Police: We sent invitation to Busola, Timi Dakolo, nothing else
The Nigeria Police Force has refuted wrong narratives giving to armed men seen at Timi Dakolo residence yesterday, confirmed that its operatives served official invitation letters on Busola and husband.
Confirming this, Police Spokesman, Frank Mba, in a on Saturday night, said the letter was sequel to an ongoing police investigation involving Busola Dakolo, COZA founder, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and others.
Mba noted that the invite was not synonymous with a Warrant of Arrest, and must not be misconstrued to be one.
In his words: “Rather, it is a polite investigative tool used in eliciting information voluntarily from parties to aid police investigations”, Mba noted.
“Members of the public should see it 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, IGP MA Adamu NPM, mni 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.”
Recall, Dakolo raised the alarm that armed men believed to be security operatives were in front of his house located in Agungi, Lagos.
Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, in a tweet, reacted about Dakolo’s alert and called on the IGP to act.
“ATTENTION: INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE #SayNoToRape #JusticeForRapeVictims #SayNoToIntimidation”, she tweeted.
