I don't quite understand what a BOV has to do with the banjo on a turbocharger? I hope you didn't run your turbocharger without oil?

Yes, a BOV has nothing to do with oil leaking from the supply/return lines of your turbocharger. Chances are you still did not remedy the problem. You are likely still leaking oil from the original location, it would be a good idea to remove the banjo bolt, clean all surfaces well, and perhaps replace the crush washers, assemble, torque properly.
