Timi Dakolo, popular musician, has alleged that his life and that of his wife, Busola and their three children are under threat, following the rape allegations against the Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Speaking at a press conference in Lagos on Sunday, Dakolo alleged that things got worse when their residential address in the state was made public thereby making them susceptible to attacks.
Busola had few weeks ago disclosed details of how Fatoyinbo allegedly raped her when she was young.
Fatoyinbo, however, denied the allegation, saying he has never forced himself on any woman in his life.
However, Dakolo, while speaking yesterday, said: “I have noted with increasing alarm, how my life, my wife’s life and the lives of our children have been put at risk by unscrupulous persons.
“We have been followed, our home has been watched, people have been standing in corners pointing fingers at our home – we have been unable to do any work; the children have had to be explained to several times why they cannot go outside and play.”
“The AGP personally assigned the file and personally asked for an expedition action to investigate the case. This was before the YNaija video was released.
“We had since been to the police station on several occasions on the invitation of the police to respond to various questions in the course of the investigation” he further mentioned.
“We were therefore shocked to have been invited to Abuja when no visible action was taken to interview Mr Fatoyinbo.
“As far as we know, Mr Fatoyinbo has not been questioned on the strength of my wife’s petition even after several invitations by the police,” the singer said at the press conference.
Dakolo also disclosed his lawyer informed him that his petition and that of Fatoyinbo has been moved to Lagos.
“We have never threatened anyone on our lives. Rather, we are now the ones who feel threatened. That is why we have Falana & Falana Chambers representing us and they have reported this matter to the police.
“We receive the information from our lawyers, Falana & Falana Chambers, this morning that both our petition and the petition of Mr Biodun Fatoyinbo will be moved to Lagos. We acknowledge the effort of the Nigeria Police to ensure that our confidence in their impartiality, professionalism and good sense in this case is not shaken,” he added.
