Police Force Headquarters, Abuja, elaborate that it decided to discontinue with the case of Ms. Seyitan Babatayo, who accused Mr. Oladayo Oyabanjo aka D’Banj, because its investigators could not establish any corroborative substantive evidence in support of Seyitan’s allegation of rape against D’Banj.

The Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, who spoke against the backdrop of reports that there were still underground investigations of the allegations ongoing, said the case had been officially closed by the Police.

Emphasising on why the Police halted the case, DCP Frank Mba said: “Essentially, we decided to discontinue the investigation into the case for two reasons.

“One, after an exhaustive investigation that took our investigators even up to the hotel where the incident allegedly took place, and so many other actions that we took, we have not been able to establish any corroborative evidence in support of the allegation.

“Secondly, the complainant, through her legal representatives, has voluntarily withdrawn the petition. For these two reasons, a decision was taken to discontinue the investigation.”

Recall that Ms Seyitan Temidayo Babatayo had withdrawn the petition against Mr. Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj for rape, indecent sexual assault and threat to life.
