D’banj Released After 3 Days In Custody

Nigerian Music star, Daniel Oyebanji better known as D’banj, has been released from custody of the Independent Corrupt Practises and other offences Related Commission (ICPC).

D’banj has been in custody since Tuesday when he was arrested on allegation bothering of diversion of N-Power funds.

The N-Power is a scheme established by President Muhammadu Buhari to address the issues of youth unemployment and empowerment, and help increase social development.

The music star was said to have connived with some officials to divert monies meant for beneficiaries of the scheme, an allegation he denied through his lawyer.

However, after days of grilling, D’banj was granted bail.

An ICPC source told Daily Trust that the artiste was allowed to leave the commission’s headquarters on Friday after he fulfilled his bail condition.

On Thursday, Pelumi Olajengbesi, Managing Partner at Law Corridor who is also D’banj’s counsel, had accused the ICPC of detaining the singer for more than the required 48 hours.
