Zoro, however, has denied the allegation.

Zoro, in an Instagram post, shared a copy of the petition he addressed to the commissioner of police in Lagos State.



”Dear Fans,

Further to my last post, my team (legal and management) and I have reported the rape allegation leveled against me to the Nigeria Police.
I want to implore you my fans, friends and family to kindly disbelieve any lies from the unscrupulous lady while the Police continue their investigation on the matter.

I am more than certain that my innocence will vindicate me eventually.

Finally, it is important to fight against false rape accusation. The implication of false accusation on the ‘falsely accused’ is grievous and causes mental, and psychological damages which can affect business and personal relationships. It will also deter rape victims from speaking up because of disbelief and stigma.

Thank you very much for all your calls, messages and well wishes during this period.” he wrote
