Seyitan Babatayo has released an official statement addressing an earlier publication of Stand To End Rape (STER) regarding activist Segun Awosanya aka Segalink's involvement in the alleged rape case.

Shortly after STER released a statement alleging that activist Segun Awosanya popularly known as Segalink helped in ‘private settlement’ that resulted in Seyitan withdrawing her petition.

However, Seyitan in a two-page statement has addressed this allegation, giving further clarification about the alleged rape case and the duties of those involved. She stated;

I, Seyitan Babatayo, do hereby resolve to put out this statement with respect to Stand To End Rape (STER)’s publication on my rape case in the interest of posterity and good conscience as follows, that;

I appreciate the entirety, and in this regard, the public-spirited support of STER and every other civil society organization during the heat of my travail, which is now in the public domain.

I want to firmly state that through out the said period, and until today, I have ensured that STER is aware and well briefed of every single action I take.

Seyitan revealed that herself and family members contacted Segalink to facilitate a meeting with D’banj’s team for a resolution of the issue as she did not intend to continue with the case. According to the lady, she was contacted by the founder of STER, Ayodeji Osowobi and had resolved to make a statement to close the rape.

She requested to read the proposed statement but upon going through it, she called the attention of Ayodeji Osowobi to a part that alleged that Segalink called for the meeting with a view to hinder justice and that statement was grossly incorrect, pointing out to Osowobi that it was the sole decision of herself and family to resolve the matter, seeking the intervention of Segalink.

She apologized to Segalink for any damage the statement made by STER may have caused, appealing to the NGO to make corrections.
