Nigerians were livid after reports emerged that D’Banj along with certain Policemen from Ikeja arrested Seyitan.

To that effect, nearly 20,000 people signed a petition urging the UN to strip the singer of his role as their ambassador, which led to the UN denying he ever held that position.

The IGP has now issued a letter demanding that the officers who arrested Seyitan be probed.

The letter which is dated June 25, 2020, and signed by the IGP’s Principal Staff Officer, DCP Idowu Owohunwa, was in response to a Petition Against Inspector Abraham, Supol Ugowe and the Entire Police Officers Team at Ikeja, Lagos Division of the Inspector General of Police issued by Seyitan’s legal team.

The letter, which was addressed to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Garki, read in part, “I forward forthwith copy of a letter dated June 18, 2020 with its attachment received from Ojoge, Omileye and Partners on the above subject.

The petition alleged that policemen attached to the Intelligence Response Team arrested Seyitan on the directive of D’Banj and detained her for more than 24 hours.

They also ‘denied access to her lawyers, her phone was seized and she faced psychological torture’ in the hands of the policemen.
