The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) confirmed on Wednesday the arrest and detention of Mr Oladipo Daniel Oyebanjo, known by his stage name D’Banj, over the investigation of fraud associated with the N-Power Programme.
The singer is alleged to have connived with some government officials, created ghost beneficiaries, and paid the money into accounts that have been linked to him.
About 10 persons have been invited by the ICPC over the last few months in connection with the N-Power fraud, and have been granted administrative bail after their detention. Several invitations to Mr. Oladipo Daniel Oyebanjo, to appear before a team of investigators were ignored and not honoured.
It was learnt that the singer, who had failed to honour his summons for months, surrendered himself on Monday. He was then reportedly detained and denied bail.
