Another lady has accused the Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyibo of raping her.
The lady who spoke under condition of anonymity in an interview with Y!naija said the incident happened in 2017 at the pastor’s house.
She said she was an employee of COZA who worked directly with the pastor and was also a member of the church.
According to her, Pastor Fatoyinbo asked her to come to his house on the particular day (a Thursday morning) to take some instructions and go for an errand.
“He was my boss. I worked with him. Sometimes I had to do errands for them. So it was not the first time that I was going to be at their house.
“I was there sitting on the couch with him and he started addressing something that has to do with the church.
“Everything moved quickly from there and then he started trying to pull me into a hug and started kissing me, which I found shocking. I had known him as a spiritual leader and I was about to witness opposite of everything that I thought he stood for.
“I was too shocked. It was a couch. I don’t know whether I should hold on to something. I remember telling him continuously ‘you can’t do that, you can’t do that.’
“He just kept going. Took off my button and my trouser. And then he had his other hand holding me back to the couch. And another hand right inside my pants.
“I remember he kept saying, relax. Just relax. He didn’t flinch.”
The lady added that she regarded Pastor Fatoyinbo as a father figure and a mentor, at that time when he allegedly raped her.
This allegation comes few days after Busola Dakolo wife of popular musician Timi Dakolo accused Pastor Fatoyinbo of raping her.
The allegation sparked a social media storm and eventually led to a protest at branches of COZA church. The protesters demanded justice and asked the pastor to step aside from his position so that the allegation can be investigated.
