“On June 17, 2020, with various efforts, I was released from custody after being made to sign a gag order by the police and D’banj’s team, and could only post on social media what had been approved by D’banj’s team. I spent the night in a location of D’banj’s team’s choosing, which was not made known to the public.

“On June 18, 2020, I was isolated from my family, coerced, pressured and intimidated in person by D’banj and his team to retract all statements and to announce that my testimony was a publicity stunt.

“Thanks to my friend, thanks to the Executive Director of Stand To End Rape Initiative and other activists who swung into action, and tracked me to the location where I was being held by D’banj and his team, using satellite mapping. I was immediately removed from the environment and taken to a safe place where I was provided with immediate support.”

Seyitan said since her release, D’banj has been boasting that nothing would happen to him because of his celebrity status.
