Zion Assembly Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth, Biodun Fatoyinbo, is presently being questioned at the CID Headquarters of the Police Force in Abuja on claims of rape produced by Mrs. Busola Dakolo.
Remember that Busola Dakolo accused Biodun Fatoyinbo of exploiting her vulnerability and violating her twenty years earlier, an allegation he refused.
It has been collected that investigators have chosen to invite the pastor to confirm certain allegations after following other indications.
A team specifically entrusted with handling the case by the Inspector General of Police (IG) Mohammed Adamu through the DIG Investigation has been interrogating the pastor for several hours today.
It was found that the officers could detain the pastor if there were no guarantees that the police would not drop administrative bail.
Confirming the growth, Deputy Commissioner (DCP) Police spokesperson Frank Mba said it was too early to tell whether Fatoyinbo would be arrested, adding that only researchers could reach that choice on the basis of their results.
He said: “Yes, he is being interrogated at FCIID at the moment. We conducted a discrete inquiry. We are trying to reach one or two other pastors she allegedly intervened at that time.
“It was a deliberate investigative strategy to bring Fatoyinbo much later after we must have gotten other things. Some Nigerians were thinking we did not want to talk to him but that is not so.
“He is with us now and I cannot say if he will be detained nor not. Investigators will have to determine that. They might choose to detain him or grant him bail while investigation continues.
“We have the statement of Busola Dakolo already. She earlier made a statement to the police. Nigerians are assured that we will diligently investigate and conclude this case.”
