Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused D’banj of raping her in 2018 has been released after being arrested by the Lagos state police.

Seyitan who was said to have been arrested on Tuesday June 16, was released the following day after her lawyers, Ojoge, Omileye, and Partners perfected her bail conditions.

D’banj, through his lawyers, Mike Ozekhome Chambers, has asked Ms Babatayo to pay N100 million as compensation for falsely accusing him of rape.

In a letter signed by his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, and addressed to Ms Babatayo’s lawyers, the singer demanded that his accuser pays the sum within 48 hours or risk legal action.

In the same letter dated June 15, the singer also demanded that a letter of apology and retraction of her statements be written by his accuser and published in four national dailies

The letter read :

“We have been instructed to demand and we do hereby demand from you the following: That your client makes an outright apology and a total retraction of each and every false allegation made against and concerning our client.

“The said apology and retraction shall be published in four national dailies with wide circulation in Nigeria as well as on social media platforms and handles being used by your client and her hirelings.

“That your client makes a compensatory deposit of the sum of N100m only through this chambers in favour of our client to assuage his battered image,” the statement read in part.

The release of Seyitan was confirmed in a tweet by BBC journalist, Kiki Mordi
