Recall that the petition on Change.org was signed after D’Banj arrested Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused him of rape.
Speaking about this, Director of Information, United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria, Joseph Kayanja revealed that D’banj is not a United Nations’ Youth Ambassador for Peace.
According to him, D’Banj was never at any time given the title of ambassador by the UN.
The email he sent read in part,
“I would like to confirm that the said Mr. Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj is NOT a UN Ambassador.
“The title was accorded to him by an obscure UN youth association which has nothing to do with the United Nations. I hope this clarifies.”
