Timi Dakolo Starts Movement for Rape Survivors


Following the outraged and protests that greeted the rape allegation leveled against the founder and Global Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, by Busola, her husband Timi Dakolo has announced the commencement of movement for rape survivors.

This is coming as Dakolo also thanked Nigerians for supporting him and his family since Busola opened up on the case.

Dakolo who revealed this on his Instagram page on Sunday also called on Nigerians to report rape incidents, especially when it happens in a church.

“Busola and I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, support and most importantly – action, following her story told on Friday.

“We thank you, Nigeria. We thank you most deeply for helping make this moment count.

He also lauded the efforts of the people who have offered helping hand since Busola decided to tell her story months ago.

“Because of them, Busola’s story has sparked a movement called #NotInMyChurch – to help other survivors of sexual abuse in the church find help, justice an healing. I am grateful to Enough is Enough Nigeria @eienigeria for helping to drive this movement.

“Please upload stories about abuse or rape, especially in the church on notinmychurch.ng and to partner with or support the work they are doing to help survivors speak out, find help or get justice, please email info@notinmychurch.ng.

“We can truly make this moment matter beyond just Busola’s story. She is speaking on behalf of those who haven’t yet been able to speak, and thousands who have now begin to find their voices.”
