BREAKING: Pastor Fatoyinbo finally surrenders to police for questioning over rape allegations | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo, is currently being interrogated at the Police Force CID Headquarters in Abuja over the rape allegations made against him by Mrs Busola Dakolo.

Fatoyinbo is being interviewed by a team of four policemen led by Asst Commissioner of Police Adaku Uche Anya.

It is understood that Fatoyinbo’s protocol team was sent out of the Force Criminal Investigation Division (FCID) headquarters in Abuja.

Fatoyinbo is expected to be at the division for a while because Dakolo’s questioning was said to have taken about eight hours.

In a June interview, Dakolo who is a celebrity photographer had accused Fatoyibo of raping her when she was a teenager.

The pastor denied the allegations and subsequently refused to appear before the panel set up by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) to investigate the claim.

In a statement by Ademola Adetuberu, his spokesperson, Fatoyinbo said his legal team advised against appearing before the panel because the sitting might be partial.

“The legal advice was also premised on the press statement issued and personally signed by the PFN President, Bishop Felix Omobude, where our Pastor was publicly disowned. Based on the foregoing, we are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the PFN was already prejudiced and may not conduct an impartial session,” the statement read.

“According to the report, Rev. Omobude, whom we hold in high esteem, went further to crucify our Pastor without seeking to know his side of the story on the matter. With all due respect, we consider this a prejudicial position in dispensing justice and fairness.”

There were protests at the church’s branches in Lagos and Abuja after the allegations were made.

Fatoyinbo also stepped aside as the senior pastor of the church for investigations to be carried out, however, he has since returned to the altar.

  1. U said u were raped 20 years ago abi? Let me ironically agree with u that u were raped, but i hope u know 20 years is not 20 days neither is it 200 day. For 20 years u never mentioned it, so why bringing it up now. If u like the the pastor there are other ways to do that not by coming up with what happened 20 years ago if at all u are saying the truth. Ur husband that supported to even air it out is not a real man i guess he most be under u. Only God knows what u want to gain in this issue.
