The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the probe of the policemen who allegedly arrested D’banj’s rape accuser, Seyitan Babatayo.

The IGP gave the order in a letter – sequel to a petition written by Seyitan’s lawyer, Ojoge, Omileye and Partners – addressed to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Garki.

It was also alleged that Seyitan was denied access to her phone and her lawyers and she was subjected to intimidation and psychological torture by the policemen.

The petition read in part, “On Tuesday, June 16, 2020, our client was picked up alongside a friend, Favour, at her residence in Lagos by the officers of the Ikeja IGP IRT. The arrest was without any warrant and neither our client nor her friend, Favour, was informed of the reasons for their arrest.

“According to our client, she was told to write a statement denying ever meeting with Mr. Oyebanjo (D’Banj) and to also state that she lied against the person of Mr. Oyebanjo. In actual fact, our client was about to write the statement which she believed would be a basis for her release when the counsel came in and stopped her from writing such a statement.
