The allegation against senior pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, by Busola Dakolo, a celebrity photographer and wife of Timi Dakolo, has provoked the ire of Nigerians on social media .
In a viral video of an interview with Chude Jideonwo of YNaija, Busola gave an explosive details of how the pastor had canal knowledge of her as a teenager in her home in Ilorin.
In the chilling revelations, Busola said: “Immediately I opened the door of my house in Ilorin, he just pushed me, he didn’t say anything, he didn’t utter any word, he just pushed me to one of the chairs in my living room.
“I saw him, he was removing his belt, he just said: ‘keep quiet, do what I want you to do and you will be fine.”
This revelation by the wife Timi Dakolo has stirred outrage and uproar across social media platforms and many users are feasting on the expose.
While a segment of users want him “castrated and thrown in jail” others are not pleased that Busola had to wait this long to break her silence.
“If the Allegations by Busola Dakolo, Timi Dakolo’s wife should be taken up and Proven to be true, The Coza Pastor should be Castrated and thrown in Jail…. Anyone that Says “Touch not my anointed”, should also be thrown into Jail for at least 10 years with Hard labour,” said a user.
“Busola Dakolo should have reported COZA Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo to the elders in the church about it and not to the public or her husband. Says a religion fanatic. I worship at COZA and not the Pastor” says a fool. Judge not the Pastor so you don’t be judge, says a hypocrite,” another user wrote.
Celebrities also had a thing to say concerning the issue.
Bankole Wellington, Nigerian singer better known as Banky W, also commended her courage in speaking out and offered his support.
‘This was so hard to watch. I am so sorry you went through this nightmare. But I am SOOOO PROUD of you for sharing your truth. You didn’t speak up for yourself alone, but for all the voiceless victims who have suffered similar horrors at the hands of predators like him,” he wrote.
“Sending love, light and support your way. We are standing by you and @timidakolo. God bless, protect and strengthen you. Stay strong. You are incredible. #Unbroken #Unchained#iStandWithBusola.
Funmi Iyanda, media personality, also offered her support and called for the prosecution of the pastor.
“I believe Busola Dakolo. Every word she uttered. There are many layers of power, politics, manipulation and crime woven through her brave revelations. I expect that Pastor Biodun will go to jail or whatever the equivalent of that is in Nigeria now.” she said.
