Owo Chimaobi Chrismathner, a Nigerian Rap artist, popularly known as “Zoro” has written a petition to the Nigerian police over the rape allegations leveled against him.
A lady @mystic_sweetness had come out on Instagram to accuse Zoro of rapping her on April 20, 2015 in Magodo area of Lagos State. The accusation had gone viral.
In furtherance to his denial and promise to take the matter up. He has petitioned the police demanding an investigation into the rape allegation.
He however also went on his Instagram page with a post to his 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.
