D’banj has sued his rape accuser, Seyitan Babatayo for N1.5 billion.

Popular Nigerian singer, D’Banj has sued Seyitan Babatayo for N1.5 billion, following rape allegation she made against him.

KanyiDaily recalls that on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, Seyitan narrated how Dbanj raped her during an all-white party in 2018, at Glee hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos State.

The 50-year-old singer has since then denied the rape allegations and asked his accuser to make a public apology published in four national dailies and also pay him the sum of N100 million in damages.

But due to the recent turn of events, Dbanj, through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, has now asked Ms Babatayo to pay him N1.5 billion.
