He also said the ICPC didn’t trace any evidence of fraudulent activity to the singer.

Nothing incriminating was found on him. He was released on self-recognition. Right now, we expect the ICPC to give a letter of clearance to D’banj because, as we have always said, he is innocent of the charges brought against him,” he said.

A Source who spoke to Sahara Reporters said that “The musician is planning to speak out soon,”.
