Nearly 15,000 People Signed Petition to Remove D’Banj as UN Ambassador

Nearly 15,000 people have signed an online petition calling on the United Nations to strip singer D’Banj whose real name is Oladapo Oyebanjo of his appointment as United Nations Ambassador for Peace.

In addition, they called the attention of brands such as Heritage Bank Africa, One Africa, CSA Global, and other establishments associated with D’Banj to end their commercial relationship with him and stand in support of victims of sexual violence.

The petition which was started by one E.Pooola on Thursday on Change.Org had hit 14,310 as of 11:10 am on today, June 19, the Punch reports.

It read in part, “We call on the United Nations, and United Nations Women Africa organisations to remove Nigerian artiste Mr Dapo Oyebanjo as a youth ambassador and distance themselves from his actions following the sponsored kidnap of Seyitan who accused D’Banj of rape and sexual assault which happened in 2018.

“Women in Nigeria are increasingly at risk of sexual violence and the United Nations and United Nations Women Africa as an entity committed to the empowerment of women should not be seen to associate themselves with alleged rapists, abusers, and kidnappers.

“We ask the United Nations and United Nations Women Africa to support and lend their influence in helping Seyitan get justice for the abuse she endured in 2018 and the harassment and bullying in the past weeks.”

In early June, Seyitan’s friend, Benjamin Ese, a model scout had exposed the singer in Twitter where he claimed D’Banj raped Seyitan in a hotel two years ago.
