Seyitan Babatayo, the young lady who alleged that Dapo Oyebanjo popularly known as D’banj, raped her, have demanded that the Nigerian entertainer publicly apologize.
Recall that the whole saga started after Nigerian model scout, Benjamin Ese, alleged that Dbanj had raped his friend on December 31, 2018, at Glee hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos.
He said this on Instagram on June 3 without disclosing the friend’s name. According to Ese, his friend had attended a party in Lagos and was sighted by Dbanj who wanted to have sex with her. He went on to reveal how she was allegedly raped by the musician.
Thereafter, Ms. Babatayo revealed herself and demanded a public apology from the ‘Kokomaster’, D’banj, through her lawyers, Ojoge, Omileye, and Partners. The official demands contained in the letter addressed to the singer include a personal letter of apology to their client, as well as a public apology to her, to be published in two national dailies.
An elusive interview with Premium Times on Wednesday, however revealed that D’banj’s lawyers said his decision on the matter will determine how far they will take the legal battle.
“The ball is in Mr. Oyebanjo’s court. He can either decide to apologize and let the whole matter die down. He can continue to act as if he is not concerned about the situation and he can also fire back. Whichever stand he takes, our legal team is always ready to provide the necessary re-action to the action and to ensure that justice is done in the case.”
They also maintained that they will be settling the matter legally because they are not after “the social media or celebrity kind of justice.”
“However, we need to state that our client is not concerned about the media in the pursuit of her justice. All she wanted is to heal from her hurt and live the normal life she was living prior to the unfortunate event of December 31, 2018,” they reportedly said.
