Busola Dakolo, wife of popular singer, Timi Dakolo, who alleged that the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, had raped her at a tender age of 16, has formally lodged a complaint to the police.
It was found that the authorities are starting an investigation into the allegation with their formal complaint.
This is coming after the said pastor was also accused by another lady yesterday of raping her. The lady who pleaded anonymity in an interview with Y!Naija said the incident happened in 2017 at the pastor’s house.
She said she was a COZA worker who worked directly with the pastor and a church member. She said that on a Thursday morning, Fatoyinbo asked her to visit his home to obtain instructions and run an errand.
She stated: “He was my boss. I worked with him. Sometimes, I had to run errands for them. So it was not the first time that I was going to be at their house.
I was there sitting on the couch with him and he started addressing something that had to do with church.
“Everything moved quickly from there. I had known him as a spiritual leader and I was about to witness the opposite of everything that I thought he stood for. I was too shocked. It was a couch. I didn’t know whether I should hold on to something. I remember telling him continuously, ‘You can’t do that, you can’t do that.’”
Meanwhile, just after Timi Dakolo debunked claims of Pastor Fatoyinbo officiating his wedding to Busola, Pastor Yemi Davids of Global Impact Church has also confirmed that the couple got married in his church.
Pastor Yemi Davids, who also revealed that he has been privy to some personal struggles Busola has had over the years, stated that what she said is her truth and should be honored even though there was a denial.
Davids who stated that he supports any process that will bring justice, healing and resolution in the matter, wrote: “I feel the need to do this as a husband, father and pastor. @busoladakolo got married from our church to @timidakolo and as a friend to the family, I have been privy to some of the personal struggle Busola has had over the years, based on the details she expressed at the recent interview. This is her truth and it should be honored.
“I commend her for her bravery and I pray this helps her healing process. I also noticed that there was a denial of the allegation. It is important that the truth comes out. Rape is a serious offense and it is unacceptable. A process that unveils the truth in this hurtful situation in the body must begin immediately. We, leaders, must be accountable and I support her efforts to arrive at justice, healing and resolution on this matter.
