Frank Amudo, Dbanj’s former manager claims Seyitan Babatayo reported her rape to him

Seyitan

Frank Amudo, the former manager of Dbanj, has spoken to back up claims that Seyitan Babatayo was allegedly raped by Dbanj.

In a statement he gave to PremiumTimes, he said he was the one who invited Seyitan to the party and that she called him a day later that she was allegedly raped at the Glee hotel by Dbanj.

“Upon my arrival in Accra, Seyitan called, saying that D’banj gained access into her hotel room at Glee Hotel by 3am and raped her. I was shocked at this allegation because I wondered how D’banj gained access into this room knowing full well that I did not disclose my room number to him and he was not lodged at the hotel,” his statement read.

He said claimed that he further that he called a mutual friend who was at the party and also lodged at Glee hotel, Ajia Mohammed, to inform him but he was told not to worry about it as he had given Ms Babatayo a hundred dollar.

“I called Seyitan back to ask why she was given $100 and why she would claim she was raped by D’banj and she angrily replied in a series of voice notes reiterating the accusation and that she was told not to tell me because they assumed she was my girlfriend. She said she had left everything in God’s hands and made it clear that she was not interested in taking the matter to the public.”

However, Mr Amudo told PremiumTimes that he did not speak to D’banj about the accusation.

“I chose not to discuss this matter with D’banj because he and his wife were also in Accra as this was supposed to be a healing trip to recover from the loss of their son. I thought it was insensitive to discuss such issue on this trip, as Seyitan had even mentioned that she didn’t want the matter escalated further,” he said.

“Most confounding was that Kemi Olunloyo, who never called me to hear my side of the narration, claimed that I was in the habit of arranging girls for artistes and that I was being ungrateful to D’banj by setting him up in collusion with Seyitan.

“I find this act of defamation very unscrupulous, malicious, mischievous and very damaging to my name and brand. My legal team has initiated moves to earnestly seek redress. The last, of course, has not been heard of this,” he wrote.

“I was invited by the IGP RT team to make a statement in respect of the allegations and I have since done that. The following week, I was invited by a team from the FCID ABUJA to the SFU station at Milverton, Ikoyi.

“I have since gone there and made my statement as requested. I was re-invited again to come in for certain clarifications on some aspects of the investigation, which I have also done.

“I was put on phone with the ACP from the DIG’s office in Abuja and she put me through the entire questioning process again for hours. This experience has been very traumatic and demonstrates a sheer show of power, wealth and influence, considering that I have gone for questioning more than the accused or accuser,” he said.

Last week, through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome Chambers, Dbanj announced that he has increased the damages amount in a new lawsuit.

N1 billion was demanded in damages “over the untold embarrassment, derision, public ridicule, odium, obloguy, marital disharmony, mental agony and psychological trauma which the Defendants’ tweets and publication have caused the claimant.”

N500 million was demanded as “aggravated, puniitive, and exemplary damages.”

The suit also demanded that Seyitan writes D’banj “a letter of unreserved apology for the offensive tweets and posts”.

Dbanj’s lawyers also prayed the court to grant “an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendant from further publishing, tweeting or posting offesnive libelous statements.”
