Pastor Fatoyinbo announced a leave of absence from the pulpit on Monday, four days after he was accused of rape by Bukola Dakolo, wife of soul singer Timi Dakolo.

“The power of Social media. Thank you, everyone, for sending out a loud and clear message demanding for accountability and justice for Mrs Dakolo,” Askia wrote.

“This is a small victory for her and all others who suffered rape. We can only push on for the law to take its full course from here on, towards an indictment or exoneration.

“Either way, her voice was heard. Thanks to you all.”
