Singer, D’banj (real name Capo Oyebanjo) has slammed a =N= 1.5 billion suit on his rape accuser, Seyitan Babatayo.
A letter released through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome Chambers, stated that Babatayo had been asked to pay D’banj N1.5B.
According to the letter, N1 billion is being demanded in damages “over the untold embarrassment, derision, public ridicule, odium, obloquy, marital disharmony, mental agony and psychological trauma which the Defendants’ tweets and publication have caused the claimant”, while N500M will be for “aggravated, punitive, and exemplary damages”.

The suit also demanded that Seyitan writes D’banj “a letter of unreserved apology for the offensive tweets and posts”.
This follows the complaint Babatayo had filed against the music act where she accused him of arresting and holding her captive.
Ms Babatayo on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, first accused D’banj of raping her in a hotel room in December 2018.
D’banj had denied the accusation and demanded apology and N100M in damages while there were reports that he used the police to try and bully Babatayo.
