D’banj’s Alleged Rape: Police Denies Detaining Accuser Seyitan
The said lady accused D’banj of raping her in hotel room back in 2018. The 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. She also said the singer and his team threatened and intimidated her. She made the accusation that she was made to delete some inditing posts from her Twitter handle and also promote the singer’s song under duress.
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.
They also claimed that 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.
Seyitan Babatayo is yet to respond to this new development. Recall that in her last statement, she noted that she was already traumatized by the incident and would need some time, adding that her team would be handling the case. Hopefully, she comes forth to clear the air.
