Nigerian Singer, D’banj, has reacted to the backlash he received from the ‘media’ following the messy scandal that ensued after he was accused of rape by a lady identified as Seyitan.
On the 3rd of June, 2020, Seyitan shared details of being raped by D’banj on Twitter.
He denied the allegation a week later, tagged it ”lies from the pit of hell” and said he’d be seeking justice by taking legal steps.
However few days later, some policemen allegedly acting on the instruction of the singer detained Seyitan for over 24 hours.
After this incident, Seyitan deleted all chats, social media posts and retracted her former statement. This elicited a wide range of criticism on social media with D’Banj trending on social media for about three days.
Reacting to the backlash, he has now shared a video on his IG page with the caption ;
Innocent until proven guilty…., STOP SOCIAL MEDIA TRIAL #SAY NO TO RAPE AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION
