Celebrity photographer, Busola Dakolo, had a recent interview with Media Room Hub Magazine. During the interview session, she explained her reasons for speaking up against COZA’s Founder and Senior Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, in 2019.
She was with her husband during the interview and she said:
“I didn’t open up to revenge, I wanted people to know that there are things happening in churches, you pray for peace in the country yet you are not standing in the gap in prayers for the sheep in your care.. you are quick to collect offerings… do things behind the scene… and everyone is trying to cover up…”
“I spoke up just o say that things are not right and not to revenge. I have girls, when I gave birth to my girls, I cried, my husband was wondering why I was crying but it’s cos I told God I don’t want girls cos I feel I cant take care of them cos of what happened to me.. and I can kill anyone that does such to them and I don’t mind going to jal for that.. that is why I cried out…” she added.
Adding to her response, her husband, Timi Dakolo, said:
“The church is supposed to be a safe place and a place to run to from the craziness of this world, if the church is not safe for us again, or if I can't leave my daughter in church for rehearsals out of fear… cos if it is not from choirmaster, it is the pastor or minister… so where is the safe place... our children will grow up one day and see that we, their parents stood up for what is right.”
