The letter was actually a response to a petition by Mr. Tommy Ojoge-Daniel, the lawyer to Miss Seyitan Babatayo.

The letter was titled;

‘Re: Petition Against (1) Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo (Aka D’Banj) for Rape Indecent Sexual Assault, Attempted Assault on Miss Seyitan Temidayo and part of the letter reads;

“I forward herewith a copy of a letter dated June 5, 2020, received from Ojoge, Omileye, and Partners on the above-underlined subject. I am to respectfully convey the directive of the Inspector-General of Police that you treat.
