Nigerian Musician D’Banj Was Apprehended And Arrested For Fraud (See Details)

D’banj, the Nigerian musician, was apprehended and placed under custody for defrauding investors.

He was reportedly forced to give himself in on Tuesday at the ICPC headquarters in Abuja after ICPC agents surrounded him.

According to reports, the musician allegedly evaded summonses for weeks by claiming that he was away performing at booked gigs each time he was requested to appear for questioning over fraud allegations.

The music star had frequently turned down invitations to appear for questioning, so the ICPC made attempts to have him arrested anywhere in Nigeria and abroad. He was compelled by this to show up on December 6 to the commission’s office.

The singer is accused of stealing hundreds of naira from the Nigerian government that were earmarked for the N-Power project, an empowerment program that was started in 2016 to fight youth unemployment and enhance social development.

According to the investigators, D’banj and certain corrupt government officials planned to add phony beneficiaries to the scheme’s payroll.

The stipend is then sent into those beneficiaries’ accounts, which are now allegedly linked to him.

After a drawn-out interrogation that started when he arrived, D’banj was taken into custody. Because they did not trust the musician to present at his trial if released on bond, officials denied his plea for administrative bail.

In order to complete its investigation before charging the musician, the ICPC may ask the court for an extended remand order on Wednesday, according to our sources.
