According to Dailypost , Chidinma was living with 21 year old, Umar Idris , a hairstylist and an aspiring musician she met when she ran to Lagos.

According to Chidinma, she said to Umar that she was 21. She added:


“He asked me my age. I didn’t want to tell him my real age. If I tell him my real age, he would see me as a little girl. I told him I was 21. I ran away from home out of frustration. I ran away from home last year. I was 17. .

Chidinma had just been paid N50,000 for a concert she did for a company, and with the money, she ran to Lagos and lodged at a hotel for a week and two days, it was within this period that she met Umar in saloon where she used to go for nail fixing. They fell in love and she moved in with him.

I was in Senior Secondary Class (SS2). I don’t know why the police arrested Idris. He hasn’t done anything wrong. He didn’t rape me. I gave myself to him. I knew what I was doing. He didn’t force or took advantage of me. In fact, he assisted me.” .

Chidinma said she would have gone back home, but she was waiting for her dad, who offended her by beating her for no just cause, to call her. The dad never did. It was only her mum who bothered to call and often sends her money. .

Umar, said:

“I love Chidinma and I don’t want to look elsewhere. She’s my first love and lover. I love her. I’m ready for marriage. I’m soon going into the music industry; I don’t want women to start chasing and disturbing me after I have made it in music. .

That’s why I want to marry early. If I get into music now, everyone will love me. I wouldn’t know which one has genuine love for me. So, I need to marry now. And Chidinma is my first love.”

Chidinma, who ran away from home 4 months ago, was already 3 months pregnant by the time she was arrested.

The police reveal that Umar may be charged with abduction and rape.

Do you think Umar should be arrested ?
