REVEALED: Why Timi Dakolo And Wife Was Invited — Police
The Nigeria Police Force says it is not arresting popular musician, Timi Dakolo, and wife, Busola, but just inviting them for questioning.
The clarification was made barely minutes after the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, called the attention of the Inspector-General of Police to the purported attempt to arrest the couple.
In a letter of invitation which was posted on his Instagram page, Dakolo alleged that the Police were attempting to arrest him and his wife for making “false allegations” against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly.
The letter immediately caused an outrage on social media, with many accusing the Police of taking sides with Fatoyinbo despite the pastor being accused of rape.
The letter, signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, IGP Special Tactical Squad, Force Headquarters, Abuja, Kofo Yusuf, reads, “The office is investigating a case of criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief and threat to life that your name was mentioned.
“You are kindly requested to interview the undersigned officer on 23/07/2019 by 1000hrs for fact finding, through DCP Ibrahim Agu with telephone number 08037864191.
“Acknowledge receipt. Accept my warmest regards, please.”
