Popular Nigerian singer Dbanj is currently trending on micro blogging platform, Twitter, following recent allegations that Seyitan Babatayo, a lady who accused him of sexual abuse, was detained by the police.
Many took to the micro blogging platform to call out the singer and suggest that the move only makes him look guilty and appear as if he is trying to silence and intimidate his accuser.

Reacting to the reports, many took to their respective Twitter pages to wade into the matter and speak against Dbanj.
"@iamdbanj Why have you had a woman who accused you of rape detained without access to her friends, family or legal representation? Threatening and silencing her does not acquit you," one user wrote.
