Fresh rape allegation emerges against COZA pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo
A former female member of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) has alleged that Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo also raped her while she was a staff of the church.
This comes less than a week after Busola Dakolo, wife of singer and songwriter, Timi Dakolo, accused Fatoyinbo of raping her about 20 years ago.
Although spoke anonymously with YNaija on Thursday, the medium that interviewed Mrs. Dakolo, the former staff said Pastor Fatoyinbo raped her sometime in 2017 at the pastor’s house though she joined the church in 2009 and steadily grew close to Fatoyinbo’s wife, Modele, who made her guardian over her children in a city outside the country.
On how the rape occurred, Pastor Fatoyinbo asked her to come to his house outside Nigeria on the particular day (a Thursday morning) to take some instructions and go for an errand but the scenario changed after he stopped discussing the church and grabbed her towards him.
“He was my boss. I worked with him. Sometimes I had to do errands for them. So it was not the first time that I was going to be at their house.
“I was there sitting on the couch with him and he started addressing something that has to do with the church.
“Everything moved quickly from there and then he started trying to pull me into a hug and started kissing me, which I found shocking. I had known him as a spiritual leader and I was about to witness the opposite of everything that I thought he stood for.
“I was too shocked. It was a couch. I don’t know whether I should hold on to something. I remember telling him continuously ‘You can’t do that, you can’t do that.’
“He just kept going. Took off my button and my trouser. And then he had his other hand holding me back to the couch. And another hand right inside my pants.
“I remember he kept saying, ‘Relax. Just relax.’ He didn’t flinch,” she said.
After the alleged rape, she said she continued to work for the church and Fatoyinbo’s family until July 2018.
The lady said Fatoyinbo apologised to her for the incident on two different occasions in 2018.
