Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Center, Sam Adeyemi, has said that the appropriate thing to do in the allegation of rape levelled against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) by Busola Dakolo, wife of singer Timi Dakolo, is to seek for truth, justice, healing, and restoration for all involved.
In a statement he released on Monday, Pastor Adeyemi while empathizing with Busola Dakolo, said that rape is a crime which he can never be in support of.
He asked for patience while legal processes are instituted to unravel the truth.
Read his full statement below:
”My attention has been drawn to the allegations of rape made against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo by Mrs Busola Dakolo. These are, no doubt, serious allegations. Rape is a crime and I say a firm NO to rape.
As Christians, it is only appropriate for us to seek for truth, justice, healing, and restoration for all involved. The Bible instructs us to do this with humility (Galatians 6:1).
While these are still allegations, I emphatise with Mrs Dakolo and everyone that has been affected, and I pray God’s peace for them at this time.
While the allegations have been refuted, I hope there will be a process, legal or counseling, to establish the truth in these circumstances.
Meanwhile, let us pray for peace and strength for everyone hurting in this process, for the families of the accusers and the accused, and the Church.
