The web and online burning issue of the Nigerian lady tourist who claims to have suffered sexual violence during her stay in Zanzibar, is taking new turn, with emerging reports to the effect that the victim could actually be a scammer.
That aside, the Chairperson of the African Tourism Board (ATB), Cuthbert Ncube is reported to be seeking audience with authorities in Zanzibar to address the matter.
Ncube is also asking around for anybody who can produce all the necessary information on Zainab Oladehinde, the Nigerian belle who claims to have suffered sexual harassment in the isles, during her stay at the Warere Beach Hotel Sometimes in April, last year.
The African Tourism Board official contacted the African Sports Tourism Week platform twice, seeking to communicate with anybody who knows something about Zainab.
Ncube, according to ASTW, expressed interest to address the issue with what he described to be the ‘Mayor of Zanzibar,’ though the isles may not have such title.
From Russia with testimony?
But a man confessing to be Russian tourist, who identified himself as ‘Alex’ is also circulating a video online, affirming that, the Nigerian girl did indeed rush into his room for refuge, after the alleged ordeal, that early morning of 18 April, 2021.
Alex and his partner were reportedly, lodging at the Warere Beach Hotel on the day that Zainab claims to have been attacked sexually.
