Nigerian singer, Oladapo Oyebanji, popularly known better as D’banj, has called on the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to carry out its investigation thoroughly while urging the general public to resist the urge to buy into media sensationalism.

He said it has become crucial to make a statement for clarity and to set public records straight.

This was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by Maryam El-Yakub Musa, the legal adviser to D’banj.

Recall that ICPC on Wednesday confirmed the arrest and detention of D’Banj, over the investigation of fraud associated with the N-Power Programme.

Part of the statement read: “It is instructive to state foremost that the report concerning the arrest and detention of Mr Daniel Oladapo Oyebanjo is misconceived, malicious and prejudicial to the justice system anywhere in the world, and we would advise that the general public be well guided.
