Pastor Yemi Davids “Busola Dakolo got married from my church and I knew of the rape”
The drama in the rape scandal involving Busola Dakolo, wife of Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo and COZA senior pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo keeps unfolding.
Recall back, last week when in an interview Busola Dakolo told a long story of rape done to her by the COZA senior pastor when she was 17. She alleged that he came to her parents’ house while they had travelled and raped her as her sisters were upstairs.
Since the airing of the interview, the Dakolos have been accused of wedding in the COZA church and being close to the senior pastor too. This time, Senior pastor of Global Impact Church, Pst. Yemi Davids, is speaking out against these claims. He wrote on his instagram page;
Hmm…I feel the need to do this especially as a husband, father and a pastor.
@busoladakolo got married from our church to @timidakolo, and as a friend to the family, I’ve been privy to some of the personal struggles Busola has had over the years, based on the details she expressed at the recent interview. This is her truth and it should be honoured.
I commend her for her bravery and I pray this helps her healing process.
I also noticed that there was a denial of the allegation. It is important that the truth comes out.
Rape is a serious offence and it is unacceptable. A process that unveils the truth in this hurtful situation in the Body must begin immediately. We leaders MUST be accountable and I support a process at arriving at Justice, Healing and Resolution in this matter.
