“We didn’t arrest D’banj, he honored our invitation” – ICPC releases statement.

In a statement detailing D’banj’s detention, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, provided further details.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2022, the musician was taken into custody when ICPC agents attacked him and forced him to surrender at the organization’s headquarters.

According to allegations, the kokomaster unlawfully transferred money intended for youth empowerment through the N-Power program into his own accounts.

According to the ICPC, the artist “just fulfilled their request” and has not been arrested as of yet, despite rumors to the contrary.


The statement read:

“In line with its mandate, the Commission had received numerous petitions on the diversion of N-Power funds running into billions of naira following the approval and release of such funds to the beneficiaries by the Federal Government.

Many N-Power beneficiaries had complained over the non-receipt of the monthly funds in spite of payment by the Government.

About 10 persons have been invited by the ICPC over the last few months in connection with the N-Power fraud, and have been granted administrative bail after their detention.

Mr. Oladipo Daniel Oyebanjo disregarded many requests to come before an investigative team and did not accept any of them.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2022, Mr. Oyebanjo self-reported and was brought into prison at the ICPC Headquarters. He is now aiding the investigators in determining the facts surrounding the petitioners’ charges of fraud.

The inquiry will be extensive and include more fraud partners as well as the institutions that are the home of the beneficiaries’ accounts.

In light of the numerous reports in the media, a press release becomes necessary to clarify the situation. The Commission seeks to avoid both the excitement of a media trial and anticipating the conclusion of the inquiry while it is still ongoing.
