BBC Africa Eye Reporter Kiki Mordi has been accused of being part of a group which allegedly sent threats to Seyitan Babatayo who accused singer D’banj of rape.

An activist Segun Awosanya popularly known on Twitter as Segalink took to the platform on Saturday to accuse Ms Mordi of threatening Ms Babatayo and himself.

“Kiki Mordi is playing the role of the hitman under the auspices of the Coven sending threats to Seyitan and myself. We have it all on record,” he wrote.

“It will end in premium tears for her & their coven and she will be revealed for the monster that she’s become on this agenda. #EndRape.”

In response, Mordi said Mr Awosanya knew what to do if she committed a crime against him.

“Guys I’m blocked by Sega I definitely can’t see the tantrums he’s throwing. I wish him peace. In the meantime he has my number and email and if I have committed a crime against him surely a man like Sega would know what to do,” she wrote.

“In case you’re wondering what my response to anything he’s saying is; if you didn’t hear from me or a statement signed by me, it’s not my truth.”

Babatayo who accused D’banj of raping her in Glee Hotel, Lagos, sometime in December 2018 has written to the police withdrawing her petition.

She said in a letter dated July 17 that she was withdrawing from the case for personal reasons.

D’banj’s lawyer Mike Ozekhome told The Punch that his client was moving on with his N1.5 billion suit against Babatayo, saying the allegation had caused him mental agony, ridicule, embarrassment and marital disharmony.
