"I Don’t Know Where My Daughter Is.” Chidinma Okeke's Father Laments

Amidst the frenzy following Chidinma
Okeke’s viral sex videos, Miss Anambra
2015’s family finally opens up to Sunday
Sun as regards their own side of the story.

“On arrival, our reporter met the family
residence under lock. The thick bush growing
inside the compound easily discloses to any
visitor that the family must be residing
somewhere else in the city. But members of
their extended family living in the next
compound gave their words on the raging
Speaking to our reporter on the telephone,
Chidinma’s father, Sir Jeremiah Okeke who is
living in Aba, Abia State with his family,
lamented that the family had been going
through emotional and psychological trauma
since it all started.
With a voice laden with heavy emotions, the 65-
year-old man told our reporter that the family
had handed over the situation to God.
“Chidinma is my own daughter” he said, “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 has before the incident
complained to him that she was being sexually
harrassed, 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
He said he was not suspecting anybody of
having a hand in his daughter’s ordeal as
speculated in the social media.
Going back memory lane, Okeke recalled that
God’s mighty hand on him was evidenced on his
miraculous survival from his childhood
“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.”
The depressed Okeke, who obviously needs
assistance to enable him bounce back to his
years of comfort told Saturday Sun that his
business which hitherto was flourishing was hit
by the economic tsunami sweeping through the
“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.”
Chidinma’s cousin, Blessing Chinenye Nwafor,
who our reporter met in their village in Ogboji,
told Saturday Sun regrettably that the sex video
had gone round their village.
“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.”
Though the video had gone viral, Blessing told
Saturday Sun that she was yet to believe it.
“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.”
She described Chidinma as “a good girl”
pointing out that “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
For Mrs Hope Nwaka, Sir Okeke’s niece, her
spirit tells her that Chidinma was innocent of
the allegations.
“My spirit tells me that Chidinma did not do
that thing she was being accused of; I know her
very well. I see it as something planned to
smear her name and that of our entire family.
It is also paining my daughter, Chinenye but I
told her to relax that it was not true.
“We are living in the last days. The love among
brethren would grow cold. Nobody would want
another person’s success. But I have not
believed that stuff was true. It was forged. She
could not have done that. Even if she did, know
it that she was forced to do it.”
Asked on the implications it could have on the
yet to be married sisters of Chidinma, Mrs
Nwaka said that it would not in any way stop
them from getting suitors.
“For now, it is only one of her sisters that has
gotten married but it will never stop others
from getting married too. God is with our
family and He will continue to bless us with
everything we need including ensuring that her
remaining sisters get married at the
appropriate time.”
