The Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu, has ordered a probe into the allegations of rape levelled against musician, Oladapo Oyebanjo, better known as D’Banj.
The order was in response to a petition written to the IGP by Mr. Tommy Ojoge-Daniel, a lawyer to Miss Seyitan Babatayo, who accused D’Banj of raping her in December 2018.
The lady claimed that D’banj had been using the Police to kill the case.
Some human rights activists have called on the police to ensure that justice is served; regardless of the musician’s status.
In reaction to the petition written by Ms Babatayo’s lawyer, Adamu has ordered a probe into the allegations of rape levelled against the music star.
This is contained in letter with reference number CB.7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/VOl.484/801 signed by the Principal Staff Officer to the IGP, DCP Idowu Owohunwa, and addressed to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Area 10, Garki, Abuja.
