Seyitan Babatayo, who accused musician, Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj, of rape has written a letter to the police withdrawing her petition.
Seyitan had in a letter addressed to the Inspector-General of Police through her lawyer, Olamide Omileye, withdrawn from the case for personal reasons.
The letter stated that “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.”
The Deputy Commissioner of Police (Admin), Umar Sanda in his response, stated that investigation had discontinued due to lack of evidence.
Human rights group, Stand To End Rape Initiative popularly known as STER, said Seyitan decided to end the case without receiving any monetary compensation.
You will recall that Seyitan had accused D’Banj of raping her in an hotel in December 2018,
D’banj had denied raping her and consequently sued her, stating that the allegation had caused him untold embarrassment and psychological trauma.
