Lotanna Igwe was 17 at the time of the alleged incident and it will also be considered as statutory rape.
Mustapha Audu’s legal representative has rubbished the allegations.
Part of the statement from his lawyer reads, “Just a quick one to inform you that my client, Mustapha Audu is quite disturbed about the trending #Sugabelly false accusations against him and his friends, online, especially as he tries to align with the reality of the death of his beloved father.”
He goes on to discredit her allegations as blackmail.
“Lotanna Igwe-Odunze, how she wanted Mustapha to marry her at all cost, and when that failed, she resulted to cheap blackmail to gain cheap publicity to promote her blogging career, as well sending associates behind to ask for pay-off from Mustapha.”
The statement also promised to disclose details of “email conversations, confession of love, ‘wild things’, imaginations, nude pictures of her sent to Mustapha, in efforts to get Mustapha back, plus how she was ‘rapped’, and kept recalling such ugly experiences. The emails are well dated.”
