Nigerian music star, Dapo Oyebanjo also known as D’banj has been interrogated by the Nigeria Police Force over the rape allegation levelled against him. The singer was invited to Abuja by the police to answer questions over the rape allegation levelled against him.
Seyitan Babatayo had revealed earlier in June 2020, that she was raped by the music star back in 2018.
According to PUNCH, the singer was grilled by an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Adaku Anya, at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Garki, Abuja.
“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,” a top police source revealed.
The report also says Babatayo was invited to write a statement but couldn’t make it because she had no means of travelling to Abuja and opted to visit a police unit in Lagos.
It would be recalled that Babatayo had come out to accuse the singer of raping her in 2018.
The music star in his defense denied raping Babatayo and even 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 released a press statement on Wednesday, June 24, 2020, where she narrated all that transpired during her arrest.
In the statement, she revealed that she has officially filed a criminal complaint against the music star.
