Police question D’banj over rape allegation

The police have interrogated singer, D’banj, over the allegation that he raped a woman named Seyitan Babatoyo, in December 2018, the Punch Newspapers has claimed.

According to the paper, the 40-year-old singer maintained his innocence when he was questioned 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 police source told the paper.

The source also claimed that Babatayo was also invited to give a statement at the same station but was allowed to submit her statement in Lagos after pleading that she could not afford to travel to Abuja.

This comes after a statement was released on her behalf on Wednesday, insisting that she was indeed unlawfully detained by the police and D’banj and coerced into withdrawing her allegation.

D’banj, however, on Monday maintained that he is innocent until proven guilty.

“Innocent until proven guilty…., Stop social media trial #SAY no to rape and human rights violation,” he captioned an Instagram video of himself singing and dancing.
