Renowned Nigerian On-Air Personality (OAP), Kayode Oladotun, popularly known as Do2dtun, has been issued a court order by a Chief District Court in the Federal Capital Territory’s Wuse Zone 2, Abuja. The court order instructs him to refrain from making slanderous remarks about musician Oladapo Oyebanjo, also known as D’banj, on social media or any other platform.
Furthermore, the court directed the Deputy Inspector of Police from the Force Intelligence Bureau to investigate a criminal complaint lodged by D’banj against Do2dtun and submit a report to the court within two weeks.
This injunction was granted by Justice Emmanuel Iyanna on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, in a case identified as Motion No.: MN/218/2023. According to reports from Punch, D’banj sought the injunction to prevent Do2dtun from sharing allegedly defamatory statements about him on social media. D’banj’s application was made through one of his attorneys, Toheeb Lawal, from the Abuja-based legal firm Law Corridor.
Justice Iyanna, in granting the application, ordered “an injunction restraining the defendant (Do2dtun), either by himself, his agents, associates, representatives, or anyone acting on his behalf, from making any malicious, threatening, or defamatory posts directed at the complainant (D’banj) on any social media platform (such as Twitter, Instagram, etc.) or in the news media, pending the hearing and resolution of the main case.”
Additionally, the court instructed that the Force Intelligence Bureau’s Deputy Inspector of Police look into a criminal complaint filed by D’banj against Do2dtun and submit a report to the court in a fortnight (Two weeks).
It would be recalled that Do2dtun has repeatedly dragged the musician after alleging that Dbanj’s sister, whom he was married to, had denied him access to their kids.
