Nigerians have thrown their weight behind Ms. Seyitan Babatayo, who recently accused D’banj of rape.
Yesterday, Seyitan released a statement in which she detailed the horror she went through after some officers of the Nigeria Police burst into her home; they held her in a jail, she said, and treated her like a criminal, and this was after they had denied her access to her personal effect. And as though that was not enough, D’banj’s team later held her in an unknown location, from where they threatened her and took over her social media.
Seyitan also shared details of the timeline of these events, starting from December 2018 when she said the singer broke into her hotel room and raped her.
Her statement has riled Nigerians, with many calling for the singer to be prosecuted for kidnapping, perversion of justice, and other crimes.
See the reactions below:
This is crazy. The Nigerian police must also prosecute @iamdbanj for kidnapping/deprivation of liberty (s269/270), perversion of justice (s97), and bringing false accusation (s93) under Lagos criminal law.

A coherent account of things, unlike the incoherent erratic display we have witnessed from the other party. Seyitan has our support to the end of this thing. https://t.co/rnhHfNayye

My hotel break-in story.
I think I've shared this before but this whole Seyitan matter has dug up painful memories… Thankfully I got some form of justice because I honestly don't know how I would have coped. https://t.co/4r9AVzsI1C

I really hope Dbanj becomes the first Nigerian celebrity to be made a strong example of for believing they can get away with anything. The idiot was here dancing https://t.co/IM1nx0j0xc

Imagine how much crazier that video of Dbanj dancing to olorunmaje is after reading Seyiyan’s press statement. You did all that and you think it’s other people that are wishing you bad, you’re the one attracting curses to yourself, that’s all your doing . Mad man

Two cases should be filed against Dbanj. The rape case which they will likely lose and a Fundamental Rights enforcement case which they can win.
They should get a shark and milk it for what it is worth!!!
