Uti Nwachukwu is a Nollywood actor and the winner of Big Brother Africa Season 5. He was recently in the news when he was called out on the grounds of rape.
An IG user with the username @kambilikorie had gone on Instagram to drag Uti for allegedly raping her some years ago.
However, there's a twist to the event of things as the handle used to accuse the actor has been deleted. None, Uti has spoken up on the allegations levelled against him.
He took to Instagram to say,
"I didn’t want to be speaking this unfortunate allegations gain; but it’s also important that I update you all on recent developments. •
My accuser- who’s account was created only recently to accuse me of this horrendous crime, has been deleted before investigators could identify her. •
This is unfortunate because it doesn’t fully exonerate me from the accusation the way the courts would have done; I REALLY needed the opportunity to prove my innocence so this culprit could face the full penalties. •
However, I am still going to continue to work and cooperate with the police to get to the bottom of this.
Victims of sexual abuse need to be heard and believed, and it’s why I will continue to pursue this to prevent anyone else from making it even harder from victims to speak out. •
Thank you all for your messages and show of support; it’s been a difficult period, but I appreciate how so many of you who know me, have stood by me.🙏🏾"
