Famous Nigerian On-Air personality, Kayode Oladotun, popularly known as Do2dtun, has been ordered by a Chief District Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Wuse Zone 2, Abuja, to refrain from making slanderous comments against musician, Oladapo Oyebanjo, also known as D’banj, on social media or any other platform.

The court has also directed the Force Intelligence Bureau’s Deputy Inspector of Police to look into a criminal complaint filed by D’banj against Do2dtun and provide a report to the court in a fortnight.
