Busola, wife of soul singer Timi Dakolo, has revealed how she was raped as a teenager and what she was told thereafter by flamboyant Abuja based Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
According to the popular singer’s wife, she was a 16-year-old in the Divine Delight Club at Ilorin, Kwara State; the precursor to Fatoyinbo’s Commonwealth of Zion Assembly when she said was groomed and raped by the pastor.
Dakolo explained that as a member of the church, she was raped at two different times in a week by the pastor, adding that she lost her virginity to him before she turned 18.
She alleged that the pastor raped her for the first time at her parent’s home and at another time in a secluded road path.
Busola, now a photographer narrated “Fatoyinbo showed up at our house unannounced early on a Monday morning and I was still in my nightgown, as my mother had traveled with my sisters and were absent at service the previous Sunday.
“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 my living room.”
“I saw him, he was removing his belt, he just said: ‘keep quiet, do what I want you to do and you will be fine.”
“He didn’t say anything after, left to his car, returned with a bottle of Krest and forced me to drink it, probably as some crude contraceptive.”
She also said he told her, “You should be happy that a man of God did this to you.”
“I have kept quiet over the years. I had to come out to say this because another narrative was being said.”she added.
Dakolo said she spoke up because her husband put up a social media post on Instagram, accusing the Nigerian clergy of condoning rape and sexual assault.
This revelation comes after her husband, Timi, recently called out the pastor over his alleged sexual relationship with female church members, encouraging other victims who have gone through the experience to speak up.
Mrs. Dakolo is the second high profile person after Ese Walter, in 2013, to accuse Fatoyinbo of rape
