Police in Abuja have reportedly reacted to the rape allegations made by Busola Dakolo against COZA pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Police commissioner Bala Ciroma speaking with Premium Times concerning Busola Dakolo’s rape allegations against Biodun Fatoyinbo, on Saturday, he said complaints from victims or witnesses or both will be needed by the police to proceed with rape charges.
“They should file a formal complaint,” Mr Ciroma said. “And then the police can see how to proceed from there.”
On Friday morning, a video interview of Timi Dakolo’s wife, Busola Dakolo went viral after she accused the founder and senior preacher of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping her multiple times, at the age of 16.
According to Busola, Mr Fatoyinbo came to her family residence in Ilorin and raped her, she lost her virginity to him in the process.
“Immediately I opened the door, he just pushed me, he did not say anything, he did not utter any word, he just pushed me to one of the chairs in my living room,” Mrs Dakolo told YNaija.
“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,’” Mrs Dakolo said.
She also claimed that Mr Fatoyinbo told her after the alleged rape that she should be grateful that it was a man of God who did that to her.
The second time within the same week, she claimed he raped her on a deserted road.
Pastor Fatoyinbo has however stated that he is innocent as he has never raped anybody before in his life. He also stated that the case will be settled in court.
