D'banj sues rape accuser, Seyitan Babatayo for 1.5 billion Naira
The case between entertainer, D’banj and Seyitan Babatayo, the woman who accused him of rape has thickened.

Recall that D’banj had initially filed a 100 million Naira lawsuit against her for defamation of character after she accused him of rape and demanded an apology.

Now, following all the events of the past, D’banj has retracted that lawsuit and instead filed another demanding for 1.5 billion Naira from Seyitan.

For the “over the untold embarrassment, derision, public ridicule, odium, obloquy, marital disharmony, mental agony and psychological trauma which the Defendants’ tweets and publication have caused the claimant,” the entertainer demanded one billion Naira.

For “aggravated, punitive, and exemplary damages,” D’banj demanded 500 million Naira from his accuser.

In addition to this, he also asked the court to issue an injunction that would prevent Seyitan from “further publishing, tweeting or posting offensive libellous statements”.

Recall that over the past few weeks, Seyitan and D’banj have been in a social media tug of war with Seyitan accusing D’banj of detaining her and using the police to harass her. 

D’banj has been relatively silent over the issue but snippets of information have leaked out.
