The news we are picking up indicates that Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the probe of the policemen who allegedly arrested D’Banj’s rape accuser, Seyitan Babatayo.
The letter dated, June 25, 2020, with reference number CZ:7050/IGP.SEC/ABJ/Vol. 132/978 reads;
‘Re: Petition Against Inspector Abraham, Suppl Ugowe and the Entire Police Officers Team at Ikeja, Lagos Division of the Inspector General of Police’
I forward forthwith copy of a letter dated June 18, 2020 with its attachment received from Ojoge, Omileye and Partners on the above subject.
I am to respectfully convey the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that you deal.”
This comes after a petition was filed by Seyitan’s lawyer, Ojoge, Omileye and Partners some days ago.

The petition reads;
“On Tuesday, June 16, 2020, our client was picked up alongside a friend, Favour, at her residence in Lagos by the officers of the Ikeja IGP IRT. The arrest was without any warrant and neither our client nor her friend, Favour, was informed of the reasons for their arrest.
According to our client, she was told to write a statement denying ever meeting with Mr. Oyebanjo (D’Banj) and to also state that she lied against the person of Mr. Oyebanjo. In actual fact, our client was about to write the statement which she believed would be a basis for her release when the counsel came in and stopped her from writing such a statement.
The counsel further informed the policemen that all actions to the alleged rape of our client in December 2018 by Mr. Oyebanjo have been transferred to the DIG FCID for a thorough investigation and that they need to stay the action.”
