The lawyer of troubled beauty queen Chidinma Okeke has refuted claims that the 19-year-old student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, who is in the eye of the storm following controversy trailing a lesbian sex tape involving her, has left the country on exile.
Information reveals that speculations about the whereabouts of Chidinma who was declared the winner of Miss Anambra Beauty Pageant 2015 organised by the Anambra Broadcasting Service but was stripped off her crown unceremoniously, started when family members of the beauty queen raised an alarm over the whereabouts of their daughter.
But Barrister Ikenna Obidiegwu, counsel to Chidinma in a statement said his client has not exiled the country.
“I have said it severally that my client, Chidinma is in Nigeria. She is in Awka. We shall address a press conference this week to say everything about this issue.” He added.
Recall earlier that an initial press conference which was scheduled to hold at the Nigeria Union of Journalists Press Centre, Awka, was abruptly called off when news filtered into the venue of the press gathering that some gunmen were coming to disrupt it.
Chidinma was said to have sworn to expose “the powerful cabal” behind her ordeal in the sordid video, but her lawyer later said that she could no longer address the press because “her life had been threatened.”
Chidinma who at first denied being the one in the controversial video, later confessed she is the one when more explicit versions of the video was put online, while she also claims that she is being hounded by a group of people she described as ‘traducers’.
