Nigerians on twitter are currently reacting to a recent rape accusation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) by Busola Dakolo.
Mrs Dakolo, who is the wife of a popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, made the revelation during an interview with Chude Jideonwo, which was published on Friday by the channel, YNaija.
The controversial video has, however, triggered widespread reactions on twitter hence making COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo, rapist, man of God and Busola Dakolo trending topics.
A Nigerian social commentator, Japheth Omojuwa, in a series of tweets strongly condemned rape as he commended Mrs Dakolo’s act of bravery.
This season of the Revelation has a rape story in it. Only an irrational person would be shocked by that. Busola Dakolo is brave. I hope her bravery helps other abused women step out. This thing is deeper than whatever is currently out there,he said.
UNILORIN students of that period and residents of Ilorin won’t be surprised by these revelations. They know scores of girls, including minors, who went through the same ordeal,he added.
Nigerian rapper, Jude Abaga, known professionally as MI Abaga, also registered his thoughts on the topic of discussion.
If a so-called Man of God decides to rape Gods children!!! He must be called what he actually is.. A man of Satan!!!!,he said, in his reaction.
Audu Maikori, a Nigerian lawyer called for an investigation and prosecution if the accused is found guilty.
A man is a man of God when he does the things that men of God do, not by just preaching them. The accusations against P. Bioidun are grave &must be investigated & prosecuted if required. Leaders cannot be allowed to wield their power over hapless followers (especially) not in the name of God,he declared.
A Twitter user, Elsie Godwin (@ELSiEiSY), in her reaction, charged people who misconstrue a particular bible verse to read and get understanding.
