The winner of the 2015 Miss Anambra State Beauty Pageant, Miss Chidinma Okeke, who was recently de-crowned following the appearance of a lesbian record involving her and another girl, has claimed that her life was under threat.
The former beauty queen had called a press conference at the Nigeria Union of Journalists’ Press Centre in Awka to “tell the real story” behind the lesbian record and how her blackmailers were hellbent on running her down.
But the press briefing was abruptly canceled after newsmen had gathered.
According to a post on her Facebook wall, Miss Chidinma said that she had been warned not to go to the venue or risk being assassinated.
“Considering the need to make the world know the truth about the trending scandal, and what we have been going through before then and now, I decided to hold World Press conference at the NUJ Press Centre, Awka today.
“But from the moment I made public this intention, I have been 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 would be buried forever, it’s my intension 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.”
