According to the report, the celebrity photographer and wife of Timi Dakolo filed the complaint to the police, after she had accused the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) of rape while she was still underage.

The allegations led to a widespread protest at his church branches in Lagos and Abuja forcing the accused Pastor to step down from his church.

With her complaint, the Police has commenced investigation into the allegation, and we look to see how it all turns out.

Earlier today (4th July 2019), another woman, a former staff of Biodun Fatoyinbo, came out to detail how he raped her when she worked with the church as a legal guardian to Fatoyinbo’s children in a foreign country.

The woman who spoke anonymously in an exclusive interview with Chude Jideonwo, co-founder of Red Media said the pastor raped her in 2017.

In the new testimony, Fatoyinbo’s former employee who opted for her face to be blurred said, “I was living in one of the cities where the church was located. He was my boss, I did church and personal errands for them. It wasn’t like it was the first time that I was going to be at their house or go do something for them.

“He asked me to meet him at the house. It was a Thursday morning. It was supposed to be usual instruction. At this time, he was someone who I considered not just to be a mentor but a father figure. I was comfortable because I know that house.”

“Everything moved quickly from there and then he started trying to pull me to a hug and of course trying to kiss me which I found shocking.

“All I can remember saying is that ‘you can’t do that, you have to stop’. I had a navy blue high waist jean trouser on and he started to take that off.

“He flipped from the sweet amazing person who was my mentor to someone I could barely recognise and then switched back to someone who cared about how I was feeling.

“For the first time, I saw a completely different person from who we knew or who I thought I knew,” she added.
