YESTERDAY, we can authoritatively report that Comrade John Idumange briefed a Port Harcourt-based Lawyer on the allegation leveled against him by one Chinonso Prisca Nwangwu. The Lawyer, who himself is an activist, has elected to handle the matter pro bono, adding that he will file his suit at the convenience of his client after the expiration of the 7 days period if the said Chinonso fails to apologize in writing to clear his name.
The Solicitor disclosed that because of the poor economy, most girls especially in the urban areas try to foist themselves on men they believe would solve their problem and this trend has been worsened by the Social Media. So many girls abuse the social media by using it as a platform for prostitution with a view to making ends meet. The solicitor who hails from a neighbouring Cross River State said allegations about sexual harassment on the social media are actionable in Nigerian Courts and wondered why a 34 year old lady who ordinarily should be in her matrimonial home, would be scouting for political appointment in another State.
My client - the SSA to the Governor on Research & Social Media is a respectable man with high family values and has been in activism for upwards of 23 years. He had earlier warned that if the Lady -Chinonso who hails from Imo State fails to tender a written apology seven days after she made her allegations, he would be left with no option that to charge the matter to court to prove his innocence so it would serve as a deterrent to other people who have made blackmail their stock in trade.
