Popular musician Oladapo Oyebanjo, often known as D’banj, was released by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission after spending nearly 72 hours in detention (ICPC).
Recall that D’banj was detained by the anti-graft agency on Tuesday due to charges of fraud surrounding the N-Power programme.
According to a recent update, the singer was freed on Friday, December 9th, in the afternoon. The ICPC may later issue a summons to the performer, though.
The singer cooperated with the Commission during its probe, according to the artist’s attorney, Pelumi Olajengbesi, who spoke to Premium Times.
While pointing out that Dbanj was released on his own recognizance, Mr. Olajengbesi did not disclose whether the ICPC had given the singer administrative bail.
He added that the singer was not linked to any proof of fraudulent activities by the ICPC.
Nothing incriminating was discovered on him. When he recognized himself, he was let go. Since we have always maintained that D’banj is innocent of the accusations made against him, we now anticipate the ICPC to issue a letter of clearance to him,” he said.
According to a source who spoke with Sahara Reporters, the musician “plans to come out shortly.”
