Lawyers demand arrest of popular Nigerian artiste D’Banj

The Coalition of Public Interests Lawyers and Advocates, COPA, has called for the arrest of popular Nigerian artiste Mr. Oladapo Oyebanjo, aka D’Banj, following an allegation of rape against him by Miss Seyitan Tayo, NAN reports.

Recall that Tayo had accused the singer of sexual assault which according to her, happened in 2018.

Following the development, the ‘Koko Master’ corona who denied the allegation describing it as “lie from the pit of hell” slammed Tayo with an N100 million defamation suit demanding an apology in four national dailies or risk legal action.

However, on Thursday there were varying reports of Seyitan allegedly arrested and threatened by Dbanj’s camp.

This did not go down well with some Nigerians who accused Dbanj of obstructing justice and intimidation on social media and equally prompted the Inspector general of Police l Mohammed Adamu, to order an investigation into the case.

Reacting, Mr. Patrick Odey, Director, Human Rights and Gender, at COPA in a statement released on Wednesday urged the Nigeria Police to allay the fears of ordinary Nigerians in its handling of rape matters in the country.

According to him, the coalition wondered why Tayo (the victim) should be detained instead of D’Banj, the accused.
