Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji, has finally exposed her former staffer, Theo Ukpaa as a violator of vulnerable girls.
Ms. Ikeji revealed this in an open letter to her sacked TV staff as she weighed in over allegations that Mr. Ukpaa raped a lady, Emilia Samuel, when she was 16 years old.
Mr. Ukpaa, who was sacked by his employer over the allegation, had denied it.
But in the letter, which was released on Friday on her blog, Ms. Ikeji warned Ukpaa to stop calling his rape victims liars, or she would come after him and get him arrested for the many young girls he had unlawfully violated.
Ms. Ikeji’s letter read: “Dear Theo Ukpaa, I have known you for many years and I’ve shown you nothing but love and kindness and made you the head of my TV channel, but listen my dear friend, if you dare release another statement denying what you did or calling another one of your victims a liar, not only will I expose you, I will have you arrested and charged to court where you can go defend yourself properly.
“These girls – and I didn’t say girl, I said girls – may not have a voice, money or time to take it up with you but I do, so please don’t test me.
“I know more than most and right now I can’t tell you how ashamed I am to have given you another chance in my organisation. You weren’t sacked solely over Emilia’s story. I am not so stupid that I would let go of the person I relied on the most to help me run my TV channel over a story by someone I don’t know. You were dismissed last year, remember? And I’d never heard of Emilia or her story.
“If you think I am going to sit back and watch you victimise your victims, or humiliate them further by making them seem like liars, you have another thing coming. What you need now is seek help and if you’re too ashamed to do so, at least hide your head in shame and don’t dare call another girl a liar. Please don’t make me come for you, Theo! Be warned!”
CHECKPOINTCHARLEY understands that the allegation against Ukpaa came two days after his wedding, when Mrs. Samuel, now married with three children, released details of how she was raped several times by Theo when she was just 16 years of age.
According to her, she caught in Mr. Ukpaa’s web when she made it to the top three of a spice girl competition organised by entertainment channel, Soundcity.
