Nigerian rapper, Owoh Chimaobi Chrismathner popularly known as Zoro has petitioned the police to investigate rape allegations leveled against him.
Earlier on, an Instagram user identified as @mystic_sweetness had accused Zoro of raping her in his friends house in Magodo area of Lagos on April 20, 2015.
Reacting to the allegation via Instagram, Zoro shared screenshot of a tweet in which he decried reports of rape in Calabar in 2015. The rapper who stated that he feels terrible that someone will accuse him of rape, assured fans that he will never partake in such act or have a relationship with a rapist.
Now, Zoro has petitioned the police to investigate the rape allegations.
He posted a copy of the petition with the caption: “Dear Fans,
Further to my last post, my team (legal and management) and I have reported the rape allegation leveled against me to the Nigeria Police.
I want to implore you my fans, friends and family to kindly disbelieve any lies from the unscrupulous lady while the Police continue their investigation on the matter.
I am more than certain that my innocence will vindicate me eventually.
Finally, it is important to fight against false rape accusation. The implication of false accusation on the ‘falsely accused’ is grievous and causes mental, and psychological damages which can affect business and personal relationships. It will also deter rape victims from speaking up because of disbelief and stigma.
Thank you very much for all your calls, messages and well wishes during this period.”
