The Nigerian Police Force has confirmed that its operatives on 20th of July 2019 served official invitation letters to Bisola and Timi Dakolo. The investigation touching on the wider and highly publicized case involving Bisola, Pastor Abiodun 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 regarded as one. Rather it is a police investigative tool used in eliciting information voluntarily from parties to aid police investigation.
Member of the public should see it as a legitimate act inline with the constitutional mandate of the police which among other things include the investigation of all complaints brought before it.
The Inspector General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu NPM has appealed for calm and he is reassuring Nigerians that the Police Force under his watch will remain professional, important and unreservedly committed to the pursuit of justice in this case and all other cases before it.
