern across the country.
Ms Okeke is currently embroiled in a lesbian sex-tape scandal, in a video which has since gone viral on the internet where she was seen having a ‘cozy time’ with her female sex partner, who unconfirmed sources simply identified as Ada.
The video shows her in 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.
While the police had said it was not aware of any sex scandal involving the former beauty queen, and debunking claims it arrested a group of men allegedly behind the leaked lesbian sex tape, the Association of Beauty Pageant and Fashion Exhibition Organization of Nigeria, ABPFEON, had pushed for her immediate arrest and prosecution.
As concerns continue to generate, her family, who has been mum on the incident, told The Sun they had been going through psychological trauma and emotional distress since the news started making the rounds.
Chidinma’s father, Sir Jeremiah Okeke who lives in Aba, Abia State with his family, said the family had handed over the situation to God.
The 65-year-old man said, “Chidinma is my own daughter but there is nothing much I can say about this because there is a lifestyle adopted by my family. We don’t foment troubles.
“I, as the father, have committed everything to God in prayers. Human being cannot fight our cause but only God in heaven. We are in serious prayers for God to intervene. I don’t have anybody on earth except God.”
Asked if his daughter had before the incident complained to him that she was being sexually harassed, he said he was confused about the whole matter, even as he raised the alarm over the whereabouts of his daughter.
“I am confused about the whole thing as of now. It is only when I set my eyes on my daughter that I will know about all these. As it stands now, I don’t know where my daughter is.
“I am not suspecting anybody of having a hand in his daughter’s ordeal as speculated in the social media.
“There are many ways God is fighting my battle. I was only five years when my father died. I don’t know whether I got up to six years before my mother died too.
“I don’t have anybody but it is only God that sustained me all through. It was same God that assisted me to raise and train all my children. All the family members are praying.
“As it stands now, my daughter is still a small girl. I don’t know whether she is still alive or dead. But all I know is that God will prove Himself worthy to fight His children’s battle. I don’t have much to say for now.
“So many people have told me to take certain actions but me and my God are still communicating through prayers. There are several ways God reveals some things to me. I am not suspecting anybody but only God knows who is behind that; whether he is human or spirit. I’m leaving whoever that is behind it to his conscience.
“The life of my daughter is most important to me now. Wherever she is, let her be alive for me.
“I am a businessman but because of this harsh economic condition, my business is no longer moving as expected. You understand? I am just doing little things to feed.
“I was a distributor for Peak Milk here in Aba, Abia State but for some time now, I have stopped because I don’t have strength for fomenting troubles.
“We borrow money from the banks to embark on the Peak Milk distribution business but when it became too competitive, in addition to the losses incurred in the course of doing the business, I stopped,” the embattled father added.
Chidinma’s cousin, Blessing Chinenye Nwafor, said, “There was a day I was going out on a mission, some persons stopped me and told me about the sex video but I didn’t believe it. One of them said he saw the picture but not the video. I left them in anger.
“After walking some distance, another guy called my attention and showed me the video. The people in that area started mocking me; saying all sorts of foul things. I started crying and walked away from their midst.
“But later on, I learnt that what that boy did in the village was to share it with the villagers. I am personally annoyed about his attitude and I have resolved to call him later and caution him.
“They have an only daughter in their family. Suppose it were to be her, would he be going about and be showing it to everybody in the village? I have not seen him but once I see him, we would have some axe to grind.
“When I heard about this sex video for the first time, even though I didn’t believe it, I was not happy at all. I told my mother about it when I returned home and she was very sad all through. She could not sleep that night.
“Chidinma is a good girl. Personally, I don’t believe that she did that stuff. I am of the view that she was drugged and forced to do that thing. It is also possible that her enemies are behind that.”
Meanwhile, the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, UNIZIK, Awka, has reacted to the incident.
The 19-year-old model, until her involvement in the scandal, was a 300-level student of Medical Laboratory of the institution.
The Director of Information and Public Relations, UNIZIK, Dr Emmanuel Ojukwu, said, “The Nnamdi Azikiwe University has not taken any position yet on the matter.
“For now, we regard everything we have been hearing as speculation. We will find out from the head of her department and the Dean of her faculty what is happening.
“The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ahaneku, will be briefed and then the University will know the next line of action.
“This thing is procedural because the Head of the Department would be told to find out what is happening because for now, the whole thing is speculation to us and he will report to the Dean.
“You know the reporting system in the university. And then the Dean will brief the Vice-Chancellor.
“And you know at Nnewi, we have a Provost in charge of College of Health Sciences who is like the boss of all the medical departments and faculty in Nnewi. So the Vice-Chancellor has not been briefed.
“Whatever that is happening is still within the realm of speculation,” Ojukwu was quoted as saying.
