Franklin Amudo, a former manager of singer, Dapo Oyebanjo aka DBanj, has released an official statement regarding the rape allegation leveled against DBanj by a lady, Seyitan Babatayo.

In his statement, Franklin said he was the one who invited Seyitan to an event in Lagos where DBanj attended and performed on December 30, 2018. He said he gave Seyitan the keys to his room to pass the night at Glee hotel when she told him she couldn't return home that night as it was too late. He did not sleep in the room as he had to go home to prepare for an early morning flight to Accra, Ghana.

Franklin said Seyitan called him later that night to allege that DBanj found his way into her room and raped her. He said he immediately called one Ajia Mohammed and informed him of the allegation Seyitan made. Franklin said Ajia told him not to worry about it and that he had given Seyitan $100, though the purpose for the money wasn't stated.

Franklin said he was unable to ask DBanj at the time because it was the same period the singer lost his son and he felt it would be insensitive for him to discuss such a thing with him.

Nigerian police denies detaining Seyitan after she accused D'banj of rape



The Nigerian police has denied detaining Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused singer, D'banj, of rape.

A police source who spoke to Vanguard, said D’banj reported on three separate occasions at FCID for interrogation and statement, while Seyitan repeatedly refused to show up. Her alleged non-appearance led to the prompt dispatch of officers by the Force CID to Lagos, to invite her for written statement and interrogation on the alleged rape incident.

The police source insisted that there might be a mix up by the legal representative of Seyitan over claims of being arrested and detained by Police operatives at Ikeja in Lagos for 24 hours.

The security official insisted that the alleged rape victim was only invited to give her written statement and also to be interrogated as it was necessary for her to come forward to give a statement to back up her accusation.

I rape women during operations. It is better Police kill me than take me back to prison ― Suspect



A 27-year-old self-confessed robber and serial rapist, Adeniyi Ajayi, yesterday disclosed that he raped women and maids in the presence of their husbands and bosses, as punishment for refusing to give him money, during operation.

According to vanguardngr, rather than showing remorse for his action, Ajayi, who is an ex-convict, begged the Police to kill him, instead of sending him back to prison. The suspect, who runs a one-man squad, was arrested in a hotel at Ijora 7-up area of Lagos.
His modus operandi was to break into victims’ homes, ordering them to cooperate with him or risk being killed by other members of his gang whom he claimed had surrounded the building.

When news of his arrest filtered round Sabo and its environ, eight victims, some of who were civil servants and lawyers, stormed SARS office to affirm that he raped them during operation.

Among them were also two female staff of a company in Sabo, who disclosed that he raped them right before their male colleagues, in broad daylight on June 16, 2020.

During interrogation, he admitted culpability. He said: ”Yes, I rape women whose husbands refused to give me money, and those tried to make things difficult for me during operation.
I operated alone, with just torchlight. But I would be giving orders to my imaginary gang members, on where to position themselves, just to give the impression that I was not alone.

The solution to this act is for the Police to waste my life because if they take me to prison, I will come back hardened and I don’t want to keep disturbing Nigerians. It is better they waste my life. They should just kill me to end it all.” 📸: Vanguardngr

Instead of raping, watch porn and masturbate — Actress Maduka



Nollywood actress, Amara Maduka , has proffered a compelling solution to rape. In a recent interview with NewTelegraph, the actress cum nudist, shared her opinion on the notion that pornography contributed to the increase in rape cases. She said ; “In my opinion adult contents has nothing to do with rape. As a matter of fact, rape would reduce if the society embraced adult contents instead of frown at it. It’s basic knowledge that mankind will always long for the forbidden fruit.

Because it’s a big deal, people are going to always crave it. But if it’s embraced and the men know that a woman’s body is just a body.

Everyone has one and it’s not a big deal to see a woman’s body because their sisters have one and their mothers have one, then they would see every woman as human and not an object.

And whatever happened to masturbating? They have plastic vagina now and they won’t burn in hell for wanking when they’re horny, instead of raping they should probably watch some “adult contents” and masturbate. And all that aside, people really need to practice self control”.

17-year-old girl who travelled 210kms to see a man she met on Facebook, raped by 3 men



An aggrieved Kenyan mother has called for the arrest of three men who raped her 17-year-old daughter on seperate occasions in early June.
Recalling how the incident occurred, the girl said she knows only one of the men from Facebook and gave his name as "Vincent". She said he invited her to his home in Mbale, a distance of 210 kilometers from Mbita where she stays with her Aunt.
She said; “I met the man on Facebook. His first name is Vincent, and the surname indicates he is of Luhya ethnicity. He invited me to Mbale, Vihiga County so that I know where he stays — Hekima area. I usually stay with my aunt. I told her that I was going to pay mum a visit and return on Sunday, June 14. “He told me to use my money to travel to his place, and that he will refund once I get there. Vincent defiled and kicked me out of his house without giving me any money to travel back home. “While stranded, I met a boda boda rider, who promised to provide me with somewhere to shelter for the night. He further said that the following day, he will take me to Kisumu, where I will board a bus home. He took me to a lodging facility in Kakamega, where he defiled and stole my phone. “On returning to Mbale, I met yet another man, who took me to Vincent’s place. We found the door had been locked. The then-curfew cut-off hour of 7pm had clocked. So, the man told me he would take me to his place, where I would spend the night. While at his home, he defiled me and kicked me out the following morning. “I want this case to be pursued to the end. The men hurt me." The rape victim who said a female Good Samaritan helped her seek medical treatment and file a report at Mbale Police Station on June 10, identified her last defiler as one Davies, who “stays near Mbale High School”. The mother of the 17-year-old on her own part said; “My 17-year-old daughter stays with her aunt, who lives in Mbita. She (daughter) told me that she would come home on Friday, June 5. When I called her later Friday to inquire, why she had taken long to arrive home, she said I shouldn’t worry, and that she’d be home soon. In the evening, her phone line was unreachable. I did not know where she had gone to, or what had happened to her. “On Tuesday, June 9, I received a call from a police officer attached to Mbale Police Station. The cop asked me to go to the station because my daughter was seriously ill. I was shocked; I did not know how she got to Mbale in Vihiga County, a place that I, personally, had never set foot in. I was told that she met one of her defilers on Facebook.” K2TV reported that one of the suspects, David Nyangweso has been arrested and arraigned. He is being held in custody as investigations into the matter continue.

Mrs Ekenta said that she asked her husband what transpired and he admitted committing the crime and took the girl to hospital where it was revealed that he used his manhood instead of his hands as he claimed.

Dbanj not our Ambassador-UN



United Nations has said artiste, Oladapo Oyebanjo better known as D’Banj, is not a United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace, contrary to circulating reports.

The Director of Information, United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria, Joseph Kayanja, said this during an email chat with The Punch on Wednesday.
Following the rape allegation leveled against D’Banj by Seyitan Babatayo, an online petition set up by one E. Popoola began calling on the UN to strip the musician of the title.
.
The petition on Change.org has been signed by over 22,000 people as at June 24, 2020.
In 2012, D’Banj’s publicists had announced that the musician was the first Nigerian to be appointed a UN Youth Ambassador for Peace, an appointment which is also featured on his Wikipedia page.

Responding to an inquiry from the media outlet, the UN has now declared that D’Banj was never at any time given the title of ambassador by the UN.
The email read in part;

I would like to confirm that the said Mr. Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj is not a UN Ambassador. The title was accorded to him by an obscure UN youth association which has nothing to do with the United Nations. I hope this clarifies.

Some human rights activists and persons interested in the ongoing issue have been calling on brands such as Heritage Bank Africa, One Africa, CSA Global, and other establishments to disassociate themselves from Dbanj and stand in support of victims of sexual violence.
.
It is rumored that a N45 million endorsement deal with Heritage Bank Africa which the Kokomaster recently signed to mark his 40th birthday has been suspended due to the rape allegation.
