A Chief District Court of the Federal Capital Territory at Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, has restrained on-air-personality, Kayode Oladotun, popularly known as Do2dtun, from posting defamatory posts against singer Oladapo Oyebanjo, aka D’banj, on social media or any other platform.

The Judge, His Honour, Emmanuel Iyanna, gave the injunction on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, in the case with Motion No: MN/218/2023.

D’banj, through one of his lawyers, Toheeb Lawal from Abuja-based law firm, Law Corridor, had filed an application at the court for an injunction restraining Do2dtun from making malicious and defamatory posts against him on social media.

In granting the application, which has D’banj as the complainant and Do2dtun as the respondent, Iyanna granted “an order restraining the defendant (Do2dtun) either by himself, servants, privies, cohorts, representatives, or any person deriving authority from him from further making any malicious, intimidating or defamatory post directing at the complainant (D’banj) on any social media platform (X, Instagram, etc) or news media pending the hearing and determination of the substantive case”.

Also, the court ordered the Deputy Inspector of Police, Force Intelligence Bureau, to investigate a criminal complaint brought by D’banj against Do2dtun within two weeks and report back to court.

Do2dtun had for weeks embarked upon a social media onslaught against D’banj. The OAP was married to D’banj’s sister, Taiwo, in 2013, and the union produced two girls.

However, in November, 2021, Taiwo instituted a divorce proceeding before Justice A.I Akobi of Court 23, High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, in Suit Number: GWD/PET/25/2021, over alleged “unending reckless emotional abuse, forced abortion and vicious domestic violence,” by Do2dtun, which she claimed has adversely affected her health and general well-being.

Of late, Do2dtun made allegations that he was not allowed to see his daughter, but Taiwo said the claim by her ex-husband was false.

She said contrary to the allegations by her ex-husband over the custody of their children, the entertainer has access to their kids.

Taiwo recounted her ordeal in the marriage, such as domestic violence and emotional abuse, narrating how Do2dtun drove her to a hospital to have a forced abortion of a five-month pregnancy.
