The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed that its operatives on Saturday, 20th July, 2019, served official invitation letters on Bisola and Timi Dakolo.
A statement signed by Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank MBA said that the invitation is sequel to an on-going police investigation touching on the wider and highly publicized case involving Bisola Dakolo, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and others.
“It is important however to note that a Police Invitation Letter is not synonymous with a Warrant of Arrest, and must not be construed to be one. Rather, it is a polite investigative tool used in eliciting information voluntarily from parties to aid police investigations.
“Members of the public should see it as a legitimate act in line with the constitutional mandate of the police, which among other things include the investigation of all complaints brought before it,” it informed.
The statement further informed that the Inspector General of Police, IGP M.A. Adamu has appealed for calm, and is reassuring Nigerians that the Police Force under his watch will remain professional, impartial and unreservedly committed to the pursuit of justice in this case and all other cases before it.
