TheCable Lifestyle had reported how Justin UG, who is an Imo state-born entertainer, forex trader, and fashion entrepreneur, was called out on Twitter by a young lady who accused him of statutory rape that happened in 2016.

In a text from the alleged victim, she claimed Justin coerced girls and make them “do things” with him. She also alleged that the artist had made out with her after a party in 2016 when she was 14, claiming he was 16 at the time.

Justin took to his Twitter handle on Tuesday to present the findings of his team as regards the assault allegation.

He also denied ever being present at the club wherein the yet-to-be-identified accuser had claimed they initially met.

“My team and I have worked endlessly to gather more information on this alleged incident. I have been in contact with Didun Johnson (@mamiwaterr on Twitter) who is responsible for the publication of the allegations,” he wrote.

“I have included below all conversations between my team and Didun so that the public is aware that no form of coercion, bribery, or intimidation was involved in our exchanges with her, or the accuser.

“On Monday, December 28th, after many efforts to get in contact with the accuser, Didun was successfully able to reach the accuser. Didun Johnson made efforts to seek more information and proof from her initial source.

“Our initial request to the accuser was to provide us with screen recordings of the alleged conversation that was publicized as evidence of the allegation. She refused to because she claimed to have ‘unsaved’ the messages.

“The accuser then shared, with Didun Johnson, the flyer of the event (#classified) that she attended on Saturday, 30th of July 2016. This was the event where she alleged that I statutory-raped her and claimed we had anal sex.”

Justin, who shared a photo of his passport, said he had jetted out of Nigeria to the US for his first year of tertiary education at Georgia Southern University — a day before the same date when he was said to have raped the lady.

“The accuser says that I statutory raped her on Saturday, 30th of July 2016 at a party in Jabi (which she then changed and claimed was in Sun City),” the singer said, hinting that more evidence would be presented in court.

“On Friday, 29th of July 2016, I flew out of Nigeria to the US to begin my first year of tertiary education at Georgia Southern University. I am able to prove I was not at this party that the accuser claims I had anal sex with her.

“I have attached below a copy of my passport that shows my stamp of departure from Abuja on the 29th of July, and my arrival in the United States on the 30th of July.

“In addition, I was contacted by an individual who provided more information on the intentions of persons to fabricate this story against me.

“More information regarding the discrepancies of the accuser’s claim, along with details that prove that I did not engage in the alleged Snapchat conversation with the accuser has been uncovered.

“I shall be pursuing this matter legally, and for this reason, I am unable to share all of the details of the evidence we have available, including the information on the suspect. I’m yet to understand why anyone will do this to me, but I am very thankful that the truth has been uncovered.”
