The Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, Police Command has called on members of the public to help provide information on a party allegedly attended by music star, D-Banj, amid the spread of coronavirus in Nigeria.

In an 18-second video that circulated on the internet on Sunday, the musician, whose real name is Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, was seen performing at a crowded party inside a house, without face masks and social distancing rule clearly flouted.

The clips were said to have emerged from a party he attended on Saturday in Abuja.
