COZA rape scandal: Police invite Timi, Busola Dakolo for interrogation
Police operatives on Saturday stormed the residence of soul singer, Timi Dakolo and his wife, Busola for interrogation over alleged falsehood.
The invitation letter which was delivered at the Lekki residence of the Dakolos around 6pm, may not be unconnected with allegation of rape by Busola against founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

Our lawyers had told us to get ready for this letter. We have long been ready for this type of institutionalized intimidation and dirtiness. Investigating officials have frustrated as a result of underhand delay? Dirty bloggers are fabricating things that cover the truth , going to the IG's people under dark to force this case to be posted to Abuja? Now this: a false investigation in Abuja when our own petition filed since June has not been answered and NO INVITATION HAS BEEN MADE TO THE ACCUSED IN A RAPE CASE????! NOT ONE MOVEMENT TOWARDS JUSTICE??? Rubbishing the legal and criminal system ? And sending a bus load of questionable armed "policemen" and shady men lying in wait to intimidate my wife and children today, forcing their way into my home? Is that how the REAL police delivers a letter ? This is best you can do? This is why all the hurting women and families havent come out with HORRIBLE THINGS DONE TO THEM???!! You picked the wrong one and you picked the wrong time. Nigerians are more awake than you think . I will fight for my wife and my children -it's the promise I made with my life and one I intend to keep .I will defend them from the unrelenting attack of a weak man who thinks he can use money and power to cover for all of his crimes. Like I said ,we have since been ready . GIVE US THE FIRE, THEN WATCH ME WORK!
TheNewsGuru recalls that Busola had alleged that Fatoyinbo raped her at 16 in Ilorin while attending his church.
The allegation led to the stepping down of the glitzy Abuja-based preacher pending conclusion of investigation.
The invitation letter signed by Deputy Commissioner of Police IGP Special Tactical Squad Force Headquarters, Abuja asked the couple to report for interrogation on Tuesday by 10am.
The couple was accused of “criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief and threat to life.”
There was a mild drama during delivery of the invitation letter as Timi raised alarm on Instagram with the social media awash with alleged invasion of their residence by police operatives.
In his reaction, the ‘Iyawo mi’ crooner affirmed that he will fight with his life for his wife and children.
According to him:”I will fight for my wife and my children -it’s the promise I made with my life and one I intend to keep .I will defend them from the unrelenting attack of a weak man who thinks he can use money and power to cover for all of his crimes.
Like I said, we have since been ready .GIVE US THE FIRE, THEN WATCH ME WORK!” his message read in part.
