The Nigeria Police Force says it has forwarded the alleged rape case of the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo, to the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation at the Federal Ministry of Justice.
The NPF said this in a letter addressed to Lagos-based photographer, Busola Dakolo, who is also the wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo.
In the letter signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Administration at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, the police said the DPP would study the case file and then give advice.
The letter read in part, “I am directed to inform you that the Force Criminal Investigation Department had concluded its investigation and forwarded the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution of the Federal ministry of justice for legal advice and further necessary action.’’
Mrs Dakolo had last year accused Fatoyinbo of raping her in Ilorin, Kwara State in 1999 while she was still a teenager.
The cleric, however, denied the allegations.
The scandal sparked a series of reactions last year which led to the pastor stepping down for several weeks.
