Miss Anambra Sex Scandal: The Whole Truth Behind It

WHEN 19 year –old Miss Chidinma Okeke won the
beauty pageant organized by the state -owned Anambra
Broadcasting Service, ABS, in October last year, little did
anybody know that her reign would turn out to be an
anticlimax. Her colleagues and peers who envied her
after the exercise have started singing a different tune. In
fact, her emergence generated some controversy.

For instance, most people in the audience on the day of
the event had expected the crown to go to the
representative of one local government area in Anambra
Central senatorial zone, who was considered the best,
such that when Chidinma’s name was announced as the
winner, there were shouts of disapproval in the hall.
However, the judges knew better and Chidinma was
eventually crowned.
Chidinma was expected to hand over to a new queen
during another exercise earlier slated for next month, but
the people of Anambra State were taken aback when the
organizers unceremoniously stripped her of the title,
withdrew her star prize ( a car) and suspended
indefinitely the organization of next month’s pageant. The
‘Miss Anambra 2015’ boldly marked on the car was
immediately deleted and the car parked at the premises
of the ABS.
Shortly after she was stripped of the crown, the social
media was awash with video clips where the beauty
queen was allegedly practicing lesbianism with another
girl. Though she made herself incommunicado after the
incident, her lawyer, Mr. Ikenna Obidiegwu later arranged
for a press conference to be addressed by the beauty
queen to state her own side of the story.
The briefing, scheduled to take place at the NUJ Press
Center, Awka, ended abruptly when information filtered
into the area that some gunmen were coming to disrupt
the press conference. It was gathered that Miss Okeke
had vowed to expose those behind her ordeal in the
controversial video, but her lawyer later said that she
could no longer address journalists because her life was
Chidinma Okeke
A message she sent on her Face book account shortly
after read : “The moment I made public this intention to
speak with journalists, I was under siege of threats by my
blackmailers and traducers. They are seriously
threatening to shoot me at the press conference if I ever
open my mouth to say the real truth about the ugly
episode. “Since I have no protection and if I die now, the
truth will be buried forever, it’s my intention to sacrifice
myself to save not just myself but other girls and other
upcoming pageant by letting the world know the truth and
what we go through.”
She said her traducers had continued to assemble all
manner of expertise and professionals to edit the video
and send them in batches. Two episodes of the video
were released last week and there were fears that more
would come out by this weekend.
As the controversy raged, officials of ABS, organizers of
the pageant, on Thursday issued a statement denying
their complicity in the circulation of the video. The
statement read: “The attention of the management of the
Anambra Broadcasting Service, organizers of the Miss
Anambra Beauty Pageant has been drawn to a video with
lurid contents purportedly showing former Miss Anambra,
Miss Chidinma Okeke (Miss Anambra 2015).
“We wish to make the following clarifications; The said
Miss Chidinma Okeke who is allegedly linked to the lurid
content in circulation has served-out her term as Miss
Anambra 2015 and handed over the crown in line with the
terms and conditions of the Miss Anambra pageant.
“We condemn in clear terms any amoral behaviour/
conduct as suggested by the alleged lurid content in
circulation and do not condone such. It is on record that
the Miss Anambra Beauty pageant has been a platform
to empower Anambra women and celebrate our rich
culture and heritage. Winners of the pageant are bound
by contracts to be of good conduct and moral behaviour
and to uphold/maintain the honour in their position as
“Winners of the pageant also contract to refrain from any
personal relationship that could appear to hinder their
ability to perform the duties of their office as queen and
role model and we do not expect any less. We therefore
wish to dissociate the Miss Anambra pageant from any
discussions on the said allegations.
“We feel sufficiently perturbed by the mere reference
already made to the pageant and hereby state that we are
in no way connected to the controversy.
“We apologize to the government and good people of
Anambra State, our sponsors, supporters, friends and all
those associated with the Miss Anambra project for the
embarrassment the mere reference to the pageant in the
controversy may have caused; whilst reassuring of the
good intentions of the Miss Anambra pageant franchise.”
The Civil Liberties Organization, CLO, in a statement
issued by its South East coordinator, Comrade Alloy
Attah, described the incident as very shameful.
Attah said: “The sex act recorded and edited
professionally portrays the level of moral decadence in
the society. The video and act not only debased the pride
of motherhood and the worth of the girl-child but is a
pointer that many have descended to the level lower than
animals in their instincts.
“The action of Chidinma and her co-partners is highly
condemnable. While we know that lesbianism or same
sex is prohibited and criminalized in our laws, we need to
go beyond the actual fact and find out those behind the
scene and their roles in the sordid act.”
According to CLO, questions that should agitate the minds
of the people are: “Who recorded the video? Who leaked
it? What was the motive for recording such a thing? Who
commissioned the recording? Was it a precondition
before announcing Chidinma as winner of the pageant?
Who were the people behind the scene directing the act?”
To CLO, there were unanswered questions and the
organizers of the pageant need to tell the world what they
know in the entire saga and why they hurriedly withdrew
her crown and the star prize and later issued a statement
absolving themselves from the circulation of the video
when Chidinma threatened to expose the entire debacle.
The CLO further said: “Chidinma has alleged threat to her
life and had to chicken out of her earlier scheduled press
conference where she would have revealed what many of
us do not know. We call for adequate security for her
while she should be monitored closely so that she won’t
take any rash action that may injure her life.
“She needs psychological and spiritual rehabilitation as
well as deliverance. It is also very important that she is
guided to say all she knows about the ugly incident. The
act is a dent on the image of the state and those behind
the pageant. Anambra State is the light of the nation and
should be a pace setter in all facets of excellence.”
Anambra State government officials kept sealed lips on
the matter yesterday, but the incident had become the
talk of the town. One fall-out of the incident in the state
was that cucumber, which Chidinma and her sex mate in
the video used to represent the male organ during their
act, had become more or less a forbidden fruit as the
female gender no longer purchased it in public.
A female civil servant, who spoke on condition of
anonymity said: “We like cucumber in my family and I
usually buy it. But I discovered that as I was buying it at
the popular Aroma junction in Awka few days ago, many
eyes were on me. It was later that someone told me that
it was because of the Miss Anambra saga that made
people to stop buying it in public.”
