Fela Durotoye, the presidential candidate of the Alliance For New Nigeria in the last general elections has called for a thorough and independent investigation of the rape allegation levelled against the founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Abiodun Fatoyinbo.
Fatoyinbo was on Friday accused of rape by Mrs Busola Dakolo, wife of the singer, Timi Dakolo. She said he raped her at Ilorin, several years ago, when she was a minor.
Durotoye also said that Fatoyinbo should step down while the investigation goes on.
In a post on his verified Instagram handle, Durotoye said, “I strongly believe that a thorough and independent investigation can only be in the best interest of everyone concerned as well as in the best interest of the body of Christ and the society at large.
“To be clear, I do not have any desire to be a judge nor do I have the competence to judge such an egregious case but I know this for sure … that serious allegations such as RAPE deserve to be fully investigated especially where the names of witnesses have been mentioned and their identities revealed in the story.”
