Just some days back, Mr. Emilia Samuel, a TV presenter and model, accused a filmmaker working under Linda Ikeji, Theo Ukpaa of ra.pe. The lady claimed he ra.ped her when she was 16.
She claimed he might want to deny committing the act, but her model colleagues who were working with her at the time can attest to the allege ra.pe.
Read her post in case you missed:
Here’s what happened to me years back, I forgot about it partially and I ran into his page last week when he got married and the memories came back. He was working at @soundcityafrica as at when it happened and he presently works at @officiallindaikeji please kindly read before you judge and I know most models can attest to this.
Pleaseeeee help me repost this @instablog9ja @tundeednut @stelladimokokorkus @ijeomadaisy @bellanaijaonline @olorisupergal @nigerianwomendiary @generalwayne @chinnysblogng thank you. This is the guy I’m talking about @theoukpaa
The update development to the story now is that his employer Linda Ikeji TV has sacked him of his job at the organisation.
Here is their statetment below:
I personally wanted to let everyone know that Theo Ukpaa, who was Head of Programmes at Linda Ikeji TV is no longer a staff of the company. His job with my company was terminated on Monday August 27th just a day after I read the heartbreaking story of Emilia Samuel.
The general public is therefore advised not to transact any business with him in the name of Linda Ikeji TV as anyone who does it, does so at his/her own risk.
