The Lagos state Police Command has stated that the case involving the death of D’banj’s son, Daniel Oyebanjo, is yet to be reported to them. The little boy who recently celebrated his one year birthday died after he drowned in a swimming pool in the family’s residence in Ikoyi, Lagos.
According to a police source, even though the case is yet to be reported to them, they still have to carry out investigation.
“Although the matter had yet to be reported, the police will still have to investigate the circumstances that surrounded the death. It is sad news and one can only imagine the pain the family is going through now,” the source said.
The Lagos state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, in a statement, said the state CP, Edgal Imohimi, was saddened by the death.
“The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Edgal Imohimi, on behalf of officers and men of the Lagos State Police Command, wishes to commiserate with the family of Mr and Mrs Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo aka D’banj, on the death of their one-year-old son, Daniel (Jnr) Oyebanjo… The entire command shares their pain.”
The police also revealed that a delegation sent to D’banj’s house on a condolence visit didn’t meet anyone at the residence. They however await the mourning period to be over before they expect the singer’s family to formally report the case to the police.
“Although a delegation from the command, led by the Divisional Police Officer, Ikoyi division, CSP Mustapha N’Abba, who were at the Ikoyi home of the Oyebanjos on a condolence visit, did not meet anyone at home, it is expected that when the mourning period is over, the family will formally report the circumstances that led to the unfortunate death of little Daniel to the police.”
