Popular blogger, Linda Ikeji, has fired her Head of Programmes at Linda Ikeji TV after a model accused him of raping her.
Emilia Samuel claimed that Theo Ukpaa who is now married had forced himself on her when she was 16.
In a statement, Linda said she has terminated his appointment.
“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. Thank you,” she wrote.
Emilia Samuel had in a post on Instagram accused Ukpaa of rape.
She also revealed she was raped twice by him. Since then, other ladies have also alleged he has tried to prey on them.
