Police invites Fatonyibo for questioning over rape allegations
BIODUN Fatoyinbo, General Overseer of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), on Tuesday has been brought in by the police in Abuja for questioning over alleged rape of Busola Dakolo.
Dakolo, photographer and wife of musician Timi Dakolo had previously accused the preacher of having sexual knowledge of her as an underage teen while she was still a member of the church. Fatoynbo has since continued to deny the claim.
Frank Mba, Police Public Relations Officers, has confirmed the accused was in their custody and being interrogated.
“Yes, he is in our custody. We have done a whole lot of background investigations and spoken to a whole lot of people before now,” Mba said.
The PRO said that the police was not about to neglect or forget the case as some people have speculated. He claimed they were only trying to conclude investigations on their end before bringing Fatinyibo in.
“We were not in a hurry to bring him because we wanted to have enough background information that would be used in interrogating him. We have done an extensive investigation,” he added.
Mba said they might have to invite other people in as the case progresses.
