Busola, celebrity photographer and spouse of famous vocalist, Timi Dakolo, has asserted that cops compromised her with a weapon and constrained her to sign a letter blaming her and her better half for the criminal scheme.

The episode allegedly happened three weeks after she had documented an assault claim against the Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
“The charges against the Dakolos were brought by a special police branch in a counter-case filed by COZA, despite investigations stalling on the initial case,” The UK Guardian has reported.
Busola had blamed Fatoyinbo for explicitly ambushing her in her mom’s home around 20 years back when she was an adolescent and a minor.
She said the minister rehashed the demonstration at any rate once from that point.
The episode prompted the picketing of COZA by human rights activists, a continuation of which Fatoyinbo briefly ventured down.
The pastor denied Busola’s claims, saying, “Even as an unbeliever, I did not rape anybody.”
Fatoyinbo continued his obligations at COZA following a month of reporting his choice to venture down.
In a meeting with the UK Guardian, Mrs Dakolo said upon the arrival of her experience with the police officers who she said trailed her to her home in a silver Toyota and white minibus with tinted glass, she was approached to sign a letter.
She noticed that neither one of the vehicles had any Police markings.
As per Dakolo, a man showed up and advised her to escape the vehicle, get into the transport and address his manager. A solicitation she professed to have rejected.
Busola said that was when three men escaped the minibus and strolled towards her.
“One was holding a gun, and I noticed a second one holding a letter.
“They told me they were from IG’s (Inspector-General of Police) office in Abuja and that I needed to sign the letter and acknowledge it,” she said.
The letter purportedly contained claims of criminal scheme, deception, fiendishness and danger to life.
The UK Guardian did not profess to have spoken with any Police specialist over the rate. Or maybe, it expressed, “in light of the judgment of the conveyance of the Dakolos’ letters, the Nigerian Police Force put out an announcement saying: ‘A Police welcome letter isn’t synonymous with a warrant of capture, and should not be interpreted to be one.
“Rather, it is a polite investigative tool used in eliciting information voluntarily from parties to aid police investigations.’”
The medium added that the charges against the Dakolos were brought by “a special Police branch in a counter-case filed by Coza, despite investigations stalling on the initial case.”
