The Lagos Police command have confirmed that it served official Invitation letters on Busola and Timi Dakolo on Saturday but not for the sake of an arrest.
In a statement on Sunday, the police, however, stated that the letters are not synonymous with a Warrant of Arrest, and must not be construed to be one.
It explained that “rather, it is a polite investigative tool used in eliciting information voluntarily from parties to aid police investigations,” it said after the singer had alleged that “strange men with guns” stormed his home on Saturday – a move he described as an act of “institutionalized intimidation”.
The Police, however, urged members of the public to see it as a legitimate act in line with its constitutional mandate, which among other things include the investigation of all complaints brought before it.
The Inspector-General of Police, IGP MA Adamu, also appealed for calm, reassuring Nigerians that the Police Force under his watch will remain professional, impartial and unreservedly committed to the pursuit of justice in this case and all other cases before it.
