“D’banj Hasn’t Dropped 1.5bn Lawsuit Against Seyitan – Lawyer

Mike Ozekhome (SAN), the lawyer to Nigerian popular musician, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo also known as D’banj, has said the singer is forging ahead with the N1.5bn libel suit filed against Seyitan Babatayo.

This is coming after the Nigerian Police Force discontinued investigation, saying they were unable to establish a case of rape brought by Seyitan Babatayo against the musician.

Ms Babatayo earlier wrote in a letter dated July 17 that she was withdrawing from the case for personal reasons.

The letter was addressed to the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu through her lawyer Olamide Omileye.

Babatayo’s letter read: “We hereby officially notify you of our client’s intention to withdraw and discontinue her petition against Mr. Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo aka D’Banj for personal reasons. Our client further humbly applies that the investigation and all other action that is currently being carried out by the police with respect to the statement.”

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Admin) Umar Sanda in response said the police had also discontinued investigation, saying they were unable to establish a case of rape against the musician born Oladapo Oyebanjo.

A human rights group Stand To End Rape Initiative (STER) said Seyitan withdrew the case without receiving any monetary compensation.
