The senior pastor at the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), surrendered to the Nigeria Police for questioning over rape allegations levelled against him by Busola Dakolo.
TheCable Lifestyle understands that Fatoyinbo’s protocol team was sent out of the Force Criminal Investigation Division (FCID) headquarters in Abuja.
In a June interview, Dakolo who is a celebrity photographer had accused Fatoyibo of raping her when she was a teenager.
The pastor had earlier reacted to the allegation that he refused to appear before the panel set up by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) to investigate the claim.
In his reaction through his spokesman, Fatoyinbo said his legal team advised against appearing before the panel because the sitting might be partial.
“The legal advice was also premised on the press statement issued and personally signed by the PFN President, Bishop Felix Omobude, where our Pastor was publicly disowned. Based on the foregoing, we are convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the PFN was already prejudiced and may not conduct an impartial session,” the statement read.
Station Magazine recalls that there was outrage over the allegation against the pastor. This led to the subsequent stepping down of the senior pastor of the church for investigations to be carried out, however, he has since returned to the altar.
