The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has ordered a probe into the rape allegation levelled against music star, Dapo Oyebanjo also known as Dbanj by Seyitan Babatayo.
Adamu’s letter with reference number CB.7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/VOl.484/801 was signed by his Principal Staff Officer, DCP Idowu Owohunwa.
In a letter addressed to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Area 10, Garki, Abuja, the IG requested that the petition be treated accordingly.
The letter was in response to a petition written by Mr. Tommy Ojoge-Daniel, a lawyer to Miss Seyitan Babatayo, who has accused D’Banj of raping her in a Lagos hotel in December 2018.
It read in part, “I forward herewith copy of letter dated June 5, 2020 received from Ojoge, Omileye and Partners on the above underlined subject. I am to respectfully convey the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that you treat.
“Accept the assurances of my esteemed regards please.”
It would be recalled that Miss Babatayo’s friend, Benjamin Ese, alleged that Dbanj raped his friend (Seyitan) on December 31, 2018, at Glee hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos.
