It appears the drama between Nigerian singer Dbanj and a lady identified as Seyitan Babatayo has taken a new course following some recent claims made by a journalist on Twitter.
The investigative journalist identified as Kiki Mordi, claimed that Seyitan who recently accused the music star of molesting her in the past, was taken into detention on Tuesday, June 16.
In addition to this, Mordi also claimed that the lady has been denied access to her lawyers, family and friends.
"Seyitan accused D'Banj a couple of weeks before this article of sexual assault. Yesterday at about noon, Seyitan was and is still detained in Sodipo Ikeja and hasn't been granted access to friends, family or a lawyer lawyers," Mordi tweeted.

The journalist noted that she has spoke with Seyitan’s lawyer and they have reason to believe she is being pressured to recant the rape accusations leveled against Dbanj.
She said: "I spoke to her lawyers and they also have reason to believe she's being coerced to recant her accusations but with no one having access to her it's difficult to ascertain! They have applied for bail and our fingers are crossed."
Mordi also told people who reached out to help that there is no way to ascertain what can be done at the moment since there has been no access to Seyitan.
She, however, noted that some women have started raising funds to help Seyitan with bail and legal counsel.
