R.a.p.e Allegations: United Nations Denies D’banj As Ambassador

The United Nations (UN) has debunked the report that Nigerian musician, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, better known as D’banj, who is accused of raping a woman named Seyitan Babatayo, is one of its ambassadors.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

Director of Information at the United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria, Joseph Kayanja, stated this in an interview with the Punch Newspapers published on Wednesday.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

This is contrary to the claim made by the singer’s team in 2012, hailing him as the first Nigerian to be appointed a UN Youth Ambassador.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

Following the rape allegation, over 15,000 people have signed an online petition calling on the United Nations and other organizations to strip  D’Banj of his appointment.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

The UN has now distanced itself from the singer, claiming that position was conferred on him by a UN youth association and not the organisation itself.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

“I would like to confirm that the said Mr. Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj is NOT a UN Ambassador. The title was accorded to him by an obscure UN youth association which has nothing to do with the United Nations. I hope this clarifies,” the statement by Kayanja reads in part.(Wapbaze_Copyright)
