Busola Dakolo has taken what many Nigerians have described as a bold step as she files a formal complaint yesterday July 4 to the Police against founder/senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, who she alleged had raped her in her teens.
Recalled that on Friday the 28th of June an emotional gripping tell-all interview by Chude Jideonwo with Busola Dakolo broke the internet. In the video, Busola narrated how she lost her virginity to Fatoyinbo via rape in 1999. She added that the incident since then had exposed her to ridicule and trauma.
Biodun Fatoyinbo, in response to the allegation, released a statement on his Instagram page, debunking every bit of it. He said, “I have never in my life raped anybody, even as an unbeliever, and I am absolutely innocent of this”.
At the time the revelation broke the internet, it evoked shock, backlash, criticism as well as apathy from Nigerians. Some became supporters of Mrs. Dakolo, some supporters of Biodun Fatoyinbo while some remained hanging on the fence, urging both parties to officially present the matter to the police for further investigation.
Now, It’s been gathered that with Mrs. Dakolo’s official complaint, the police has begun an investigation on the allegation.
