I Wholly Sympathise With Stephanie Okereke During This Harrowing Experience, Her Brother Committed A Despicable And Heinous Crime – Charles Novia

Following actress Stephanie Okereke-Linus statement about her brother's rape allegation (read here), Charles Novia has wriiten a short piece commending her bravery. Read Mr Novia's note below...
Stephanie Linus ( nee Okereke) a Nollywood actress recently put out a reproduced statement about a rape case involving her brother, Daniel Okereke , who is accused of raping a Unilag undergraduate and currently has a criminal case against him with the Police in Lagos.

Reading the statement, I could not help but feel pity and admiration for Stephanie. Indeed, it is a harrowing experience to have a family member accused of such a despicable and heinous crime and it is even more traumatic to be linked with the accused as if by being related by blood, she is culpable too in the crime. Using recent templates in entertainment, one should ask if Brandy Norwood was culpable when Ray J leaked the sex videos of Kim Kardashian a few years ago? Or some other examples I cannot remember at present?

My Brother Raped A Woman Not Me, Nigerian Press Should Stop Accusing Me Because Its Unethical And Extremely Hurtful- Actress Stephanie Linus Laments

So few days ago, Stephanie's brother Daniel Okereke was arrested for raping a student and bloggers are milking the news, using Stephanie's photos to write about the rape.

Now her manager has sent out emails to bloggers, distancing herself from the family citing that it is unethical and extremely hurtful for them to associate her with the Okereke's family because she is now a married woman.

I am distraught and devastated to hear of the recent allegation of rape brought against a relative of mine, Daniel Okereke (my brother). While it is a very difficult time for me, and my family; I feel the need to make clear my position, lest there be any doubt. Rape is rape, regardless of who the face of the accused is. Indeed, the irony is not lost on me. I have spent my lifelong career advocating and living my conviction that women around the world should be able to live free of violence, sexual harassment or any form of abuse against their persons.
