Nigerian entertainer, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo popularly known as D’banj has asked SegaLinks to say the truth and call out activists, Kiki Mordi, Chioma Agwuegbo and Ayodeji Osowobi for misleading the public regarding his rape allegation by Seyitan.

D’banj reacted to a post by Sega Links on social media where he urged that that activists wills of Kiki Mordi, Chioma Agwuegbo and Ayodeji Osowobi in helping people in need of urgent intervention should not be discouraged despite how the Seyitan and D’banj rape allegations have panned out.

SegaLinks while clarifying the rumours surrounding the Seyitan and D’banj rape case had written;

We cannot be seen to discourage the activist wills of @kikimordi
@ChiomaChuka and @AyodejiOsowobi (of STER) et al from helping people in need of urgent intervention – but observing what has occurred in this case – .and the omission of the engagement with NAPTIP – the strongest call for a total revamp of SARC processes In Nigeria is imminent. Public trial by media really shouldn’t be Nigeria’s ONLY pivot of investigation and relief.

 

D’banj while reacting to SegaLinks posts, claimed the activists lied and went about things the wrong way, misleading the public for International NGO funding.
