Busola Dakolo, wife of popular singer, Timi Dakolo, in an emotional interview on Friday on YNaija website said pastor Fatoyinbo raped her in her house when she was 16 years old.

The interview recorded in a church triggered outrage and condemnation with anti-rape activists calling on the pastor to step down and address the allegations against him.

Fatoyinbo has denied the allegations and directed his legal team to sue.

In his statement on Monday, he said he took the decision to step down after consulting with several spiritual leaders in Nigeria and around the world as well as with the leadership of COZA.

”This step enables me to submit to the concerns of my spiritual mentors as they consider all the issues that have been raised against me,” he wrote.

”Though I do not understand all that is happening, I trust the lord to guide and lead me one step at a time. Kindly pray for me and the congregation as we seek the face of the lord at these turbulent times.”
