Busola Dakolo has cried out about being forced at gunpoint by the police to sign a letter countering her rape allegations against COZA Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
According to the photographer who is married to singer Timi Dakolo, some armed men forced her into a van where she was ordered to speak with their superior officer in Pidgin language.
Busola also claimed that the document she was forced to sign contained allegations of “criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief and threat to life” levelled against her and her husband.
“One was holding a gun and the second, a letter. They told me they were from IG’s (inspector general of police) office in Abuja and that I needed to sign this letter and acknowledge it,” Cableng reported she said.
The mother of three said she was followed by a tinted minibus while driving home before she was eventually forced into the van.
She also revealed that she and her husband were invited for questioning over allegations of “falsehood and criminal conspiracy” on July 23 by the special tactical squad of the inspector general of police (IGP), adding Fatoyinbo was never invited.
“Our culture doesn’t allow speaking of these sorts of things against anointed men of God. They’d rather hide it, and the party that is being victimized tends to live with that self-blame,” she said.
“The damage on the survivor is extremely terrible but the society, the church, keeps sweeping things under the carpet.”
Recall that Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo returned to the pulpit on August 4, weeks after stepping down following a protest.
