SINGER Timi Dakolo has accused Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (Coza) founder Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of bribing security officials to cover up his crimes after his wife Busola accused the clergyman of raping her.
Earlier this month, Pastor Fatoyinbo was accused by Busola, of raping her in Ilorin years ago and the media attention the case has attracted has forced him to stand down as Coza’s general overseer. Since then, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has launched an investigation into the matter but the situation between both parties has turned sour over recent weeks.
Yesterday Timi took to his Instagram page to raise the alarm about how Pastor Fatoyinbo bribed officials investigating the alleged rape case and consistently harassed his family. He however, threatened to protect his family no matter the cost while declaring war with the Coza pastor.
Timi said he would defend his family from the unrelenting attack of a weak man who thinks he can use money and power to cover for all of his crimes. Adding that some strange men had been spotted outside his home, Timi added that they were later reported to be police officers sent to deliver a letter inviting him for questioning over alleged falsehood.
He added: “Our lawyers had told us to get ready for this letter, so we have long been ready for intimidation and dirtiness. A pastor bribing investigating officials to delay summons, paying dirty bloggers to fabricate things that cover the truth, going to the inspector-general’s people under darkness to force this case to be posted to Abuja?
“Sending a bus load of armed policemen and shady men lying in wait to intimidate my wife and children today, forcing their way into my home? Is that how the real police deliver a letter? This is why all the hurting women and families haven’t come against you
“If it’s a fight you want, it’s a war you will get as I will expose your filthiness under the guise of Christianity, every single thing. I will fight for my wife and my children, it’s the promise I made with my life and one I intend to keep.
Over the weekend, the Nigeria Police Force invited Mr Dakolo, for questioning over a case bordering on criminal conspiracy and falsehood. In the letter signed by deputy commissioner of police, Kolo Yusuf, Mr Dakolo is expected to report for questioning on July 23.
