D’Banj released, as lawyers say ICPC found nothing on him

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission stated that it had released pop star, Oladapo Oyebanjo (aka D’banj), but investigations were ongoing.

Recall that the self-acclaimed ‘koko master’ was detained by the commission on Tuesday, December 6, 2022, after he had been questioned over his involvement in an alleged diversion of funds meant for the Federal Government’s economic empowerment programme, N-Power.

On his part, Pelumi Olajengbesi, the lawyer to popular singer, Oladapo Oyebanjo, aka D’banj, said his client was released unconditionally by the commission.

However, the ICPC, through its spokesperson, Azuka Ogugua, maintained that the anti-graft agency was still investigating the matter.

D’banj’s lawyers said “D’banj was released unconditionally after the ICPC did all they could to find something on him, but they found nothing on him.

“ICPC only started the investigation when D’banj was detained. They found nothing on him after he was properly questioned and drilled. They had to even go beyond the scope of their investigation, yet they found nothing. We are glad that they were professional about it. They treated him kindly and released him. He was released on self-recognisance.”

The lawyer insisted that there was no case in court. He said, “There is no case in court, D’banj was not charged to court by the ICPC. They can decide to come up with anything tomorrow, as it is within their power and responsibility. They are still doing their investigations and we expect them to clear him officially when they are done with it.”
