The Nigeria police have denied arresting and detaining Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused D’banj of raping her at an hotel room in 2018.
Recall that news broke on June 18 that Seyitan was arrested and detained by Police
operatives at Ikeja in Lagos for 24 hours. She was allegedly also denied access to her legal team.
Refuting the claims, a police source who spoke with Vanguard, said Seyitan was only
invited to give her written statement and be interrogated. Adding that, there may have
been a mix up by her legal representative.
The source revealed that both the singer and accuser were invited to the Force Criminal
Investigations Department, Abuja, to give written statements and for interrogation.
But on three separate occasions, Seyitan didn’t show up, which prompted the Force CID
to dispatch officers to Lagos to invite her for her written statement and interrogation on the alleged rape.
D’Banj have been trending on social media ever since the case was made public as some
fans went as far as attacking him for allegedly pressurising Seyitan into denying that she was arrested.
Seyitan some days ago also released her official statement on the case as she revealed
how she was arrested and detained as well as being treated like a criminal for an offence she
did not commit.
All fingers are crossed as we awaits the final judgement on the rape case that have cast
some doubt over D’Banj’s integrity and this has been allegedly cost him his endorsement with Heritage Bank.
