The allegation was denied by the indigenous rapper, Zoro on Saturday, June 6 and vowed to challenge it in court.
Barely 72 hours after he denied the allegation, the indigenous rapper has petitioned the police and demanded an investigation into the said allegation.
A copy of the petition was shared online by the indigenous rapper.
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.” he wrote.
