RAPE ALLEGATIONS: ANOTHER VICTIM ACCUSES COZA PASTOR
By Dipo Omoware
It looks like rape allegations against under-fire pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, will not go away any time soon. Another alleged victim has come out with revelations detailing how she was allegedly raped by the COZA Pastor in 2017.
In an interview with YTV, the unnamed victim, who had her figure blurred, recounted her experience while she was an employee of the Fatoyinbos.
“It was shocking, maybe one of the most shocking things that I’ve had to experience because I have known his man for such a long time,” she said.
“I had known him not just as a mentor but as a spiritual leader. I’ve heard him preach, I’ve heard him talk God and there I was about to witness what would seem like the complete opposite of everything that I thought this person stood for,” she narrated.
Going further, the alleged victim said: “All I can remember is me saying: you can’t do that, you can’t do; you have to stop that. I remember telling him to stop continuously.”
The unnamed alleged victim insisted it never occurred to her to fight off her alleged attacker with a weapon.
“I remember trying to fight him off, it was a couch, I don’t know even if there was anything that I could grab, I don’t know if I thought to grab anything to be honest. Maybe I was too shocked, maybe,” she said.
Last week Friday, photographer, Busola Dakolo, wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo revealed she was raped twice as a teenager by the popular COZA pastor. Fatoyinbo has since denied the claims which also resulted in a protest last Sunday. The COZA Senior Pastor has since taken a leave of absence to allow church elders deal with the situation.
Pastor Fatoyinbo had earlier come out after the allegation by Busola Dakolo to say he had never raped anyone in his life.
“I have never in my life raped anyone even as an unbeliever and I am absolutely innocent of this.” He insisted.
