Armed men on Saturday, July 20, stormed the Lagos residence of Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo.
Naija News reports that the singer disclosed this on social media network, Instagram.
The armed men, who were described as “strange men” by Mr. Dakolo, stormed his residence with a white Toyota Hiace bus.
Dakolo shared a photo of the said incident on his Instagram page with the caption: “STRANGE MEN AT HOUSE,…WITH GUNS.”
Though Naija News cannot clearly state if the armed men are officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Amnesty Int. Nigeria, on the other hand, claims the armed men are policemen.
“Disturbing reports of armed Nigeria Police @PoliceNG allegedly laying siege at the home of musician Timi Dakolo & his wife Busola Dakolo” the Human Rights organisation tweeted but later deleted the tweet.
Amnesty Int. Nigeria added in another tweet that the “Security and safety of Timi & Busola Dakolo rest with Nigerian authorities.”
Security and safety of Timi & Busola Dakolo rest with Nigerian authorities.

Meanwhile, Naija News reports that the incident is coming weeks after Busola Dakolo, the wife of Timi, accused Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) of raping her.
