The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered a probe into Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj rape allegations by Miss Seyitan.

The order is contained in a letter with reference number CB.7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/VOl.484/801 signed by the Principal Staff Officer to the IG, DCP Idowu Owohunwa.

The letter was addressed to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Area 10, Garki, Abuja. The order for a probe is in response to a petition written to the IGP by Mr. Tommy Ojoge-Daniel, a lawyer to Seyitan Babatayo, who accused D’banj of raping her in 2018, was titled,.

‘Re: Petition Against (1) Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo (Aka D’Banj) for Rape Indecent Sexual Assault, Attempted Assault on Miss Seyitan Temidayo

It reads in part,

“I forward herewith a copy of the letter dated June 5, 2020, received from Ojoge, Omileye, and Partners on the above-underlined subject. I am to respectfully convey the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that you treat.

“Accept the assurances of my esteemed regards please.”

Seyitan came out publicly to state that she was allegedly raped by D’Banj in December 2018 in Glee Hotel after an all-white party.

The musician, however, denied the allegations and demanded compensation. 

The drama that has ensued from the rape allegation is threatening to leave the singer’s music legacy in shambles. D’banj is being accused of using the police to silence Seyitan Babatayo after she was arrested and detained for over 24 hours, allegedly on the instruction of the singer.

The incident has since spiralled out of control and sparked an outrage on social media, as D’banj has been the topic of discuss among many Nigerians.

Since Seyitan’s friend, Benjamin Ese, in a Twitter thread in early June told the story of how D’banj allegedly raped the lady at a hotel in December 2018, the singer has been under intense scrutiny and constantly receiving heavy backlash on social media. He was also accused of recanting the lady into  her statement while in police custody, making her delete some of her tweets about the alleged rape incident, and making new tweets that promotes D’banj’s yet to released music.

The truth will surely prevail and justice will be served.
