Veteran Nigerian celebrities have commended Busola, wife of singer, Timi Dakolo, for speaking up about her alleged rape experience.
It would be recalled that Mrs Dakolo had in an interview with Y Naija, an online media alleged that she was raped by the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Abiodun Fatoyinbo.
Don Jazzy, Toke Makinwa, Nse Ikpe Etim, Wana Udobong, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu were among celebrities that commended the celebrity photographer for boldness.
In her social media post on June 28, 2019, Mrs Dakolo revealed some shocking things about the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly pastor.
Below are some of the shocking things she revealed
Firstly, the celebrity photographer explained that she used to live in Ilorin with her family and she had gone home for the holiday when her sisters told her about a new gathering that was like an Hip-Hop church called the Divine Delight Club where young people gathered to worship God. Her sisters had convinced her to attend the gathering even though she had reservations about their style of worship.
Secondly, she further explained that she had gotten close to Pastor Biodun and he became like a mentor and a father figure whom she trusted. She revealed that he came to her house in Ilorin one Sunday morning when she was alone with one of her sisters. Her mother had travelled with her junior sister. Busola explained that their house was a big duplex whereby someone upstairs would not know what is going on in other parts of the house. Explaining the ordeal with Pastor Biodun, she claimed that he came to the house that Monday morning, knocked on the door and said he was the one. When she opened the door, she claimed the pastor did not utter a word but just pushed her to one of the chairs around.
“Immediately I opened the door, he just pushed me. He didn’t say anything. He didn’t utter any word. He just pushed me to one of the chairs in the living room and I saw him removing his belt. I was like what…? He said keep quiet, do what I want you to do and you’ll be fine,” Busola said.
She further explained that when she tried to react, he covered her mouth and had his way. She even added that he tried to force his way several times that blood even dropped on the floor.
Speaking further, Busola said after the pastor had allegedly carried out his intention, he left and came back with an already opened bottle of Krest, a soft drink, and made her drink it. She then explained that Pastor Biodun told her she should be happy a man of God did what he did to her.
While narrating what happened the incident,Busola explained that she still attended the church the following day with her sisters, even though she was scared to tell them what had happened to her due to the fact that the pastor used to preach about his past as a cult member.
According to her, Pastor Biodun’s topic for that Sunday service was God’s grace as he kept explaining that the grace of God covers all sins no matter what a person has done.
After the church service Busola recounted that after the service, one of the protocols came to her and explained that Pastor Modele, Biodun’s wife, had requested for her help to take care of their newborn daughter. Obviously surprised, Busola said she turned to her sister and asked why the pastor’s wife would ask for her help and her sister allayed her fears saying it was normal for church members to go and help the pastor at home occasionally.
But just as she was still discussing with her sister, she said Pastor Biodun came and said he would come and pick her to the house soon.
Busola explained that the pastor tried all he could to make her sleep alone in the guest room but she refused and she insisted on sleeping in their master’s bedroom with his wife and their baby. The next day when she was cleaning, she claimed that pastor Biodun smacked her backside and told her nobody refuses him. When it was time for her to go home, the pastor reportedly told his wife he was going out and said he would drop Busola at home. Busola claimed she tried to insist on going by herself but the pastor refused. The lady explained that as they were driving to her house, the pastor took a detour and drove to an isolated place on the road where he molested her the second time. She explained that while he was driving to the secluded spot, he kept on muttering angrily about how she thwarted his plans the night before and how he owns her. Busola claimed the pastor dragged her out of the passenger side and dragged her to the bonnet of the car where he abused her the second time.
As at the time of filing this report, there has not been any official response from the pastor denying or confirming the allegation.
