Popular Nollywood actor, Akah Nnani, who has been a member of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, has publicly renounced his membership of the church after their senior pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, was accused of molesting Busola Dakolo, wife of popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo.
Busola Biodun had in an interview last week narrated how the pastor raped her in her mother’s house while she was still in secondary school and also tried to have sex with her when she came to the pastor’s house to try and help his wife.
Akah Nnani in a statement he released yesterday, said he believes Busola’s story and that he is ashamed to be called a member of the church.
Read his statement below;
After watching @busoladakolo account, I believed her 100%. But I was advocating for proper procedures of getting justice on this matter because of reasons best known to me. Again, I was still in shock too. I admit, I still am in shock. I’m also not a fan of jungle justice or court of pubIic opinion because I suffered it in secondary school wrongfully.
But after the behaviour of the church organisation today on this matter, not just the pastor, there is no need.
It is shameful for me to call myself a member of that church. A friend said to me “his moves are like that of Pablo Escobar”. I couldn’t help but agree. It has taken me time, but I am finally here.
We will say it for what it is. Pastor @biodunfatoyinbo is a rapist. There is a syndicate around him that protects him, and this involves Pastor Flo of Lagos Church, Pastor Wole of PH parish, church staff, other ministers and I dare say, his wife.
I am no longer a member of that church. I call on every one who has a conscience to boycott @cozaglobal.
Thank you to every Nigerian fighting. Thank you to every celebrity using their voice. You understand that your influence is not for you. Thank you. I dream strength from your voice.
We continue to pray for him that God will touch his heart to own up to his crimes and the light of God to expose everyone involved in the syndicate.
I stand with Busola Dakolo, I stand with every woman who has been raped. I stand against rape and rape culture. I stand against the rot in the church. @timidakolo I am 100% with you. #istandwithbusoladakolo
I rest my case on this matter now.
Let the place scatter!!
