In a follow up with the pending rape allegations against Biodun Fatoyinbo, the Nigeria police have stated that they didn’t receive Busola Dakolo’s petition.
A police officer at the force headquarters in Abuja, in an interview with The Nation, stated;
“We are not aware that she wrote any letter. If she tells us that the matter was already reported at Alagbon, we will confirm it and take up the matter from there but as it stands now, we are not aware of that.
“We are also not aware that the case is in court. We treated the first petition that came to us and what we did was just to invite, and the invitation is optional. If she likes, she can refuse to honour it or not and according to our men who were on ground yesterday, she said she will honour the invitation on Wednesday.
“We gave a date and she said the date was not convenient and she chose another date. If it is by force, will she give date?”
“We wrote because there was complaint and anybody who complains, constitutionally, we have the right to invite. It is left for the invited person to come or not.
“I don’t see the reason for making so much noise about this at all. I am not saying the matter at hand is not serious but I feel there are other important issues that need our attention as a nation. It is merely an invitation; it is not as if our operatives killed anybody.
“The operatives were from Abuja. We do not expect them to go on foot. Going with the bus does not mean anything.”
