Nigerians on micro-blogging site, Twitter, on Thursday, February 7, blasted foremost Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji for allegedly pulling down a rape case story involving the son of a Lagos hotelier and his friend.
The son of the owner of the Dallankester Hotels, Don-Chima George, and his friend, Rasaq Oke, was arrested by operatives of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly drugging and raping a 23-year-old lady in the Lekki Phase 1 area of the state.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said in a statement, on Tuesday, that George and Oke allegedly laced the victim’s drink with a substance that made her weak and took her to the hotel where she was repeatedly raped.
However, many were surprised as they couldn’t find the story on Linda’s blog on Thursday. The development led to anger as they stormed her comment section and Twitter to condemn the act.
Some accused her of receiving bribe from George’s father. Read different comments below:
Linda Ikeji is just a hypocritical feminist . She reported that story about the rape case and later deleted it. A lady with zero integrity, She’s definitely for the money. pic.twitter.com/VUBj637aje

@Lindaikeji how much will it cost me to buy the rest of your decency? Seeing as just the right amount of money can buy your humanity. I wonder what you’re teaching your son 🤷🏾♀️

So Linda Ikeji took down the story, a rape story…
I really want to know how much they paid Linda Ikeji to take down that post.
How much does her conscience and empathy cost?

Update: Linda Ikeji took down the Ricco and Don Chima’s rape story off her website ( she posted it first btw) – so guess what money is going to do ? Get them out.
As long as the Nigerian system is thrashy, women would never get a fair chance.

So Linda Ikeji can actually be asked to take down a story and she went on and actually removed the rape story?
But some of her intellectually challenged fans will converge and form voltron for her and remind you that she has money and we don’t.
A Poverty mentality is a disease.

Linda Ikeji is an idiot. A big colossal waste of space idiot. These are facts. Let’s us move on from that vermin please.

Linda Ikeji that they will be begging to bring down stories
I remember the one she posted of a guy that died, his family had not heard, they kept begging her to bring it down she didn’t
And that’s just one of several cases
So she can now bring down this rapist story… Trash

Some foolish girls are itching to look for a way to blame this Linda Ikeji thing on men. Let me help you “it’s probably a man that convinced Linda to take the money and delete the post, men are trash”.

The people who report Rape Accusations here on the TL have been Vindicated today. The Police saw a rape video & released the Rapists. Linda Ikeji that will rather die than delete stories deleted it. Video deleted, Rapists Free’d, The rape victim suffers double tragedy 🤦♂️😡

Linda Ikeji taking down the rape video off her site shows how these rich folks don’t rate us at all. It is clear that Linda Ikeji’s integrity revolves around how much you can pay her. She lacks a stance for justice. That’s why she keeps trending for the wrong reasons 😐
