Recall that Busola had in June accused the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping her at 18.

An allegation which the pastor has since denied. However, the story took another direction on Saturday when armed Police officers stormed the residence of Dakolos to invite them to answer questions on alleged falsehood.

Moreover, Timi Dakolo frowned at the visitation as he raised alarm that Police wanted to intimidate his family.

In view of the above therefore, the IGP instructed DIG to take charge of the case.  According to a statement in Abuja by the Force Spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, the DIG is also expected to take over the investigation of the complaint made by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo against the Dakolos.

The DIG, as part of investigation, will also provide a personal supervision to all parts of the investigation to ensure justice and fair-hearing to all the parties, with each case being treated purely on its merit.
