Popular Nigerian singer, Oladapo Oyebanjo also known as D’banj on Tuesday was arrested and detained by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
Naija News had earlier reported that the singer was accused of fraudulently diverting hundreds of millions of naira earmarked by the Nigerian government for the N-Power project.
It was gathered that D’banj allegedly connived with some government officials to introduce ghost beneficiaries into the payroll of the scheme.
Following the indication that D’banj connived with some government officials, some Nigerians on Twitter have charged ICPC to reveal the name of the officials involved in the alleged fraud.
See some reactions of Twitter users following the detention of D’banj.
Idris wrote, “Bro! They said D’banj and some govt officials diverted money. They mentioned D’banj’s name but didn’t mention any govt officials. Government officials are now “Unknown Fraud Men” UFM.”
TC said, “By the time ICPC is done investigating N-Power account not only D’banj will be arrested. Besides N-Power, all other programmes should be investigated.”
Mark Dasouze wrote, “What of the government officials involved? What are their names and have they been detained?”
Sunny Alex stated, “I don’t support any diversion of what should be for the benefit of others if that is it. But what about those in public offices, who claimed to be civil servants but are evil servants that have been diverting our resources to enrich their pockets?”
Penking also stated, “If D’banj is convicted, it will prove that most Nigerian celebrities are funding their glamorous lifestyle with fraud. No hit song for two decades, no concerts or one boring skit with 1000 views but you are buying house in Banana Island. You must be Jesus Christ of our time.”
Alaku Blessing Uche said, “The government officials no get names again.”
Samuel Oamen wrote, “So was it only Dbanj that diverted N-POWER funds, where are those top Govt. officials that aided him in the diversion?. Nigeria my Country I hail.”
