Mrs Dakolo alleged during an interview with Chude Jideonwo aired on Friday on YNaija website that the pastor raped her in her house early in the morning some years ago.

Busola Dakolo was visibly shaken as she recalled how the pastor invaded her house at about 6.30 a.m. or 7 a.m. while she was still wearing her pajamas.

The duplex was big and with only her elder sister in the house, the accused perpetrator had enough space to pin her to a bed and rape her.

The accusation, vehemently denied by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, triggered outrage and condemnation but also praises for the victim for speaking up in a country where women are often afraid to confront perpetrators of sexual violence.

Below is the reaction of the accused.

The pastor described the allegations as false and an attempt to extort cash from him, saying he had already directed his lawyers to press charges against the accuser.
