Twitter Nigeria was sent into another early morning frenzy on Monday following a thread from Anthony Okafor @ynotes_ claiming Cynthia Ugwudike (@cynnerr) who accused him of attempting to rape her friend Anita Kalu (@_Eggovin) had admitted that she lied.
Perhaps you have been wondering why ‘Cynthia’, ‘Tega’, ‘Anita’, ‘She’s 19’ all made Twitter trends on Monday, look no further, it is over an accusation of attempted rape that has turned out to be false.
In a series of tweets on September 4 Cynthia had alleged that Anthony attempted to rape her friend Anita during a visit to his house after going out together on a date.
Anthony wasn’t going to let the allegations fly, he slammed the ladies with a lawsuit demanding an apology and asking them to cease and desist from publishing further ‘defamatory’ post against him on social media and any other platform.
He, however, shared a series of secretly recorded audio from their meeting where they hope to reach an agreement to settle out of court.
Since he shared the audio on Sunday night, the ladies have locked their Twitter accounts following the series of reactions generated by the twist to their accusation.
While a tiny minority of Twitter users are making excuses for Cynthia’s actions because of her age as she is said to be 19 years old, other social media users are calling on Anthony to proceed with the court action so as to serve as a deterrent to others who falsely accuse people of crime not committed.
One of their feminist friends, Tega, who was also said to be at the meeting has been lambasted by Twitter users for showing no remorse for the humiliation Anthony suffered when he was falsely accused by the ladies.
A Twitter user wrote:
“Do you know how many lives have been ruined because they were wrongly accused of rape? Like how do you sleep at night knowing someone is in jail because your stupid lies? If Cynthia is found guilty, she should be jailed to serve as a deterrent to others not to use Rape for clout.”
Ogbuefi Okafor tweeted:
“People are really trying to defend what Cynthia did based on her age, saying she’s 19. Just so you know,19 is an adult and can serve jail term. This and many more is the reason I love older women.”
Another Twitter user wrote:
She’s 19 ? Exactly why she should quickly go to jail, do a couple years and come out.. She can even still do 10 years and still make it in time for NYSC… Elewe-eran prison in Abeokuta preferably cos Cynthia and the Tega babes are Goats.
See some of the reactions:
Why’s the heat mostly on Cynthia? She did what she thought was right. She was acting based on the account of Anita. Why is Anita not being held to account?
This is the downside of ‘believe all women’. Where is the woman that lied?

Apparently, this Tega lady does not see anything wrong in falsely accusing someone of rape.
Just a decade or two in jail will change her orientation, I’m sure of that. pic.twitter.com/oX0SRnUf4w

While Cynthia and Anita have locked their pages, here are some tweets from Tega.
They see nothing too bad in false rape claims.
People who have a special place in hell.

I’m seeing people say “mind who you have sex with” “stop having sex with childish people” as if CHILDISHNESS is written with ink on someone’s forehead.
Just pray that God remove people as childish and stupid as Cynthia, Anita and tega from your path

Hello Females, please have this talk with your ’baby girls’.
Lying about rape and assault for whatever reason is not a narrative we are about to start nor support.
Call your fellow ’Queens’ out on their bullshit.
Don’t be a CYNTHIA or a TEGA, Do right by our men.
— SOUTHEAST MEDIA GIRL (@jasmine_naza) October 14, 2019
I swear,what Anita, Cynthia & tega have just done will make it more difficult for genuine rape victims to be taken seriously.

Dear @ynotes_ I pray God gives you the strength but please don’t settle with either Anita Cynthia or Tega. An example needs to be made that posting fake rape stories for cheap internet clout is unacceptable. 🤝

Cynthia, Tega and Anita have really set women back by eons.
This is literally all the ammunition rape apologists need to foot their agenda. Women who’ve actually been assaulted will suffer this for years to come. For retweets? Vengeance? It fucking evades me.

Rape and false accusation of rape is most likely same, you know why? Both can lead to depression and even suicide.
We have to be careful to never be in Cynthia, Ynotes, Anita, Tega and others kinda story.
Everyone’s heart isn’t same as yours, some people are destructive!
— 👑 OLUWAFIFUNMI 🎨🇳🇬 (@FifunmiRexx) October 14, 2019
So Cynthia & Tega will choose to end up in prison rather than apologize and retract the statement they made cause they afraid of Twitter backlash ! damaged someone’s life and you’re more concerned bout the insults you’ll receive @ynotes_ Drag them fam till you get your Justice

When Davido said “Call Anita oh, tell am make she come dey go far away, far away Me I no dey do again…” I didn’t know what he meant till now.
Anita, Tega and Cynthia I pray you all bag jail terms so other useless girls like you guys will learn.

Regardless of your gender, you should be pissed at these whole accusations of Ynotes, Cynthia and Tega.
More false Rape accusations waters down the credibility of actual rape victims, giving actual rapists room to hide.
Then rape accusation also becomes a weapon for some.
— The Kingmaker🦉 (@SmithVinci) October 13, 2019
That Tega babe is a cold ass bitch, you fucking falsely accused someone of raping you and you are so dismissive and rude about how he felt about being tagged a rapist on the internet? No remorse whatsoever over what your false accusations have made him lose? Ahhh!!
— The Papi (@tawah89) October 13, 2019
Emmett was killed at 14..he was falsely accused.
Banks was thrown in jail at 17..he was falsely accused.
Counts spent 26 years in jail..he was falsely accused.
False rape accusations ruin lives & invalidates the experiences of real victims.
Cynthia should be in court.

Covid-19: US records 2,000 deaths in 24 hours as cases pass 502,000
The United States has reported 2,108 coronavirus deaths in 24 hours, the highest daily increase in the country since the outbreak began, pushing the total US death toll to 18,777 on the one-month anniversary of the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.
Meanwhile, the number of confirmed cases in the US topped 502,000 on Saturday, as the worldwide death toll surpassed 102,000.
The US is soon expected to overtake Italy in the grim position as the country with the highest number of fatalities. To date, Italy has registered at least 18,800 deaths.
With the number of infections worldwide now close to 1.7 million, including more than 376,000 recovered patients, the WHO has urged caution to countries considering easing restrictions put in place to stem the outbreak.
“The way down could be as dangerous as the way up if not managed properly,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
Ondo civil servant smuggles wife into service, places her on grade level 14
A civil servant in Ondo State has been arrested for allegedly smuggling his wife into the Ondo State Civil Service and placing her on grade level 14 and she had been collecting salaries.
The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on Special Duties, Dr Doyin Odebowale, who confirmed the arrest, said the suspect was caught as a result of the reform carried out by the state’s Head of Service, Mr Alex Aragbaye.
Odebowale did not, however, state how long the woman had been collecting salaries.
He added that other suspects were arrested for alleged involvement in various corrupt practices.
“We were able to discover that certain elements, whose names appear on the staff list, were never employed. A particular man employed his wife and placed her on grade level 14. She never attended an interview and she has been collecting salaries.
The governor’s aide stated that all the indicted civil servants had already been suspended, adding that they would face disciplinary actions.
How my wife and I were humiliated, manhandled by Nigeria Police at Moore Police Station Ile Ife By Dr Abiodun Olabanjo
My wife and l are Medical Doctors practising in Ile Ife Osun state. While my wife works with OSHMB. I have a private hospital in Ile Ife. l had to drive my wife to her place of work this morning with the private hospital ambulance (Name of the hospital well written on the ambulance with Doctors stickers on the windscreen). We had passed through several police barricades on the way.
On getting to one of the barricades in front of Moore Police station, we stopped and they asked for our mission on the road, despite the lockdown declared by the Government, and we patiently introduced ourselves and told them where we work and the reason why I had to drive my wife to her place of work and also informed them that I would be coming back soon as I had a patient that was been prepared for surgery before I left the hospital.
To my surprise on my way back from State Hospital Oke Ogbo Ile Ife where my wife works unlike other checkpoints where we had passed, where they didn’t need to stop us again for questioning on seeing the same hospital ambulance, the police at the barricade in front of Moore decided to stop us again and we did.
They asked me again for my identity and I explained to them but they insisted on parking the ambulance despite all explanation. After some persuasion one of the police personnel ordered the barricade to be removed, a car in the front and we followed but as we drove on we heard a loud bang at the back of the ambulance with someone in boy scout uniform calling other policeman claiming we broke through their barricade.
We, therefore, decided to stop but before I could open the car door to come down they started hitting me from the car, slapping and dragging me out of the car saying we wanted to hit one of them.
I was kicked several times by these about 30/50 people who were not even aware of what transpired. On citing this my wife quickly came down to stop the one slapping and hitting me but they didn’t even allow her they started beaten and dragging her too to the police station.
We were then ordered to be locked up in the cell by the Area Commander without any interrogation.
Instead, they collected all our four phones our shoes and other personal belongings including the car key without allowing us to make any form of communication either to our people nor our lawyer.
It was one of our patients who witnessed the event that quickly reported the case at our hospital from where our lawyer was contacted.
It was our lawyer in company of the patient that was waiting for emergency caesarian section that came to bail us at the police station. As we speak now, we were told they threatened to charge us to court tomorrow for trial even without investigation calling us all sorts of names and concorted lot of lies against us.
Our questions are….. Are Doctors not permitted to go to their places of work during this lockdown? Is the hospital ambulance not permitted to move during lockdown?
Was it normal for the police officer to collect all our phones without allowing us to communicate either with our people or our lawyer……. Our phones were ringing several times and they were dancing and singing to the tunes despite telling them that someone was in distress. It is our desire to register our displeasure to the whole nation…….
