Seyitan Babatayo, a lady, who accused Nigerian musician, Oladapo Oyebanjo widely known as D’Banj, of rape has written a letter to the police withdrawing her petition. Earlier in June, Seyitan had accused D’banj of raping her in a hotel on December 30, 2018. The statement went so:
“We hereby officially notify you of our client’s intention to withdraw and discontinue her petition against Mr Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo aka D’Banj for personal reasons. Our client further humbly applies that to the investigation and all other action that is currently being carried out by the police with respect to the statement,” the letter partly posted on Twitter by blogger, Kemi Olunloyo.
In his response to the letter, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Admin), Umar Sanda, said the investigation had been discontinued due to lack of evidence.
