The National Coordinator of the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, in a statement issued on Friday, requested that the country’s policing institution must not stand by and allow alleged blackmailers have a field day, even as the rights group asked for measures to safeguard the life of the embattled Miss Anambra 2015.
HURIWA also dismissed as hasty and totally unacceptable, the decision of the organizers of the Miss Anambra Beauty pageant to hurriedly announce the dethronement of Miss Okeke as the reigning Miss Anambra beauty queen even before the law enforcement authorities could conclusively verify the authenticity or otherwise of the so-called lesbianism s*x tape and the motive for the leakage.

It affirmed that the Jungle justice meted out on the young Nigerian girl on the basis of an alleged sex tape that has not being forensically investigated and conclusively verified and the entire gamut of the ulterior motivation for the leakage uncovered, is completely antithetical to the principle of rule of law as enshrined in section 36 (5) of the Nigerian Constitution which states “Every person who is charged with a criminal offence shall be presumed to be innocent until he is proved guilty; Provided that nothing in this section shall invalidate any law by reason only that the law imposes upon any such person the burden of proving particular facts.”
The rights group expressed trepidation at the reported decision of Miss Okeke to stay away from a pre-planned media briefing for fear of her life since she alleged a plot to eliminate her if she discloses the underlying facts behind the entire controversial sex tape.
HURIWA called on Governor Willie Obiano as the Chief Security Officer of Anambra State to also take measures to prevent any attempt at silencing the embattled beauty queen.
Former, Miss Anambra, Chidinma Okeke is involved in a lesbian s*x tape scandal, which has since gone viral on the internet, which 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.
