The Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has detained D’banj, a Nigerian singer, on suspicion of fraud.

On Wednesday, news outlets claimed that D’banj had been arrested by the ICPC after he repeatedly declined requests to explain his involvement in the alleged misappropriation of money for the N-Power project.

The Social Investment Programmes (SIPs) established by the Muhammadu Buhari administration to address unemployment and advance social development include N-power.

The multi-award-winning artist was reportedly compelled to present himself by ICPC agents at the organization’s Abuja headquarters before being apprehended and imprisoned on Tuesday.

The story cited sources as saying D’banj had evaded ICPC summonses for weeks and claimed he had obligations abroad before being arrested.
According to the claims, D’banj and a few government officials reportedly planned to use fictitious beneficiaries in the N-Power payment program, with cash intended for beneficiaries being tracked to accounts connected to D’banj.

Reporters learned that D’banj had a protracted interview and was held after the ICPC denied his request for administrative bail.

After closing its investigation, the anti-graft agency may bring legal charges against D’banj for alleged fraud and financial misappropriation.
