Nigerians on Twitter have slammed singer D’banj for allegedly arresting Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused him of raping her at Glee hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos, in 2018.
Seyitan was arrested yesterday and detained in Sodipo police station, Ikeja, Lagos and allegedly hasn’t been granted access to friends, family or a lawyer.
The arrest came 2 days after the singer, through his lawyers, asked Seyitan to pay N100 million as compensation for falsely accusing him of rape and tender a public apology.
A tweet from Seyitan’s account which was posted about 2 hours ago reads; “I’m done with all these back and forth drama…Frank took me to the party and gave me the key to the room. I’m moving on and leaving everything behind me. Thanks and God bless”
Twitter Naija took to the platform to react after Seyitan deleted all tweets from her Twitter account, including the rape accusations.
Nigerians are now dragging and “cancelling” Dbanj, saying Seyitan was coerced to post the new tweet, and that the singer is using his influence to intimidate her.

Nah Dbanj isn’t tryna get justice. He’s not tryna clear his name. He’s trying to silence Seyitan. You arrest her, give her no access to legal assistance & then take over socials ? Hide information that benefits your agenda ? RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES ?? What can we do for @seyitannn_
Nobody is stopping Dbanj from taking legal action if he’s accused wrongly but why get the young lady detained? This show of power isn’t it.
