Seyitan who accused D’banj of rape was allegedly released by the Police yesterday and now allegedly being held by the singer’s manager in an attempt to coerce her into recanting her statement, social media user @AfricanCeleb claims.
Taking to Twitter, the user wrote;
So apparently Seyitan is being held by Dbanj’s manager somewhere on the island and she apparently did not go home from the police station. She is being coerced into recanting her statement. They’ve tried money, now it’s coercion. Is this your fave?!
Members of the NFF organised a meeting with her and the PPRO for this morning. When
called her to meet up as agreed, she heard someone shouting in the background asking Seyitan why she was still picking calls. Call was disconnected & she wasn’t reachable.
This is an SOS to @PoliceNG and a question to @iamdbanj where is Seyitan?
NFF = Nigerian Feminist Forum. The planned meeting was for Seyitan to state her case against Dbanj and press charges if possible. Where is she?
I for one will not be surprised if the young woman recants, this is not for the faint-hearted. I hope everyone now sees how the system is stacked against women who have been sexually assaulted.
