Invasion Of Dakolo’s Residence: We Acted Legitimately – Police

Timi, Busola Dakolo

The police headquarters on Sunday confirmed that some of its personnel were at the home of Busola and Timi Dakolo to invite them for questioning.

According to police, “the invitation is sequel to an on-going police investigation touching on the wider and highly publicized case involving Bisola Dakolo, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, and others.”

Police, however, dispelled the fear of intimidation against the Dakolos, stating that it was only an invitation, not a warrant of arrest.

The statement reads in part: “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.

“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.”
