Rape: Busola Dakolo alleges police forced her to sign invitation letter at gunpoint
Wife of popular singer, Timi Dakolo, and celebrity photographer, Busola has alleged that police operatives forced her to sign their invitation letter at gunpoint.
Dakolo made the allegation in an interview with UK Guardian.
According to her, the invitation letter contained allegations different from her rape accusations, which she claims have been filed with the police.
Dakolo said that the allegations contained in the letter were ‘criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief and threat to life’.
She said: “One was holding a gun and the second, a letter.
“They told me they were from IG’s (inspector general of police) office in Abuja and that I needed to sign this letter and acknowledge it.”
It could be recalled that Busola recently accused the senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly [COZA], Biodun Fatoyinbo, of raping her when she was 16 years.
The accusation led the accused randy pastor to step down while the issue is being investigated.
Shortly after the rape accusation, ElombahNews reported on July 20 how a tinted minibus followed Mrs. Dakolo into her compound while she was driving home in Lagos and raided their house.
The policemen stormed the Lagos residence of Timi Dakolo in a van with number plate BR932KSF.
The Number was scanned and confirmed to be Government registered vehicle from the Inspector General of Police Special Tactical Squad.
Defiant, on July 22, Timi Dakolo in another report warned Fatoyinbo that he will “return fire for fire” to him if he continues to harass his family.
On July 23, Dakolo and her husband received police invitation letters while the accused, Pastor Fatoyinbo was not.
Speaking on why the police took such drastic measure, she said:
“Our culture doesn’t allow speaking of these sorts of things against anointed men of God. They’d rather hide it, and the party that is being victimized tends to live with that self-blame,” she said.
“The damage on the survivor is extremely terrible but the society, the church, keeps sweeping things under the carpet.”
Fatoyinbo, in the meantime, has returned to the pulpit on August 4 and has resumed pastoral activities.
