The Nigeria Police has quizzed Singer, Dapo Oyebanjo alias D’banj in respect of the rape allegation levelled against him. He was invited by the Force to Abuja for the matter.
Seyitan Babatayo had alleged earlier in June 2020, that she was raped by the music star back in 2018.
The singer, according to reports, was grilled by an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Adaku Anya, at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Garki, Abuja.
Revealed a top police source: “D’Banj has been questioned twice at the FCID, Abuja. He was questioned last week and also this week. We will leave no stone unturned as we investigate the matter”.
Babatayo, reports also revealed, was invited to write a statement but couldn’t make it because she had no means of travelling to Abuja but opted to visit a police unit in Lagos.
Babatayo, it will be recalled, had come out to accuse the singer of raping her in 2018, while her friend, Benjamin Ese, alleged that D’banj raped his friend (Seyitan) on December 31, 2018, at Glee Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos.
The music act in his defense denied raping Babatayo, and went ahead to demanded a public apology and N100M compensation.
The matter took another turn on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, when Babatayo was reportedly arrested by policemen from Sodipo Command, Ikeja.
Babatayo in a press statement on Wednesday, June 24, 2020, narrated all that transpired during her arrest, further revealing that she had officially filed a criminal complaint against the artiste.
