I have never raped anyone in my life even as an unbeliever – Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo

Reverend Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Abuja, (COZA) has
denied rape allegations against him by Busola Dakolo, wife of popular
musician, Timi Dakolo and all previous such accusations.

Busola, in an interview, had said that Fatoyinbo raped her multiple
times as a teenager, when he started his church in Ilorin, Kwara State.

However, Fatoyinbo, in a statement totally refuted the allegation
against him by Busola saying he has never raped anyone in his life even
while he was an unbeliever.

The pastor also reacted to previous rape allegations against him by some
church members saying he had a policy of ignoring the rumours.

“Prior to now, we had adhered to our policy of ignoring rumours from
social media accounts as we knew that several statements had been made
to extort the church of money and myself through blackmail, harassment
and intimidation. We have refused time and again accede to their
request, which has infuriated them overtime, because of this, they  have
gotten more aggressive.

“Unlike previous statements where innuendos were used and there was no
direct mention of myself or the church, the recent video released on
YouTube has now made direct criminal allegations against me in the
interview granted by Busola Dakolo which are fallacious, non-existent
and which are all denied on every measure. As an individual and as a
church, we love and support people, and we will never condone any form
of abuse, rape, harassment, or intimidation of anybody. I have never in
my life raped anybody even as an unbeliever and I am absolutely innocent
of this.”

Fatoyinbo confirmed that Busola was a member of the church during the
early days of the church.

He also threatened to file a legal suit against Busola and YNaija, for
making such untrue and damaging accusations against his person.

“The leadership of the church and I have briefed our lawyers to commence
criminal and civil actions against all individuals making such false
allegations whether directly or by proxies. We will as a church pursue
every measure within the ambits of the law to bring the culprits to
justice,” Fatoyinbo concluded.
