Seyitan Babatayo, the woman who accused veteran singer Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, popularly known as D’banj, of rape, has released a press statement detailing the timeline of events since she came out with her story.
In the statement, Seyitan insisted that she was raped by D’banj.
She also claimed that he arrested and intimidated her after she came out with her story then threatened that he can “buy off anyone within the justice system in Lagos.
In her statement, Seyitan insisted that she was “violated and raped” by D’banj after he allegedly gained access into her hotel room on December 30, 2018.
She said she was forced to come out with her story on June 3, 2020, to call D’banj out in his “hypocrisy” after he went online to make a post about “saying no to rape”.
“Most importantly, nobody should have the right to use their name or status to intimidate survivors who speak out or to tamper with justice.”
She thanked those who stood by her and asked for time to heal.
