Police clear D'banj of rape and N-Power fraud allegations

The Nigeria Police Force and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) have officially cleared popular Nigerian singer Dapo Oyebanjo, widely known as D’banj, of rape and fraud allegations. The police investigation, ordered by the Inspector General of Police in 2020 following a rape accusation against the artist, concluded with a report dated November 14, 2023. The report, signed by ACP YY Abubakar of the Special Enquiry Bureau at the Force Criminal Investigations Department, stated that after thorough examination, there was no substantial evidence to support the rape allegation.

Police clear D'banj of rape and N-Power fraud allegations

The investigation encompassed statements from the complainant, witnesses, and suspects, including an inquiry into the Glee Hotel Lagos, where the alleged incident occurred. The hotel’s management denied the claims, asserting that D’banj was not present on the stated date, and provided key details that debunked the complainant’s allegations. Moreover, the complainant voluntarily withdrew the petition, leading to the discontinuation of the investigation. “The allegation was investigated. The complainant, witnesses, and suspects made their statements. The investigation was extended to the Glee Hotel Lagos, where the staff on duty on the date of the alleged incident made their statement.  The management and staff of the Glee Hotel averred that the first suspect was not seen in the hotel on the date of the alleged incident, nor was he given a spare key to gain access to any room in the hotel where the complainant lodged, and they have only one key to each room, which completely debunked the allegation of the complainant. The management of the hotel also held that it had no record to show that the complainant checked into the hotel as a guest on the alleged date, and she did not, at any time, raise an alarm, complain, or report any indecent assault or rape. There is no medical report on the victim to ascertain that she was raped. There are no adduced facts or corroborative evidence to substantiate the allegation of rape against the suspect. Prima facie offences of indecent assault, rape, and intimidation are not made out. However, the complainant, through her counsel, Ojoge, Omileye & Partners, submitted a letter, dated July 17, 2020, to the DIG Force CID, to voluntarily withdraw the petition and discontinue the investigation.” the police report read in part. In a separate matter, the ICPC had accused D’banj of diverting funds associated with the N-Power Programme of the Federal Government in 2022. However, the ICPC’s investigation yielded no evidence of fraud. A document dated November 29, 2023, with the reference number ICPC/OPS/SDD/SPT.LG/31/23, clarified that there was no prima facie case of fraud against the artist. D’banj’s legal representative, in a deposition before the Chief District Court of the Federal Capital Territory, emphasized that the artist had never held a government position or accessed government funds. “The commission investigated issues of fraud in the administration of the N-POWER Scheme, where Mr Daniel Oladapo Oyebanjo’s name came up. However, there was no prima facie case of fraud against him. Kindly be advised that Mr Daniel Oladapo Oyebanjo is not under investigation with the Commission for any fraud-related offence,” the ICPC clearance partly read. The lawyer affirmed that D’banj’s involvement in the N-power campaign was voluntary and unpaid.

Why Mr. Ibu’s adopted daughter and sons were invited by the Police

"Why Mr. Ibu's adopted daughter and sons were invited by the Police" - Mr. Ibu's ex-manager Chochoo speaks out amid N300m embezzlement allegation

Emeka Chochoo, the former manager of Nollywood actor John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has shed light on the reasons behind the recent police invitation of Mr Ibu’s adopted daughter, Jasmine Chioma Okafor, and his two sons, Daniel and Val. The trio was reportedly invited for questioning regarding the management of funds donated by well-meaning Nigerians for Mr Ibu’s medical treatment. Actress Doris Ogala first broke the news on Wednesday night, revealing that Jasmine and Mr Ibu’s sons were detained at Alagbon Police Station over allegations that Jasmine had transferred a substantial sum, estimated at N300 million, from the donation account to her personal account.

The funds were intended for Mr Ibu’s medical expenses, as the actor recently underwent surgery resulting in the amputation of one of his legs. The situation escalated when it was suggested that Mr Ibu’s wife, Stella Maris Okafor, instigated the police involvement. Stella Maris allegedly demanded transparency and accountability regarding the donated funds and accused Jasmine of diverting the money for personal use. It was further claimed that Stella Maris intended to use the funds to purchase a new house. “Mr. Ibu’s wife alleged that Jasmine moved N300 million out of the account. Ibu’s wife allegedly wanted them to buy her a new house from the money contributed so far for Ibu’s treatments. That’s why she arrested Jasmine,”Doris Ogala said.  In response to the unfolding events, Emeka Chochoo clarified that the police invitation was not tantamount to an arrest and emphasized that the police had summoned Jasmine, Daniel, and Val to inquire about Mr Ibu’s account. Val, however, was reportedly excluded from the situation as he had recently returned to the country and was unaware of the ongoing developments. “Yes, they were all invited by the police. I won’t call it arrest; the police invited them over Mr Ibu’s account. However, Val is left out as he knows nothing about what’s been happening. He just returned to the country,” Emeka Chochoo told punch. “I have not been able to reach any of them,” the ex-manager added. The controversy surrounding the management of the donated funds took an unexpected turn, considering that Mr Ibu’s wife and adopted daughter had previously joined forces to appeal for financial support from Nigerians. The plea came after Mr Ibu underwent surgery, and the actor’s health challenges prompted an outpouring of generosity from well-wishers.

Why police arrested father of viral 'Mummy Calm down' boy

“You’re unusual” – Benjamin Hundeyin tackles Phyna after she clashed with a police officer

Spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin has tackled reality star, Phyna after clashing with a Police officer. Recall that the Big Brother Naija ‘Level Up’ winner went live on social media after getting into a heated argument with a police officer about his filming her.

The stop and search operation carried out by a police officer escalated into a verbal altercation. The policeman clarified that it is legal for them to take pictures and recordings of the people they are tracking. Phyna expressed her displeasure, saying she had never heard of such a law. Phyna escalated the situation by questioning why there was hate for her and criticising people who were pushing the police to act against her.


In response, SP Benjamin noted that while Nigerians are calm when they record police officers, they find it difficult and perceive it as harassment when an officer does the same to them. He revealed that the reality star was disobeying the traffic law, which is why she was filmed as evidence. He also pointed out the hypocrisy and saying that Nigerians couldn’t handle what they were dishing out. In his words: “If you were in my shoes, somebody carries phone on your face, you’ll get angry. You’ll get angry! – a Nigerian 🙄 You guys can’t even take what you dish out. A police officer uses his phone to record you, not randomly, but while you’re breaking a traffic rule and you’re all worked up about it, asking which law empowers him to rightfully get evidence. You’re unusual. But law does not matter when you record police officers in the line of duty, sometimes just to agitate them and quickly scream harassment.” SEE POST: If you were in my shoes, somebody carries phone on your face, you’ll get angry.
