People claiming to be members of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) have been reaching out to social media influencers to carry out a social media campaign in defence of their senior pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, who was accused of raping Busola Dakolo.
Busola, a celebrity photographer and wife of a musician, Timi Dakolo, had alleged that Pastor Fatoyinbo of COZA raped her twice when she was a teenager.
In a swift reaction, Pastor Fatoyinbo denied the allegation and threatened to take legal actions against Busola.
TheCable understands that social media opinion influencers across the country are being offered millions by COZA ‘agents’ to upload posts in defence of Pastor Fatoyinbo.
Some protesters under the platform of #ChurchTooMovement have vowed to storm the church headquarters in Abuja on Sunday.
This is not the first time that the pastor has been accused of rape or having sexual encounters with church members.
The most prominent was that of Ese Walter in 2013. Walter shared her experience on a self-named blog, which has now been deleted.
Fatoyinbo had also denied the allegation, attributing it to his enemies.
TheCable has contacted the church authorities for reactions although there has been no response as at 11am
