Recall that D’banj had made his first official statement following his release from ICPC custody.

“Global thank you to the world. I was invited on 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. I have no business with fraud, all I do is chop life. I was released on self recognition because nothing was seen or found on me. God bless you all my people’.
D’banj was released after 72 hours of detention.
Afrobeats singer D’Banj was released almost 72 hours after he was arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
The singer was released on Friday afternoon, and he has been speaking through his lawyer over the matter.
His lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, who took to social media to announce the release of his client, stated that all through his client’s detention, the singer cooperated with the Commission while telling the agency all he knew about the matter.
Mr. Olajengbesi said D’banj was released on self-recognition but didn’t confirm if the ICPC granted the singer administrative bail.
“Nothing incriminating was found on him. He was released on self-recognition. Right now, we expect the ICPC to give a letter of clearance to Dbanj because, as we have always said, he is innocent of the charges brought against him,” the lawyer said.
A Source who spoke to Sahara Reporters said that “The musician is planning to speak out soon,”.
The reliable source said that two Nigerian banks have submitted voluminous financial statements to the anti-graft agency in relation to the matter.
