As stated by the two-week ultimatum of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, the Pentecostal community of Nigeria, NFP, will finally present its report on the investigation into the rape complaint against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth Assembly Sion (COZA), this week.
Latest Nigeria News recalls that the CAN had granted the NFP two weeks to present its investigation report on the rape accusation against the senior pastor of the Commonwealth Assembly of Sion, COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Speaking to The Nation about the delay in the presentation, the president of the PFN, Rev. Felix Omobude, said that one of the interested parties, at the beginning of last week, requested a time extension.
“You are right that a two-week ultimatum was given. The committee is working and would have delivered within the two weeks but one of the parties involved in the matter asked for an extension of time. The extension was last week. But by this week, the committee will conclude its report and the media will be briefed,” he said.
Busola, wife of a popular musician, Timi Dakolo, accused Fatoyinbo of raping her 20 years ago when she was a teenager.
CAN’s National Director, Legal and Public Affairs, Kwamkur Vondip, who also corroborated what the PFN president said, noted that the committee was working on it and they were trying to get everything in black and white.
“What the leadership of the PFN told me is that the committee was working. But they requested for an extension of time. They have seen one of the parties, since there are two major parties involved. Of course, you know it is not easy for people who are far from each other to come together to investigate issues.
“I was told that they granted them the extension of time and it is an issue of the next two weeks or so. It was Friday last week that the two parties reported back to the committee, asking for an extension of time,” he said.
