D’banj Speaks On Alleged N-power Fraud
Kokomaster D’banj has addressed allegations that he was involved in an alleged N-power fraud.
The artiste was taken into custody by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC) over an alleged crime of fund diversion.
Just after his release in the early hours of Friday, December 9, 2022, D’bank took to his social media pages to address his arrest and allegations.
Thanking everyone for their support, he revealed that he had helped the ICPC with all he knew.
He wrote, “Gobal thank you to the world. I was invited to an ongoing investigation in ICPC. I have assisted the commission with all I know and I am confident in their capacity to unravel the truth in the matter. I have no business with fraud, all I do is #choplife.”
On Tuesday, December 6th, 2022, news broke that the D’banj had been detained by the ICPC after several calls from the commission were ignored.
The commission confirmed that the artiste was placed under investigation for allegedly diverting funds released for the federal government’s N-Power project; a project initiated in 2016 to combat the country’s unemployment challenges.
However, D’banj denied having any affiliation with the fraud allegations the ICPC made against him.
D’banj’s lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi revealed that D’banj was released on supervised probation. He however did not confirm whether the commission had placed him on administrative bail.
The commission on the other hand assured that the investigation is ongoing, and claims against the singer have been dropped.
