Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, popularly known as D’banj, has sued his rape accuser, Seyitan Babatayo for N1.5 billion Naira.
In an initial lawsuit, D’banj demanded N100 million Naira from Seyitan Babatayo for “defamation of character” after she accused him of rape and demanded an apology through her lawyers.
D’banj, through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome Chambers, after all that has happened in recent times, has asked Ms Babatayo to pay N1.5 billion Naira.
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”.
D’banj’s lawyers also prayed the court to grant “an order of perpetual injunction restraining the defendant from further publishing, tweeting or posting offenive libelous statements.”
