Nigerian social media space is abuzz today following revelations by singer, Timi Dakolo's wife, Busola Dakolo, that she was raped by the head pastor of COZA, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, when she was still a teenager.

The news quickly went viral this morning after Busola alleged in a video that she was raped in her home by the pastor.

Since the video was put out on social media, several top people in the society have shown their support for the photographer while also dragging Pastor Fatoyinbo.

A few members of the church have jumped to the defense of the spiritual leader while others have opted to remain mute.

One of those who have joined in giving his opinion about the trending issue is Nollywood actor and producer, Akah Nnani. The actor, who is a known member of the church and friend to Timi Dakolo, has decided to pitch his tent with his fellow entertainer.

He revealed that he is standing with Busola because Pastor Fatoyinbo has refused to address the issue since it was first talked about by Timi Dakolo.

Akah, who recently got married and just returned from his honeymoon, wrote: "I woke up to several calls, and text messages. My friends know my relationship with @cozaglobal.

"Let me say this. COZA is my church. I love my pastor... But rape, is a serious issue. My stomach churns as I write this. I spoke with @timidakolo a week ago and tried to understand why he had taken a stance against my pastor. I had just come back from honeymoon when all my friends sent me his attacks to my pastor a few weeks ago.

"I sought to understand, not to attack. I was under so much turmoil too because this is my church, my pastor, and I cannot go around like nothing is happening and the church isn't addressing anything or re-assuring the members.

"We must not see evil and cover it. We must not see evil and turn the other way. You all know me. I attack and speak out against corrupt political leaders every time. Well, this has hit home. Our leaders and our fathers must be held accountable. And they must deem us worthy to be answerable to. If we cannot clean in the church, forget it.

"We cannot clean the country. I am tired of hearing so much, so much rubbish about my church and leadership over the years especially cos of the industry I belong to, nothing passes our ears behind the scene.

"My pastor @biodunfatoyinbo has to say something this time. If the rest of the church does not need it, I need it. For my sake, sir... Speak on this.

"I stand with @busoladakolo as she has spoken her truth. I stand with the body of Christ also. I ask that my pastor come out and speak his own truth.

"I am praying for the church. Please let us pray for both the Dakolo and the Fatoyinbo families. (wife and kids). In the end, if we need to, let us scatter the place... Then the truth will stand up. 💔"
