Busola Dakolo reveals how she was coerced to sign letter countering rape case


Busola Dakolo, the wife of Nigerian recording artist, Timi Dakolo has revealed how she was coerced by the Police to sign a letter countering an ongoing rape allegation.


The superstar photographer affirms that she was forced by Police at gunpoint to sign a document countering her rape allegations against Biodun Fatoyinbo. Fatoyinbo is the founder and senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) church.


Busola had alleged that the pastor had sexual relations with her when she was 16 in Ilorin.

In an interview with UK Guardian, Busola disclosed that she was forced into a van by some armed men. The men mandated her to speak with their superior officer in Pidgin language.


She also recounted how she was handed a document containing allegations of “criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief and threat to life” to sign.

Busola disclosed that the contents of the letter were not levelled against Fatoyinbo but 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,” Dakolo said.


Culture perpetrates cycle of abuse by men of God, says Busola Dakolo

The incident, she said, occurred after a tinted minibus followed her while she was driving into her home in Lagos.


On July 23, Dakolo and her husband were invited by a special tactical squad of the Inspector General of Police. They were invited for questioning over allegations of “falsehood and criminal conspiracy”. However, the same gesture was not extended to Fatoyinbo.


“Our culture doesn’t allow speaking of these sorts of things against anointed men of God,” Busola told The Guardian.


“They’d rather hide it, and the party that is being victimised tends to live with that self-blame. The damage on the survivor is extremely terrible. The society, the church, keeps sweeping things under the carpet.”
