A former staff of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) who reportedly worked directly with Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has accused him of raping her.
The lady, who was unsettled by the possibility of being recognized, hid her identity while narrating her story in an interview with Y!TV.
She revealed that Pastor Fatoyinbo asked her to come to his house outside Nigeria to take some instructions and go for an errand but halfway into the conversation, stopped discussing the church and grabbed her towards him.
“Biodun Fatoyinbo raped me sometime in September 2017 at his apartment outside Nigeria. We were discussing in his office on a couch before I knew it, he dragged me towards him.
“He took off my zipper, one hand putting me to the couch; at that point, I didn’t know what to do because I had to fight sexual abuse as a teenager. I felt I had put myself in the space.
“Everything moved quickly from there and then he started trying to pull me into a hug and started kissing me which I found shocking. I had known him as a spiritual leader and I was about to witness the opposite of everything that I thought he stood for.
“I was too shocked. It was a couch. I don’t know whether I should hold on to something. I remember telling him continuously ‘you can’t do that, you can’t do that.’
“I just kept telling him to stop but he kept telling me to relax.
“He was not moved by my pushing and did not relent to stop, after that he took off his pants and did what he wanted to do. As soon as that was over and he saw I was in tears, he apologised and said he was sorry and didn’t mean to but I was just interested in getting out of there”, she said.
