A press briefing scheduled for Wednesday for Miss Anambra, Chidinma Okeke, to state her own version of a sex scandal rocking her could not hold.
The briefing scheduled for 10am at the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Anambra State council, in Awka, ended abruptly following information that some gunmen would attack the secretariat.
Miss Chidinma Okeke, was the winner of the 2015 Most Beautiful Girl in Anambra pageant competition.
Her alleged lesbian video went virile on the social media recently .
She was reported to have vowed to expose the complicity of some top politicians and government officials in the sex scandal at the botched press conference.
But no sooner had the journalists arrived the venue of the conference than calls started coming, threatening that some gunmen were on their way to attack the venue.
The journalists had to flee the place for their lives.
“Life has no duplicate,” one of the journalists, quipped.
A message sent by the embattled Okeke using her Facebook account read in part, “The moment I made public this intention to speak with journalists, I have been under 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 save not just myself but other girls and other upcoming pageant by letting the world know the truth and what we go through.”
Okeke said her traducers had continued to assemble all manner of expertise and professionals to edit the video and send them in batches.
She added that she would not be surprised if more videos were published subsequently.
Meanwhile, her counsel, Ikenna Obidiegwu, told our correspondent on the telephone that his client had to stay away from the press briefing after his attempt to get the Anambra State Police Commissioner, Mr. Sam Okaula, to provide security for the beauty queen failed.
“The commissioner said the notice was too short, and that he could not mobilise police security for the queen immediately,” he said.
Obidiegwu said his client’s blackmailers were powerful people in the state, adding that at the appropriate time their identities would be unveiled.
He denied reports that his client had been smuggled out of the country.
“I was with her just 30 minutes before speaking to you,” the lawyer maintained.
