Anambra sex scandal: Group petitions NAPTIP, wants pageant banned

The Civil Rights Realisation and Advancement Network, a coalition of human rights lawyers, on Saturday asked the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons to investigate a suspected case of sexual exploitation and trafficking surrounding the Miss Anambra Beauty Pageant.

Parts of the petition read, “Recent happenings which led to the online circulation of nude pictures and video of the said Miss Anambra pageant queen 2015, Miss Chidimma Okeke, have shown prima facie that the organisers of the pageant are using the avenue to sexually exploit young innocent girls of South East Nigeria.

“The purpose for which the state government through one of it’s parastatals, the Anambra State Broadcasting Service, established the pageant competition has been defeated because it could no longer be said that the pageant is promoting morality, culture of the people or empowering the female youths of this zone.
