Nigerians react to shocking rape allegations against COZA Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo



The internet is still abuzz with the shocking revelation released by wife of sensational singer, Busola Dakolo about controversial founder of COZA, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo. Busola Dakolo is accusing the clergyman of raping her twice.

This is not the first time Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo is in the news for sexual abuse allegations. In 2013, we first heard from Ese Walter, who shared how the pastor exploited her sexually. After the allegation, the church released a statement, promising a robust reply. It’s six years later, and we still wait.

Singer Timi Dakolo, at the end of May 2019 (and 2018, too) dropped a cryptic post on his Instagram, referencing a pastor who has been using his position to sexually abuse women. Although the pastor was unnamed, the post made it a little clear that the pastorin question was Pastor Biodun.

Now Busola Dakolo, photographer and Timi Dakolo’s wife, sat with Chude Jideonwo to share how the pastor allegedly raped her before she was even in the university, and the church was still in Ilorin.

She was 17, in the choir. He was the senior pastor. He was a father figure to her. One morning, he allegedly arrived at her home to rape her. And that was only the first time.

“You should be happy I’m the one that did this to you,” the pastor allegedly said. “You should be happy a man of God disvirgined you.”

It’s wild.

The church is yet to make a statement about the controversy. Here’s what Nigerians are saying about it on social media:


I love to read, write and TRAVEL!!! The media space is my canvas to paint the truths of our brands and the stories of our Nigerian culture. I love a good book any day because with them I can travel to spaces that are perfect in their frame.
