RAPE ALLEGATIONS PROBE: Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo Boycotts Sessions as Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) Declares Probe Inconclusive

The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria over the weekend said its committee had concluded sittings on the allegations of rape by Busola, wife of popular artiste, Timi Dakolo, against the founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

The PFN National Publicity Secretary, Bishop Emma Isong, said the committee spoke to the parties involved in the matter.

However, he said Fatoyinbo did not honour invitations despite efforts by the committee members and leadership of the Christian body.

“The panel, which met for more than a month, had several meetings and interfaced with several parties that were connected with this matter.

“Unfortunately, several attempts to meet Pastor Biodun of COZA church, who is one of the important parties in this matter, failed despite efforts by the fact-finding committee to get his attention or appearance.

“The PFN, however, appreciates the respect that Mrs Dakolo gave in her personal appearance, together with her husband, to state her side of the story.

“We may make further statement at a later date, but certainly for now, Nigerians and well-meaning people are our witnesses that we have fulfilled scriptural, public and moral expectations as a reasonable and legal organisation.”
