- The Prelate of the Methodist church in Nigeria, Eminence Samuel Uche, has condemned the molestation allegations made against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA
- According to him, the accusation could be said to be false because it is coming up over a decade later
- Eminence Uche added that the accuser, Busola Dakolo, might have only spoken up to blackmail the pastor
The COZA saga has taken a new turn after the Prelate of the Methodist church in Nigeria, Eminence Samuel Uche, stated in an interview that the allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) church is 'foolish'.
While speaking to media personality, Prisca Chiemeka, the prelate stated that the accuser (which in this case is Busola Dakolo) is coming out at a time when the issue is no longer relevant given that many years have passed.
Eminence Uche who tried analysing the situation stated that it makes no sense that a man be punished for a sin he committed over a decade ago and that the allegation might be false. He also expressed that Dakolo might have tried blackmailing the pastor and when it failed, decided to speak out.
"Some accusations are foolish. For me, from my way of analysing things, there is no truth in such a thing. You say somebody rap'ed you were 26 years or so and after 16 years years you come and report. What is wrong. Maybe you demanded money or you wanted some payment and the person did not give you, then you decide to blackmail the person," he said.
He went further to share that the bible preaches forgiveness, saying: "Why do you punish somebody for a sin committed 16 years ago. Our lord Jesus Christ says any sinner that believes is forgiven. He said repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand. How do you go and tarnish the image of a man or woman who commited something from years ago. Is it relevant?"
A Facebook user identified as Church Gist shared a post in which Modele was quoted to have said she will never change her surname.
The post went viral with many praising her for choosing to stick with her man and others condemning her for refusing to see the truth.
