Ms Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused D’banj of raping her, has formally made a criminal complaint of rape against the musician.
“Yesterday, Monday the 22nd of June, 2020, I Ms Seyitan Babatayo, formally made a criminal complaint of rape by Mr Oladape Daniel Oyebanjo popularly known as a D’banj at the Gender Desk of the Nigeria Police Force Lagos Police Command Headquarters, Ikeja Lagos,” Seyitan said in a statement released by Stand To End Rape (S.T.E.R) — a non-profit organisation geared towards helping rape victims.
On June 3, 2020, Seyitan took to Twitter to give a detailed account of how she was raped by D’banj in December 2018 in a hotel room.
D’banj, however, denied the accusation and responded with a legal document detailing a defamation suit against Seyitan which demanded a public apology, N100 million in damages amongst a host of other requests.
Following this, journalist and activist Kiki Mordi reported that Seyitan had been arrested by the Police for defamation.
The statement by Seyitan, however, gives a detailed timeline of everything that happened since she accused D’banj of raping her.
She indicated that she was arrested on June 16, 2020, by four policemen at her apartment without a warrant.
