Pastor Poju Oyemade of Covenant Christian Centre offers his own position on rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA

Pastor Poju Oyemade
The senior pastor of Covenant Christian Centre, Pastor Poju Oyemade, has offered his own position on the ongoing rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA.

Here is his position as published on his Facebook page.

I have been asked by many well meaning people about my position concerning the accusation of rape made against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

I could only watch the tape by Busola Dakolo for a few minutes, it was difficult to sit through it. From what I heard it is impossible not to be heart broken and sympathise with her. She must have gone through a lot and then to sit to tape her experience must have been very painful.

She is today a wife and mother of three to have to relive a 20yr old experience.

I immediately contacted the spiritual leader in the Body of Christ I believe Pastor Biodun deferrs in authority to, to wade into the issue and bring about a decision.
