Following the arrest of D’banj, his lawyer has defended him against Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
The commission alleged that several invitations to the “Oliver Twist” crooner to appear before a team of investigators had been “ignored and not honored.”
His Assistant Team Head, Litigation, Law Corridor, Maryam Musa, in a statement on Wednesday, said, as a matter of policy, D’banj and his management do not engage in business dealings “unless they are legitimate, properly documented and obtainable in law.”
The lawyer however acknowledged the ongoing ICPC investigation of alleged diversion of N-Power funds.

“On Monday the 5th of December, 2022, D’banj freely and of his law-abiding accord went to the Commission at about 2pm immediately he arrived Abuja. The Officers of the Commission advised that he returned the following day as it was late for any interview on said Monday.
