Busola Dakolo, wife of soul singer, Timi Dakolo who has been having a running battle with the founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, over an alleged rape saga, has said she was forced by the police at gun-point to sign a document countering her rape allegations.
In an interview with UK Guardian, Busola narrated how the police officers forced her into their van and asked her to speak with their superior while pointing a gun at her.
She also narrated how she was handed a document containing allegations of ‘criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief and threat to life,’ to sign at gun point.
According to her, the contents of the letter were not leveled against Fatoyinbo but against she 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,” Busola said in the interview.
She added that the incident occurred after a tinted mini bus followed her while she was driving into her home in Lagos.
Continuing, Busola said:
“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.
The damage on the survivor is extremely terrible but the society, the church, keeps sweeping things under the carpet.”
