Rape allegation: Lawyers demand immediate arrest of D’Banj, Blast Police for shielding him

The Coalition of Public Interest Lawyers and Advocates (COPA) has demanded the immediate arrest of Nigerian singer, D’Banj. This is coming after reports emerged that he allegedly bought over the police and made them arrest Seyitan Babatayo for accusing him of rape.

The group accused the police of giving D’Banj preferential treatment, saying they have “muddled up and complicated the process for truth and justice in this matter.”

They first of all thanked the Inspector-General of Police for his timely intervention in the case before going on to call for DBanj’s arrest.

“We refuse to concede that any person, regardless of social status, influence and standing in life, is empowered to enjoy preferential treatment over any other especially within the sector of crime detection and justice delivery in our dear nation,” Punch News quoted Patrick Odey as saying.

“We find it odd that the first line of action of the Nigeria Police Force in a matter such as the present case is to arrest and detain the victim in an allegation while failing to invite the accused before it for interrogation,”

The COPA Director then called for a transparent and visibly investigation to ensure that a proper, dispassionate and comprehensive investigation into the allegations was conducted without considering the personality involved.
