CAN Gives PFN 2 Weeks To Submit Report On Rape Allegation!
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has given the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, two weeks to submit their report on the rape allegation against the Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Timi Dakolo’s wife, Busola Dakolo, had accused pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping and snatching her virginity 20 years ago. However Fatoyinbo denied the allegation.
At a news conference in Abuja on Thursday, President of CAN, Dr Samson Ayokunle, said the allegation, no matter how bad it might be, remained an allegation until proven otherwise.
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.
