COZA Rape Scandal: Our lives are in serious danger, singer Timi Dakolo cries out

Popular musician, Timi Dakolo has lamented that his life and that of his wife and children have been at risk since the rape allegation, his wife, Busola made against the Senior Pastor, Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo.

He also raised the alarm over the attempt to abduct his wife by a team of policemen that visited their home on Saturday.

Dakolo alleged that things got worse when the police made their residential address in Lagos public, thereby making them susceptible to attacks.

The artiste said, “I didn’t expect that our residential address, where my children live, would be released to the public and since then, we have noticed how my life, my wife’s life and the lives of my children have been put at risk to strange faces around the house.

“We have been followed home, people are watching our home; we have not been able to do our work. We now have to tell our children why they cannot step outside.”

He rubbished allegations that he and his wife were trying to extort money from Fatoyinbo, adding that he had made enough money from his music.

Dakolo asked Nigerians to stop treating rape victims like criminals for speaking the truth.

He said his wife had informed him of the alleged rape since last year and it took a while before they both decided to make the matter public.

The artiste further stated that the allegation was not targeted at the church but Fatoyinbo and the matter should thus be treated as a crime and not a campaign against the body of Christ.

Dakolo dismissed reports that he had claimed in the past that he married his wife as a virgin, adding that it was not true that Fatoyinbo paid for his honeymoon.

“I have never attended COZA in my life. I have never been in the same room with Fatoyinbo in my life, neither have I been a music director,” he said.

Dakolo says the police have refused to invite the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo, who allegedly raped his wife, Busola, 20 years ago.

Dakolo, therefore, wondered why the police would storm his home in Gestapo style to invite him and his wife to Abuja from Lagos State while Fatoyinbo who was in Abuja had never been invited.

The musician said this at a press conference in Lagos on Sunday.

He noted that last month, he and his wife wrote a petition to the police and they were questioned for six hours by cops.

Dakolo, therefore, wondered why the police would invite him and his wife to Abuja for another round of questioning.
