The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria on Thursday, August 23, 2019 declared its probe into the rape accusation by celebrity photographer, Busola Dakolo, against founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, inconclusive.
According to news reports, Emma Isong, the national spokesperson of the PFN, is quoted as telling journalists in Lagos that the probe was inconclusive because Fatoyinbo snubbed several invitations to meet the five-member investigating panel it set up on the matter.
Busola Dakolo, one his accusers and her husband, Timi Dakolo, a soul singer, appeared before the panel.
Mrs. Dakolo granted an interview to YNaija in which she recounted how Fatoyinbo raped her twice, when she was 16 years. In a 2-hour interview she recounts being attacked in her mother’s house and in his car.
Fatoyinbo’s initial reaction was to deny the allegations and threaten to commence criminal action against the Dakolos. But, after pressure from fellow Pentecostal leaders, he announced that he was taking a leave of absence from his church.
But, he never left the role of senior pastor of COZA, and now, he is back on the pulpit. On Sunday, August 4, 2019, Biodun Fatoyinbo launched his return to the pulpit by preaching about victories.
