Amb. Chibuzor Patrick, President and Group CEO of Meljenstin Group of Services, a renowned reformist has reacted to the rape saga between Fatoyinbo and Mrs. Timi Dakolo.
Busola Dakolo, the wife of musician Timi Dakolo, had told YNaija in an interview how she was raped multiple times by Fatoyinbo when she was a teenager by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the founder and senior preacher of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA). She said she was 16 years old at the time.
Although Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo denied the allegation before taking leave of absence from the pulpit.
Chibuzor Patrick’s reaction: “Rape is what you cannot understand and you cannot judge, it is not about the church alone it is about individuals, so many people are guilty, the trauma of rape is deep, it lives inside the person who was raped, it must have taken the courage of a supporting husband or family of a raped victim to open up.”
She warns: “Let all rapists know that what they are doing is wrong, it doesn’t matter if it is twenty years ago…people should speak up to correct this menace it doesn’t matter your personality, it is a war we must win against the perpetrators.” She concluded.
