Heritage Bank Suspends Endorsement With D’Banj Over Alleged Rape Scandal

Heritage Bank Suspends Endorsement With D’Banj Over Alleged Rape Scandal: Twitter has been agog with the news that Heritage Bank has suspended it’s endorsement with D’Banj.

This suspension is till further notice due to the recent rape allegations made against Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo popularly known as D’banj. Few weeks ago, a Nigerian model scout, Benjamin Ese had alleged that D’banj raped his female friend on December 31, 2018, at a hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Although D’Banj has denied these allegations via his Instagram handle and even sued for N100M compensation, this only seems to be the beginning of his troubles as Heritage Bank opts out of the recent deal they made with him.

Heritage Bank Suspends Endorsement With D'Banj Over Alleged Rape Scandal

It would be recalled that the lady in question, Seyitan Babatayo had accused the Koko Master of sexually assaulting her in December, 2018. The singer reacted first by petitioning the police to investigate the accusation, he then later served the alleged victim a letter, demanding N100 million as damages and an apology or face legal action.

Seyitan, in return, went on to also threaten legal actions against the singer except he tenders a public and private apology to her. Amid the controversy ensuing from the rape allegation, many Nigerians were outraged when Seyitan’s lawyers raised an alarm that she was arrested by police.

This happened on Tuesday on orders from D’banj’s team and that she was detained and denied access to friends, family and her lawyers. She was also allegedly forced into deleting her tweets where she narrated her supposed rape ordeal and recant her initial statement.

The development led to many citizens calling on brands associated with the singer to put an end to any existing deals, accusing him of intimidating and suppressing his accuser. Heritage Bank which is one of the brands linked with D’banj has now allegedly suspended his deal, until ‘he clears his name in the rape case.’

Although, the bank is yet to release a statement confirming or debunking the report.
