Rape allegation: No evidence against D’banj - Police
The Nigeria Police have cleared popular Nigerian singer and songwriter D’banj, of the rape allegations levelled against him by a twitter user Miss Seyitan Babatayo. D’banj had claimed that there was no truth in the allegation and blamed it on the handiwork of his enemies who he alleged were out to destroy his hard-earned reputation. However, the report by the police investigation unit did not find any substantial evidence to prove that D’banj committed the act and that Babatayo had withdrawn the petition filed against D’banj. “The complainant alleged that D’banj had sex with her against her wish but in view of the foregoing facts, the investigation was discontinued as there was no substantial evidence to prove the allegation of rape against the suspect,” the report read in parts. He described the allegation as deliberate and mischievous falsehood intended to malign his person and reputation.
