The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission has arrested and detained Afro Pop Star, Oladapo Oyebanji popularly known as D’banj, over alleged fund diversion of millions of N-Power funds.
Earlier, online outlet, Premium Times exclusively reported that D’banj was arrested and detained on Tuesday at the ICPC Headquarters, Abuja.
An anonymous source said that D’banj colluded with some government officials to infuse ghost beneficiaries into the payroll of the scheme.
Subsequently, the stipend paid to those ghost beneficiaries were directly paid to bank accounts linked to the singer.
The source added that though D’Banj had earlier been invited for questioning on several occasions the singer had refused to show up, claiming that he was out of the country for scheduled concerts.
