Stella Whyte, humanitarian and founder of Stella Whyte Foundation, who collaborated with Ibife Alufohai’s Miss Polo International Beauty Pageant, has dissociated herself from the pageant after news surfaced that the pageant organiser savagely assaulted the winner of the pageant, Nazneen, and other contestants.
In case you missed how the drama started: yesterday Instablog9ja published the videos of Ibife attacking Nazneen and other contestants in their hotel room at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja. Sources close to the situation told the blogger that trouble started after the contestants refused to be pimped out. They were asked to leave the hotel and when they refused, since that wasn’t the agreement, they were assaulted by Ibife.
“In the course of the altercation, Alufohai descended on the contestants, leaving many of them seriously bloodied,” wrote the blogger, adding, “The worst hit was the winner, Nazneen, an Indian lady who flew in for the pageant.”
