At Last! Legal  Counsel Defends D'banj Over Fraud Allegation

By Agboola Ibrahim

Following the fraud allegation by ICPC against Nigeria popular singer, D'banj, his legal counsel has vehemently defended him over the matter.

It should recalled that D'banj's Arrest followed a claim of his diverting government funds which wasreported yesterda by The Nigeria Voice.

Although, ICPC spokesperson came afterwards to refute the rumour surrounding D'banj's Arrest, however, his lawyer took the charge to defend his side. The ICPC spokesperson together with the legal counsel revealed that D'banj voluntarily submitted himself in order to clear his role on the matter.

Nevertheless, D'banj's legal counsel confirmed that he is a reference point for hard work, diligence and honesty and would never act in such accusation.

“On Monday the 5th of December, 2022, D’banj freely and of his law-abiding accord went to the Commission at about 2pm immediately he arrived Abuja. The Officers of the Commission advised that he returned the following day as it will late for any interview on said Monday.

“D’banj returned to the Commission the following day being Tuesday the 6th of December, 2022 as earlier agreed and voluntarily submitted himself to the Commission to make their inquiry and investigation,” the lawyer said.

According to Musa, D’banj encourages the Commission to carry out its investigation thoroughly to ensure that characters attempting to bring him into such “ridiculous” activities are brought to book.

“It is inconceivable that D’banj whose very career is a reference point for hard work, diligence and honesty would lend his reputation built steadfastly over the years to acts of such accusations which he must now stoically suffer through while clearing his name.

“The general public are advised to resist the urge to buy into media sensationalism which is unsurprising but regardless harmful to the course for the truth which D’banj has willing set himself on by honouring the ICPC’s summons,” the lawyer said.
