WATCH Busola Dakolo open up for the First Time EVER about Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo Raping Her Twice at 16



There have been several allegations and accusations of sexual assault against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, but it has mostly been from third parties.

But one of his alleged victims Busola Dakolo is opening up about how it happened the first time.

This is the second time an alleged victim is speaking out publicly about Fatoyinbo’s sexual assault. First was media personality Ese Walter, who, in 2013, spoke about being seduced by Fatoyinbo and eventually having an affair with him.

Fatoyinbo had promised a robust response at the time, but no word yet.

Busola is a photographer, and wife to singer Timi Dakolo, who has also criticised an “Abuja Pastor” who goes about assaulting girls.

Busola said she’s speaking up because of a social media post which accused her of promiscuity when she was a teenager, saying she was having sex with pastors while growing up in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

She said she was still in secondary school when she first met Fatoyinbo, who was heading a Divine Delight Club (a gospel club).

At this time, Busola was already vice president of her fellowship in school and what she understood Christianity to be, was different from what was happening in Divine Delight Club – she expected it to be solemn, but at the club they praised and danced and gave sermons in a more lively manner.

She felt some discomfort, but her sisters convinced her she’ll like the place.

Fatoyinbo took an interest in her after she attending the club, which her sisters were a part of, for the first time. He told her to do something in the club before she left back for school.

She decided to sing, having the rehearsals in his house. At the time Fatoyinbo was engaged to be married to his current wife.

She left for school and when she came back, the club had transitioned into Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), and her sisters had convinced her family to start attending.

Busola said she joined the choir at COZA to integrate herself into the church and maybe get rid of the discomfort she felt towards it. She said Fatoyinbo began inviting himself to her house under the guise of getting to know her better.

He kept visiting, and one Monday morning, when her mother and sisters had travelled and were absent from service the previous Sunday, Fatoyinbo arrived at her house, so early, Busola was still in her nightgown.

He didn’t say a word, she said. He forced her into a chair, removed her clothes, and raped her. Then went to his car and brought a bottle of Krest (a soft drink) and forced her to drink it.

“You should be happy that a man of God did this to you,” she quoted him as saying to her.

That was the first time.

This was around the time Fatoyinbo and his wife welcomed their first child together. Busola said she went with her sisters to church the following Sunday.

In church, Fatoyinbo’s wife, Modele asked that Busola comes to the house to take care of their baby. She refused, but her sisters convinced her to, saying it was normal for members to do so.

Fatoyinbo tried to make her sleep in the guest room, but she refused, appealing to Modele to let her sleep in the master bedroom.

The next morning, Fatoyinbo, smacked her butt, and told her: “No one ignores me.”

He ensured he drove her home that day and instead of taking her home, detoured to a secluded spot and again, raped her behind the car and on the bonnet.

When she went home, she stayed in her room for three days, and her family was worried and knew something was wrong, but couldn’t make the connection.

Fatoyinbo showed up the next Sunday to ask why she wasn’t in church and to not draw attention to herself, she went the following Sunday and kept attending. She said she left the choir after this.

Busola spoke about the rape for the first time when she visited her elder sister who had relocated to Lagos. Her sister had had a dream where she (Busola) is seen crying, with blood on a chair and Fatoyinbo smiling. She asked her to open up if anything like that had happened, and Busola narrated the sad events.

He sister told her brother and other sisters about the incident. Busola’s brother, a student of the University of Ilorin at the time, grabbed a pocket knife and took her to Fatoyinbo’s house.

One of the pastors, Wole Soetan was able to convince them to return home and that Fatoyinbo would come join them.

Him and two members came to their house and pleaded, blaming the devil for the incident. Soetan, who Busola suggests now heads the church’s Port Harcourt branch, told Busola that he’d leave the church showing that he had no tolerance for promiscuity.

She was convinced to pretend everything was normal and she kept attending the church again.

Soetan later said he couldn’t because Fatoyinbo was weak, and needed spiritual guidance.

In the following months, Fatoyinbo began organising deliverance sessions to her ‘repair’ her (Busola’s) ‘bondage’ saying him raping her was as a result of a problem they both had.

Later on she began a relationship with the pastor’s cousin and found out that Fatoyinbo was telling church members that she wasn’t ready for a relationship.

He confided in her partner, who together, they left the church.

    I wonder why this man still has a congregation and why he has not been arrested. I am among the school of thought that a person should not speak Ill of a man of God but all these ladies cannot all be lying. God help us.

      In America, he would’ve been arrested and his prosecution would’ve already began but it’s Nigeria. A country where people like that seem to get away with crimes making them think they’re above the law.

    Yes we must speak up, not just for ourselves, but also as a warning to others. I commend her for doing this. The truth shames the devil and gives him no hiding space. I pray for healing and restoration for all involved. I pray Fatoyinbo repents and asks his victims’ for forgiveness before its too late.

    Yes it is difficult to publically accept that you’ve done these things and confess your sins. But to face the judgement of God won’t hold in comparison. Use righteous judgement on yourself and set your path right and work out your salvation with fear and trembling before the righteous hand of God does.

    Who will dare to stand against God? No one can. No one will.

      You need to determine what you want to do going forward… Start taking actions in that direction, the talk is becoming too much. Secondly, hope you learned something from your experience, cos you must ensure your kids and newer generation don’t go through this…

      People like pastor biodun are sick, just because he is a pastor doesn’t men hr is perfect. First they need to know they are sick by making them responsible for their poor action and then taking other steps to help them…by this I mean, he cannot function from now in church and cannot be comfortable or protected… Until he gets help!

    Wow! This is so brave, God bless you Busola. And the respectful way you keep calling him “Pastor Biodun” despite what he has done. May God heal you completely and bless your good heart.

    wait!!! someone rapes u; den u go to his house days later at the request of his wife.
    is been a teenager to blame for her lack of common sense?
    do u call sex that u don’t struggle to stop rape?
    only God can judge.
    all dis gullible church followers who worship their pastors instead of God should learn from this.

      Rape is not about struggle but about consent. The yes or no. The permission. The lack of right to touch. The struggle that you are looking for would be in a discussion about proof….

      June 28, 2019 at 12:11 pm

      Your comment is very callous and insensitive. This story started with her being at a vulnerable age. A lot of us don’t know and understand the dynamics of sexual abuse. Please read on it and understand that sexual abuse is predation and a play of power and manipulation. SHow a little bit of empathy please

    • O!

      June 28, 2019 at 12:27 pm

      Do you call sex that you don’t struggle to stop rape? May God deliver you from your own stupidity!

      Sex that you don’t consent to is RAPE! Please stop with the victim shaming.

      You won’t blame her. Asides the age, I think some of the church members are brainwashed.

      Hi slim,

      Even the most bold of us can’t predict exactly how we would react in certain situations. Most react with shock. Yes it is possible to have common sense and still not struggle when being raped especially when you fear for your life. In fact it is the common sense that will tell you not to.

      You must understand that predators tend to pick their victim’s carefully, they build trust to a point where even the victim starts to feel sorry for them after the fact. You would be very surprised that victims may even lie to protect their predators for many years or simply keep silent.

      The issue on ground now is not who has common sense pass the other. It is instead that one in a position of power who is meant to look out for and protect others is the very one accused of abusing and destroying them. What will be done about this?

      May you never experience such in Jesus name, Amen..

      Rape is sex you did not consent to. Period.

    • Kay

      June 28, 2019 at 3:06 pm

      Not struggling doesn’t mean consent, when people who are meant to be your cover/protection betray you like that, it is usually too overwhelming to draw out a reaction. Bearing in mind the kind of society and culture we have especially in the 90s. A teenager is still a child.


      June 28, 2019 at 5:17 pm

      How on earth do u comment like this,have u been raped b4,why do u think you should judge?

    • Vin

      June 28, 2019 at 7:25 pm

      Now, I know people some people still do not understand the meaning of rape. The fact that she didn’t and couldn’t scream doesn’t mean she hasn’t been raped. Even when a woman agrees for a man to sleep with her, she can still change her mind in the process and the man must oblige. If he doesn’t, he can still be prosecuted for rape. She didn’t struggle or scream still doesn’t make it right. Assuming she was a mute or cripple, would she be questioned for not struggling?? The law is very clear on this issue.

    I grew up in Ilorin and I know this man and his church, COZA. Infact I have attended some of the services.

    While one will say his members are gullible, I see young, intelligent lads who come under him due to the excellence and glam displayed in the church. PB has a good way with the word of God with such some swag that people easily revere him up to a point of idolatry

    One thing i noticed is the high turnover rate of his workers. I knew a minister ( a very beautiful medical doctor) who got married to another male minister( a very handsome upwardly mobile banker)
    They were the ideal mentors. Everybody loved them. Suddenly,this duos left the position and the church!
    Till date, this former ministers live in Ilorin and no one knows or dare ask what went wrong.

    I also saw the Music Director of the Abuja church leave. This guy was the backbone on the music team. He left with lots of unanswered questions.

    I saw some people in child care team leave.

    A friend of mine who used to attend the church told me ,in tears that PB kissed her. She was also a victim of this culture of seeking out for the pastor”s approval prior to any relationship.

    A male colleague of mine narrated how he was financially exploited after pastor Biodun gave him some church money to trade in Forex ish. The deal went sour and PB arrested him ,locked him up and he had to pay back.

    Everyone of them has something in common…SILENCE AND FEAR.

    In my opinion, we should encourage these people to speak out . There are lots of disclosure under the carpet. People are coming out of the brainwashing experience ,and they need to be supported.
    Lastly, PB should be confronted legally. Rape is a crime that deserves no robust reply.

      How on earth can a man of God act like this?
      I really don’t know him but if truly he does these things then not only will he face the law but God’s wrath equally bcoz this is an abomination. God help us oob

    My elder brother is a staunch member of this church.
    He just told me that he met a woman who was confided about whether or not to end a relationship with a married man she met on the plane started dating only to discover he was married. She showed him the man’s picture and it was Pastor Bidoun Fatoyinbo. Said the man is very charming at the beginning and emotionally abusive once you’ve fallen for him. She had no clue who he was when they met and had no clue my brother attended COZA.

      So is your brother still a member considering what he was told? I only ask because you still used “is” i.e present tense.

    June 28, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    @Slim…chill. This has nothing to do with common sense. She was 16 years old – she was a child. Even ladies older than that would probably do the same. You are definitely overestimating the mental maturity of a 16 year-old child. The mixed emotions the poor girl must have been going through after the first incident was bad enough.

  12. Someonecute

    June 28, 2019 at 2:03 pm

    I am so glad this pastor is being called out, I remember Ese Walter and how he said he will give a robust response and that ‘his’ holy spirit asked him not to talk, As far as I was concerned that meant he did it. I wish all the other ladies would speak up as well.

    For those saying why did she go back or why didn’t she fight or struggle. For God’s sake, she was 16! I don’t know about Nigeria, but in the western world, the fact that you lure or have sex with a 16year old-a trust relationship exists between the two people, then there is grounds for a criminal charge, even if it was with consent, not to talk of this one being a rape!

    I schooled in Ilorin, I knew about COZA when it started, this church oozes of materialism of the highest order and vanity fair, the members are empty spiritually! forget all the gram, you have to dress in a certain way else you will look like a pauper, too much focus on materialism and less on spiritual form. Their pastor is guccified and oozes of ‘designer’ here and there.

    I’ve heard it that some pastors will be the very ones leading their congregation to hell. All that bling, charisma, handsomeness, swag, etc. that some pastors are using to draw crowd…na wah! Unfortunately, this is what attracts the younger generation. I remember one guy on FB one time. He would post pictures of himself all doled up, looking suave, lauding expensive items and always relating them to the Bible. Na so so pastor praising and Bible quoting. I think he was a friend of a friend because nor be say I know am, but mehn, I used to tell myself “this guy has it all wrong!” I just pray he has found the true way.

    The Word of God says Judgement would start in the house of God. I don’t think these pastors even though it seems they know the Word of God understand it. There is this vulnerability towards “men of God” It is a fact that adultery is well defined amongst pastors. I know of a pastor woman and man (not married) who commit adultery and climb the alter to preach. May God help us. What a world we live in. A lot is happening in the chrstiandom. One has to know one’s God, understand His Word and able to serve Him.
