His supporters advised him to call the police. Sharing an update, he said they are police officers sent to deliver a letter of ‘invitation for questioning’ to him and his wife, Busola over the rape allegations.
According to him, ‘sending a busload of armed policemen and shady men lying in wait to intimidate my wife and children today, forcing their way into my home? Is that how the REAL police deliver a letter? This is the best you can do? This is why all the hurting women and families haven’t come against you?’.
On a note he shared on his Instagram, he said;
A pastor? Bribing investigating officials to delay summons? Paying dirty bloggers to fabricate things that cover the truth, going to the IG’s people under dark to force this case to be posted to Abuja? Now this an investigation in Abuja, when you haven’t answered to the rape case against you in Lagos? Rubbishing the legal and criminal system?
He made it clear he is prepared for the case and will fight for his wife and children
