The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed that its operatives on Saturday, served official invitation letters on Bisola and Timi Dakolo as part of investigation into allegations of rape made against COZA pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, in a press statement late on Saturday night said, “The invitation is sequel to an on-going police investigation touching on the wider and highly publicised case involving Bisola 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.”
He said members of the public should see the invitation 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 Muhammed Adamu 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,” the spokesperson further stated.
