Popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, and his wife, Busola, have been invited by the police, weeks after Mrs Dakolo accused popular pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, of raping her.
The Dakolos have been asked to report at the Police Command Headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday as part of an “investigation of a criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief, and threat to life”.
The singer shared copies of the letter dated July 18 served to himself and his wife on his Instagram handle but has since deleted them. The letters said they are to report at the police station on Wednesday, July 23.
Mrs Dakolo had alleged that Mr Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion raped her as a teenager while she attended the church in Ilorin.
It is however unclear if the police invitation was related to Mrs Busola’s sexual assault claims since it was not stated in the letter.
Mr Dakolo had earlier alerted his Instagram followers on Saturday that some police officers forced their way into his Lekki, Lagos home, and attempted to whisk them away.
The singer has also accused Mr Fatoyinbo of “bribing investigating officers to delay summons.”
The singer wrote, “Our lawyers had told us to get ready for this letter. We have long been ready for your intimidation and dirtiness. For your Ilorin methods and underhand tactics. A pastor? Bribing investigating officials to delay summons? Paying dirty bloggers to fabricate things that cover the truth, going to the IG’s people under dark to force this case to be posted to Abuja? Rubbishing the legal and criminal system?
“And sending a bus load of armed policemen and shady men lying in waiting to intimidate my wife and children today, forcing their way into my home. Is that how the real police deliver a letter? This is the best you can do?
“This is why all the hurting women and families haven’t come against you. You picked the wrong one and you picked the wrong time. Nigerians are more awake than you think.
