A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr Femi Falana, has said his chambers is not holding brief for Mr Timi and Mrs Busola Dakolo.
The human rights lawyer noted that he only intervened when the family expressed fear over their petition.
Falana clarified his position in the matter in a text message to The PUNCH on Tuesday.
Our correspondent had reported that the lawyer said the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had ordered the transfer of the case between the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo, and the Dakokos to Lagos.
He said this was because the Dakolos were the first to submit a petition to the police over the rape allegation against Fatoyinbo.
He said the IG also asked that the petitions of the two parties be consolidated.
