Nigerians woke up today with news making round the internet that popular pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA, allegedly molested Busola Dakolo, wife of Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, severally when she was a teenager.
Busola made the allegations during a video interview with media mogul, Chude Jideonwo. According to her, she was raped by the pastor when she was still a teenager and a member of his church.
It should be noted that this is not the first time Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has been accused of such crime which he has constantly never addressed in the past.
However after Busola’s revelations, a Nigerian actor, Akah Nnani, who is a member of the pastor Fatoyinbo’s COZA church, has reacted to the development and has won the hearts of many people with what he wrote on his Instagram page.
“I woke up to several missed calls, and text messages. My friends know my relationship with @cozaglobal.
“Let me say this. COZA is my church. I love my pastor… But rape, is a serious issue. My stomach churns as I write this. I spoke with @timidakolo a week ago and tried to understand why he had taken a stance against my pastor. I had just come back from honeymoon when all my friends sent me his attacks to my pastor a few weeks ago.
“I sought to understand, not to attack. I was under so much turmoil too because this is my church, my pastor, and I cannot go around like nothing is happening and the church isn’t addressing anything or re-assuring the members.
“We must not see evil and cover it. We must not see evil and turn the other way. You all know me. I attack and speak out against corrupt political leaders every time. Well, this has hit home. Our leaders and our fathers must be held accountable. And they must deem us worthy to be answerable to. If we cannot clean in the church, forget it. We cannot clean the country. I am tired of hearing so much, so much rubbish about my church and leadership over the years especially cos of the industry I belong to, nothing passes our ears behind the scene.
“My pastor @biodunfatoyinbo has to say something this time. If the rest of the church does not need it, I need it. For my sake, sir… Speak on this.
I stand with @busoladakolo as she has spoken her truth. I stand with the body of Christ also. I ask that my pastor come out and speak his own truth.
“I am praying for the church. Please let us pray for both the Dakolo and the Fatoyinbo families. (wife and kids). In the end, if we need to, let us scatter the place… Then the truth will stand up.”
