The invitation letter to the couple which came from the office of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Special Tactical Squad shows that Timi and Busola are to visit the Nigeria Police Headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday, July 23.
Timi Dakolo had raised an alarm on social media after spotting armed men at his Lagos residence.
Confirming the invitation in a statement sent to Naija News, spokesperson of the Nigeria Police, ACP Frank Mba stated that the invitation is sequel to an on-going police investigation touching on the wider and highly publicized case involving Bisola Dakolo, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and others.

“Rather, it is a polite investigative tool used in eliciting information voluntarily from parties to aid police investigations.
“Members of the public should see it as a legitimate act in line with the constitutional mandate of the police, which among other things include the investigation of all complaints brought before it.
“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP MA Adamu NPM, mni has appealed for calm and is 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.”
