Your story broke me this morning @busoladakolo I am so sorry you had to go through this..you are strong..you are brave!! To go through this sort of violation, to live with this sort of pain, to carry this burden and still thrive is so inspiring. Thank you for speaking up..because by telling your story you have given other victims permission and courage to do the same. . @timidakolo men like you are rare…God bless you for standing by your wife for supporting her, for fighting for her.. I pray that God gives your family the healing you need to overcome this. . Pastors need to be held accountable for their actions..they cannot be above the law in the name of religion..the people who knew about this man's behaviour and made excuses for him and covered up his atrocities must hold themselves accountable too.. infact you should all be ashamed of yourselves because that is not christianity..don't use God's name to do nonsense.. fanaticism is not christianity

@busoladakolo I’m so sorry so sorry and I hope that every thing that horrible wicked man did he really pays for it . Busola is sharing this story because she is not the only one . Predators are Calculated and have Many many victims and until this man (I can’t even call him a Pastor ! ) is called to order and faces his crimes, he will CONTINUE like he has been for years !! If you are a member of @cozaglobal do the needful and ask that your pastor face his crimes . If Sunday comes and you go to church and he is standing on that pulpit . Shame on you all! #stopstiflingvictimsvoices #survivor

“The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes.” ~ C. Joybell C #istandwithyou thank you @busoladakolo ??

I woke up to several missed 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 everytime. 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. ?

In a society that shames and castigates women for being raped causing them to believe that they are unworthy and dirty, I just want to celebrate Timi Dakolo for standing by his strong and beautiful wife. You are a real man, a man willing to risk it all just so your wife can have a voice. I also want to take a moment to admire Busola Dakolo’s courage, I can’t begin to imagine how much it took for you to be this vulnerable but I’m happy God gave you the strength to allow yourself to be free from this burden, thank you for being an inspiration to so many! Dear survivors of rape, I pray this encourages you to realise just how incredible you are. You have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, none of this was/is your fault. You deserve happiness and all the wonderful things that life has to offer. Lastly, the right person will love you, support you and cherish you just the way you deserve. Like Aunty Elvina Ibru said, ‘Refuse to be ashamed, refuse to be castigated because it’s not your fault’ Dear rapists, SHAME ON YOU!

This is our sister, let us lift her up in light. All I see is a strong, black woman who beat the odds to survive the horror and nightmare of abuse. I am so sorry you had to go through this, I am so sorry babe. Thank you for speaking out, thank you for unlocking the door for others to do the same. Your Pain is not in vain, your pain will break the chains for other people who are in the dark. Well done. You are beautiful, I applaud your courage, I salute you for doing this. Guys pls let us come together and love on her, let us lift her up in love and stand by her. Let us stand in her shoes and speak out against injustice. Let the perpetrator face the law. Lawyers in the building let’s do this right. To watch your abuser daily go on unrepentant is the worst thing that anyone can imagine and @busoladakolo needs justice. Let the system work this time. God will mend your broken heart, God will heal your soul and protect you. Dear @timidakolo God bless you for standing and speaking out even when you faced heavy criticism, thank you for being strong for your other half, this hurts so much, so so much and I pray we get justice. We cannot let this slide, let’s not stop at talking on Social media, let us use our network to get every victim the justice they deserve. If we don’t fight now, we have failed all the victims, we have silenced the voices that need to be heard too. cc @opetodolapo
