The Nigerian police has denied detaining Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused singer, D’banj, of rape.
Vanguard reported that a Police source said D’banj reported on three separate occasions at FCID for interrogation and statement, while Seyitan repeatedly refused to show up. Claims that her non-appearance led to the prompt dispatch of officers by the Force CID to Lagos, to invite her for written statement and interrogation on the alleged rape incident.
According to the police source, there might be a mix up by the legal representative of Seyitan over claims of being arrested and detained by Police operatives at Ikeja in Lagos for 24 hours. Insists that Seyitan was only invited to give her written statement and also to be interrogated as it was necessary for her to come forward to give a statement to back up her accusation.
