The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission has arrested and detained Afro Pop maestro, Oladapo Oyebanji popularly known as D’banj, over alleged fund diversion of millions of N-Power funds in collaboration with some government officials The PUNCH reports.
He is currently detained at the ICPC Headquarters, Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Premium Times had earlier exclusively reported that D’banj was arrested and detained on Tuesday.
An impeccable source within the anti-graft agency confirmed to our correspondent that D’banj was arrested and detained on the said day after ICPC operatives forced him to surrender after threats that he’d be arrested anywhere in the world, if he failed to show up.
The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, noted that though D’Banj had earlier been invited for questioning on several occasions the singer had refused to show up, claiming that he was out of the country for scheduled concerts.
The source noted that an official statement would soon be released concerning the matter, confirmed that D’Banj would be arraigned in court this week.
The spokesperson for the ICPC, Mrs. Azuka Ogugua, did not take calls or respond to text messages by our correspondent on Wednesday morning.
