The police have invited popular singer , Timi Dakolo , and his wife , Busola , a photographer , for questioning over allegation of rape.
The couple was asked to report to DSP Ibrahim Agu in Abuja on Tuesday for an “ interview” .
The Dakolos invitation by the force on Saturday may not be unconnected with the rape allegation by Busola against the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo .
Busola had alleged that Fatoyinbo raped her at 16 in Ilorin while attending his church.
Following the outrage and street protests that trailed the allegation , Fatoyinbo was forced to step down as the senior pastor of COZA .
The invitation letter signed by Deputy Commissioner of Police , IGP Special Tactical Squad, Force Headquarters , Kolo Yusuf , directed the couple to report for interrogation on July 23 by 10 am.
The couple was accused of “ criminal conspiracy , falsehood , mischief and threat to life . ”
The letter dated July 18 and addressed to Dakolo read in part, “ This office is investigating a case of criminal conspiracy, falsehood , mischief and threat to life in which your name was mentioned .
“You are kindly requested to interview the undersigned officer on 23/7 / 2019 by 10: 00hrs for fact – finding through DSP Ibrahim Agu . ’’
Reacting to the invitation , Dakolo in a post on Instagram said their lawyer had earlier asked them to get ready for the police invitation .
Without naming Fatoyinbo , Dakolo accused him of bribing investigators and engaging in other underhand tactics .
He wrote , “A pastor?
bribing investigating officials to delay summons ?
Paying dirty bloggers to fabricate things that cover the truth , going to the IG ’ s (Inspector – General of Police ) people under dark to force this case to be posted to Abuja .
“ Now this : A false investigation in Abuja when our petition filed since June has not been answered and no invitation has been made to the accused in a rape case ?
Not one movement towards justice ? Rubbishing the legal and criminal system ?
“ And sending a bus load of policemen and shady men lying in wait to intimidate my wife and children today (Saturday ), forcing their way into my home ?
Is that how real policemen deliver a letter ?”
The artiste vowed to fight for his wife and children, stressing that he would defend his family from “the unrelenting attack of a weak man who thinks he can use money and power to cover his crimes. ”
The Force spokesman , DCP Frank Mba, could not be reached for comment on Dakolo ’ s allegation that the police did not investigate his petition against Fatoyinbo submitted last month .
Calls to Mba’ s phone indicated that his line was unavailable .
He had also yet to respond to a text message on the invitation letter to the Dakolos as of the time of filing this report .
Also , Dakolo neither picked calls made to his mobile nor replied to the text message sent on Saturday .
