Theo Ukpaa who released a statement to that effect, had initially maintained he has nothing to say till he was done with his honeymoon. Read his statement on the rape allegation below;
Emilia Samuel, the TV Presenter who also works as a model, had accused Filmmaker Theo Ukpa via an Instagram post. According to the lady who took to her Instagram page to write on the incident, the alleged rape happened when she was just 16 years old and unfortunately, it was the man that de-flowered her because she was still a virgin at the time.
In her post, she claimed she recently came across his page after he got married and she couldn’t help herself as the memories continue to haunt her. 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 rape.
Her post read in part;
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.
The rape allegation however earned him a sack from Linda Ikeji TV, where he was working as Head of Programmes. Linda Ikeji wrote;
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.
