In a letter addressed to the Inspector-General of Police via her lawyer, Olamide Omileye, said she was withdrawing from the case for personal reasons. See photo;

Our client further humbly applies that the investigation and all other action that is currently being carried out by the police with respect to the statement.”
Responding to the letter, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Admin), Umar Sanda, said” investigation had discontinued due to lack of evidence.”
The letter posted on Twitter by blogger, Kemi Olunloyo, read in part, “In view of the foregoing facts, investigation was discontinued as no substantial evidence to prove the allegation of rape against the suspect.”
