Sam Adeyemi, Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, has expressed his thoughts on the rape allegation against Biodun Fatoyinbo, Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), saying the truth must be established.
Fatoyinbo was accused of rape by Busola, the wife of popular singer, Timi Dakolo. The embattled pastor has, however, denied all allegations levelled against him.
Making his position known on the matter via an Instagram post on Monday, Adeyemi said the allegation of rape was serious it was pertinent for the truth and justice to prevail for both the accuser and the accused.
He sympathised with Dakolo over her alleged predicament and called on the Christian community to pray for her, Fatoyibo and the church in general.
His post read: “My attention has been drawn to the allegations of rape made against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo by Mrs Busola Dakolo. These are, no doubt, serious allegations. Rape is a crime and I say a firm NO to rape.
“As Christians, it is only appropriate for us to seek for truth, justice, healing, and restoration for all involved. The Bible instructs us to do this with humility (Galatians 6:1).
“While these are still allegations, I empathise with Mrs Dakolo and everyone that has been affected, and I pray God’s peace for them at this time.
“While the allegations have been refuted, I hope there will be a process, legal or counseling, to establish the truth in these circumstances.
“Meanwhile, let us pray for peace and strength for everyone hurting in this process, for the families of the accusers and the accused, and the Church.”
