The senior Pastor of COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo, is presently in custody of the police, Punch reports.
“Yes, he is in our custody,” Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba told Punch.
Fatoyinbo is being questioned over allegation of rape levelled against him by Busola Dakolo.
Mba continued: “We have done a whole lot of background investigations and spoken to a whole lot of people before now. It was a deliberate investigative procedure to bring him last. Although we may invite others later depending on how investigations go.
“We were not in a hurry to bring him because we wanted to have enough background information that would be used in interrogating him. We have done an extensive investigation.”
When asked if the pastor was being detained, Mba said it was too early to say.
Dakolo accused Fatoyinbo of raping her 20 years ago in Ilorin, Kwara State, an allegation denied by Fatoyinbo.
According to Mba, the investigation of Fatoyinbo was proof that the police had not swept the matter under the carpet as being insinuated in some quarters.
