The Nigeria Police Force Headquarters, Abuja, has confirmed inviting Timi Dakolo and his wife, Busola Dakolo, for investigation, following the rape allegation earlier made against the senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo, by Busola Dakolo.
You may recall, that Busola Dakolo recently did an interview, where she alleged that Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo raped her many years ago as a young church goer, in his Ilorin Church.
The Police statement which was sent to TOS TV on Saturday night, July 20, reads: “The Nigeria Police Force is confirming that its Operatives today, 20th July, 2019, served Official Invitation Letters on Busola and Timi Dakolo. The invitation is sequel to an on-going Police investigation touching on the wider and highly publicised case involving Busola Dakolo, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, and others.
“It is important however, to note that a Police Invitation Letter is not synonymous with a Warrant of Arrest, and must not be construed to be one. Rather, it is a polite investigative tool used in eliciting information voluntarily from parties, to aid Police investigations.
“Members of the public should see it as a legitimate act in line with the constitutional mandate of the Police, which among other things include the investigation of all complaints brought before it.
“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, M. A. Adamu, NPM, mni, has appealed for calm, and is reassuring Nigerians that the Police Force under his watch will remain professional, impartial, and unreservedly committed to the pursuit of justice in this case and all other cases before it.
