The loudest Nigerian female voice on social media with the biggest platform has just helped to suppress a rape story and delete the story off her blog.

Linda Ikeji took down this rape story. Maybe the report was false. But some people are claiming that she was paid to take it down. I doubt that she collected any money to take down the story.
