No Jokes: D’banj Slams Fresh N1.5 Billion Lawsuit On Seyitan Babatayo Over Rape Allegation




Amidst the claims and counter claims on the alleged rape by Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, popularly known as D’banj, the singer has slammed a 1.5 billion Naira suit on his accuser, Seyitan Babatayo.

Recall that in an earlier filled lawsuit, D’banj demanded N100 million Naira from Babatayo for “defamation of character”. He also demanded an apology through her lawyers.

D’banj, through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome Chambers, has raised the stakes to N1.5 billion Naira.

According to the new suit, N1 billion was demanded in damages “over the untold embarrassment, derision, public ridicule, odium, obloguy, marital disharmony, mental agony and psychological trauma which the Defendants’ tweets and publication have caused the claimant.”

N500 million was demanded as “aggravated, puniitive, and exemplary damages.”

The suit also demanded that Seyitan writes D’banj “a letter of unreserved apology for the offensive tweets and posts”.

D’banj’s lawyers also prayed the court to grant “an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendant from further publishing, tweeting or posting offesnive libelous statements.”

Babatayo has been blowing hot and cold. Recall that she first released a statement detailing the timeline of her case with D’banj. She had initially posted a tweet denying that she was arrested on D’banj’s orders. She also said she wanted to put everything behind her.

However, in the statement released afterwards, she said she was arrested and held for 24 hours after which she was released to D’banj’s team who took her to an undisclosed location, denied her access to her family and lawyers, threatened her, took over control of her social media account, and coerced her to retract her statement.
