The last has not been heard of the rape allegations against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), by Busola Dakolo, as she recently revealed that she was forced to sign letter countering her claim against the ‘man of God’ at gunpoint.
Busola said in an interview with The Guardian UK that she had signed her invitation letter from the Nigerian Police on the rape case with Biodun Fatoyinbo at gunpoint after she was trailed to her home by gun-wielding policemen. The photographer and wife of popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo explained that the incident happened three weeks after she had filed a rape case against the senior pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
She had accused the pastor of raping her in her family house when she was 16 years old and on the bonnet of a car a few days after. The rape accusation had caused the public to call for the pastor’s arrest, with several other concerned groups calling for him to step down as lead pastor of the church until the case is solved.
In her interview with the UK Guardian, Busola Dakolo said that she had been trailed home by policemen in a silver Toyota and white minibus with tinted glass that was not branded in police signs. She said a man approached her and told her to get into the bus to speak with her boss but she refused. She said three men then came out of the minibus to force her to sign the letter.
“One was holding a gun, and I noticed a second one holding a letter. They told me they were from IG’s (Inspector-General of Police) office in Abuja and that I needed to sign the letter and acknowledge it,” she said.
She also claimed that the letter contained allegations of “criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief and threat to life”.
The publication reports that the charges against the Dakolos were brought by “a special Police branch in a counter-case filed by COZA, despite investigations stalling on the initial case.”
The case is still ongoing and the pastor who initially stepped down from preaching at the church returned to the pulpit last week.
