Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr Samuel Uche, has described as foolish the allegation against Biodun Fatoyinbo, founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) by Busola Dakolo.
In June, Dakolo, celebrity photographer and wife of Timi Dakolo, alleged that she was raped by Fatoyinbo at the age 18.
During in a recent interview with V.T.N Business Delight on Silverbird Television, the Methodist Prelate described the allegation as an attempt to blackmail and tarnish the pastor’s image.
According to him, “Some allegations are foolish. From my way of analysing things, there is no truth in such attempt.
“You say somebody raped you and after 16 years, you are out to report. What is wrong? Maybe you demanded money or you wanted some payment and the person is not able to give you, and then you chose to blackmail the person. Why do you punish somebody for a sin committed 16 years ago?
“Our lord Jesus Christ says any sinner that believes is forgiven. He called us and he said repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. How do you go and tarnish the image of a man who committed something some years ago. Is it relevant?”
