Oladapo Oyebanji, popularly known as D’Banj, says allegations of fraud against him, have not been established.
The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) arrested and detained the musician two days ago after he failed to honour several invitations for questioning.
Azuka Ogugua, Spokesperson of ICPC, says D’Banj is being investigated for allegedly colluding with some government officials to introduce ghost beneficiaries into the payroll of the N-Power scheme and subsequently diverting the money to accounts that have now reportedly been linked to the pop star.
Maryam El-Yakub Musa, counsel to D’banj, refuted the allegations, saying the musician has no contractual or incidental relationship whatsoever with any group or persons within or outside government in relation to the disbursement, operations, access, or control of the process of any government fund.
The lawyer described reports on D’banj’s arrest and detention as misconceived, malicious, and prejudicial.
