Reverend Samson Ayokunle, president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has directed the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) to submit its report on the COZA rape scandal in two weeks.
Reverend Samson Ayokunle said PFN has two weeks to submit its report on its investigation with regards to the rape allegation leveled against the senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, by Busola Dakolo, wife of singer, Timi Dakolo.
Recall that PFN had constituted a probe panel after the explosive interview Busola granted in which she made rape allegations against Pastor Fatoyibo.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, Reverend Ayokunle told newsmen that CAN condemns rape in it totality.
“We have told you without mincing words that we will never support immorality in whatever form, it is alien to the culture of the church, to the teachings of Christ. And there is no pulpit that I know in Nigeria that the members are taught immorality, but we will not condemn until we have reasons to condemn, let the panel come out with the result let’s know what the truth is. I told you in the press release we issued that we have given the right to Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) because we don’t deal with individual churches, we deal with blocs.
“We have directed PFN, an arm of a bloc, which is also large enough to investigate that matter. I am telling you under God that PFN has set up that panel and that panel had been given two weeks within which to submit its report. Not only that, the two individuals involved have been invited by the committee and we are assuring them that nothing will be covered.” he said.
