The wheel of justice is turning in the Busola Dakolo and Biodun Fatoyinbo rape scandal as Femi Falana emerges as the counsel to the Dakolos.
After the invasion of privacy by alleged armed at the Dakolo residence, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered that petitions from Biodun Fatoyinbo, and Mr and Mrs Timi Dakolo, be moved and investigated at the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Alagbon, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Thus the case will be taken away from Abuja which is the city of residence for the general overseer of COZA. There are reports that Fatoyinbo would prefer that the case is investigated in Abuja instead.
Reportedly, the Lawyer to the Dakolos, Mr Femi Falana, made the disclosure during a telephone interview with The PUNCH .
According to Falana, who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), he stated that the IG assured him that justice would be done in the matter.
The IG has ordered that the petition of the Dakolos and that of Pastor Fatoyinbo be consolidated. He has further directed that both petitions be investigated at the Force CID, Alagbon, Lagos since the Dakolos’ petition was first submitted in Lagos,
However, Nigerians on social media are reacting to the fact Femi Falana is representing the Dakolos.
Recall that Falana is a revered legal practitioner and human rights activist. He is also the father of popular musician cum actor Falz Tha Bahd Guy.
