RAPE ALLEGATION!!! IGP Orders The Investigation Of Police Officers Who Allegedly Arrested Miss Seyitan, Dbanj's Accuser


Jun. 30, 2020

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the investigation of the police officers who probe allegedly arrested Miss Seyitan Babatayo who accused musician D’Banj of rape. The IGP gave the order in a letter titled, ‘Re: Petition Against Inspector Abraham, Supol Ugowe and the Entire Police Officers Team at Ikeja, Lagos Division of the Inspector General of Police’ signed by his Principal Staff Officer, DCP Idowu Owohunwa on June 25, 2020.
The letter, which was addressed to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Garki, read in part, “I forward forthwith a copy of a letter dated June 18, 2020, with its attachment received from Ojoge, Omileye, and Partners on the above subject. “I am to respectfully convey the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that you deal.”
According to reports, the IG's letter was in response to a petition written by Miss Seyitan's lawyer, Ogoje, Omileye and Partners submitted sometime, last week.
The petition read in part, “On Tuesday, June 16, 2020, our client was picked up alongside a friend, Favour, at her residence in Lagos by the officers of the Ikeja IGP IRT. The arrest was without any warrant and neither our client nor her friend, Favour, was informed of the reasons for their arrest.
“According to our client, she was told to write a statement denying ever meeting with Mr. Oyebanjo (D’Banj) and to also state that she lied against the person of Mr. Oyebanjo. In actual fact, our client was about to write the statement which she believed would be a basis for her release when the counsel came in and stopped her from writing such a statement."
