After wife, Busola Dakolo, of Nigerian Soul Music king, Timi Dakolo, celebrities have all come out in their number to air their opinions on th issue. One of such celebrities is popular Nigerian critic, Reno Omokri.
Reno Omokri has joined the bandwagon of celebrities delivering their opinion about the rape allegation that was raised against Abiodun Fatoyinbo. Fatoyinbo is the senior pastor of COZA.
Busola Dakolo began to trend since she granted an interview with Chude Jideonwo of Y Naija during the early hours of Friday, June 28. According to Busola, she was raped twice by Pastor Fatoyinbo before she turned 18.
Further, she added that after allegedly raping her, he told her she should be happy it was a man of God who took away her sexual purity.
Reno Omokri has reacted to the interview which has since gone viral on the internet with most celebrities supporting Busola Dakolo over Pastor Fatoyinbo.
Here’s what he had to say:
I have NEVER liked Pastor @BiodunFatoyinbo of @cozaglobal for reasons that I will not say publicly. However, I am mature enough to divorce my emotions and be led by logic. And I counsel those now condemning him to do the same.
The average Black African is easily moved to hysteria by excitable emotions. This is why it is RIDICULOUSLY easy to manipulate Africans with the media Satan does his best work with such people, who can’t suppress emotion in preference to logic.
Think. Don’t emote. A pastor comes to your house early in the morning. He does not know who will open when he knocks, or who is at home. He knocks and immediately you open he pushed you to a chair and raped you in your pyjamas. Do people think?
Reno Omokri defends Fatoyinbo
Even the most USELESS movie director won’t accept such a plot in a B rated Hollywood/Nollywood/Bollywood movie. A movie has to have PLAUSIBILITY. I don’t like pastor Fatoyinbo, but I won’t suspend my intellect because of my dislike of the fellow
After he allegedly raped you, you kept quiet for enough time for him to go to his car and get a soda drink for you? It does not ADD UP. My dislike for @BiofunFatoyinbo won’t make me become a SLANDERER by default. This story rings very FALSE.
I am an advocate of morality. I publicly preach against premarital and extramarital sex. Pastored a congregation in Abuja for years. I will NEVER, EVER, support RAPE. But Satan is going about like a roaring lion seeking whom to consume!
Pastor @BiodunFatoyinbo is SLEEK. Too sleek for my liking. What type of sleek man will rape an underaged girl in HER PARENTS HOUSE? While HER SIBLINGS are AT HOME. And then leave her to go get a drink from his car. Is this mass HYPNOSIS.
Does we Black African of the Nigerian variety think at all? Do we only exist in the soulish realm? I have a Masters in Law from England. The story CANNOT stand up in court. The story CANNOT stand up in the light of cross-examination
I give you my word that if you gave Satan 10 minutes to manipulate the minds of Nigerians. He will get a sizeable number of Nigerians to believe that Jesus is evil and the satan is good. We are too gullible, excitable and emotional”
