The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) says Biodun Fatoyinbo has refused to meet with the panel set up to investigate the accusations against him and therefore declared the investigation inconclusive.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had given the PFN two-week ultimatum to submit its report on the investigation of the rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).
Meanwhile, Fatoyinbo has reportedly returned to the pulpit, exactly a month after being in the news over the rape allegation.
Fatoyinbo was accused of rape by Busola Dakolo, the wife of talented musician, Timi Dakolo.
Busola had accused the under-fire clergyman of sleeping with her without her consent in her parent’s Ilorin home. She revealed this in an online interview.
While the matter has generated a lot of reactions, leading to Fatoyinbo stepping down from the pulpit after meeting elders of the church, the Senior Pastor has returned to the pulpit.
Meanwhile, in another development, Busola alleged that policemen threatened her with a gun and forced her to sign a letter accusing her and her husband of criminal conspiracy.
The incident reportedly happened three weeks after she had filed a rape allegation against the Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
“The charges against the Dakolos were brought by a special police branch in a counter-case filed by COZA, despite investigations stalling on the initial case,” The UK Guardian has reported.
