Dakolo alleges plot to kidnap wife          


Timi Dakolo said armed men are trailing his wife and mother-of-two, Busola, with the view to abduct her.

The singer raised the alarm on Sunday on the heels of police invitation of Busola  at a press conference in Lagos.

Busola hit the headlines after she accused Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, of raping her twice while she was a teenager in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, sparking outrage agasint the controversial pastor and culminating in his stepping down as the church pastor.

Speaking, Dakola said that since his wife decided to seek justice over the rape allegation against their lives have been under threat.

According to him, “As a father and a protector of my home; I have decided to come out and speak publicly against this harassment, bully and maliciousness that we have received as law abiding citizens of Nigeria just because my wife decided to speak her truth and I believe her and stand by her.

“I will never leave her side and I will do my best to protect her. The good people of Nigeria who have shown us so much love deserve to know what is happening.
“On behalf of my family; I would like to share a few highlights especially about the attempt yesterday to abduct my wife or probably me if I was down-stair because the people that came to our house were carry guns.

“Nobody comes to drop letter with a vehicle that has tinted glasses and have men with guns that are trailing a car. When they followed my wife into the compound, someone said my Oga wants to see you in the bus. She said no, I don’t know your Oga, who are you?

“And they now said that they wanted to give us a letter. I have already seen the bus earlier, the bus had been parked on the street for a long time but I did not suspect anything, It did not cross my mind. As she came back from the road and was about to enter the compound, the bus followed her and blocked my gate. It is a sign that this people have been trialing and following her all the while.

“If she had not insisted that no I don’t know you, I cannot follow you, we now said Oga what do you want. You don’t just come into peoples’ compound and said you just came to drop letter with an armed man. It is not possible.”
