Popular Nigerian singer, D’banj, through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, has sued the lady who accused the artist of rape for a sum of N1.5 billion.
The accuser, Seyitan Babatayo is also expected to make an appearance in court within thirty days of which failure to do so may result in judgement being passed in her absence.
Court documents available shows that Dbanj is requesting the sum of N1 billion representing the general damages which were brought upon him by virtue of the tweets and publications put out by Seyitan.
“An order directing the defendant to pay the claimant, the sum of N1, 000,000,000.00 (One Billion Naira) only, representing general damages over the untold embarrassment, derision, public ridicule, odium, oloquy, marital disharmony, mental agony and psychological trauma which the defendant’s tweets and publication have caused the claimant,” the document stated.
D’banj is also demanding another N500 million from his accuser for aggravated punitive and exemplary damages.
Seyitan Babatayo and her lawyers are yet to respond to the latest action taken by the singer.
