The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OMF), Apostle Johnson Suleman, has defended Reno Omokri, a former Presidential media aide over his stance on the rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyimbo, the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).
Naija News reports that the clergyman made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Tuesday night, July 2.
This online news platform recalls that the wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo, Busola, had alleged that the COZA Pastor had forcefully raped her when she was young.
Mrs. Dakolo, a mother-of-three, narrated how Pastor Fatoyinbo allegedly forced his way onto her when she was just 18 years.
However, a swift reaction, the COZA Pastor denied the allegation, though admitted Busola once attended the same church with her family.
The COZA founder consequently ordered his lawyers to institute both criminal and civil case against Busola.
Omokri, on his part, had said that he does not believe the rape story citing Pastor Fatoyinbo’s sleekness as the reason for his statement.
“Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo 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?” Omokri had said.
Omokri was, however, berated by Nigerians for his statement with many accusing the former Presidential media aide of being a rape enabler for not believing the rape allegation against the clergyman.
Defending Omokri, Apostle Suleman wrote: “I hear people are accusing @renoomokri for having been paid for defending a man of God..a man of God he doesn’t even like. but defended him according to John 13v35..you don’t know reno. he attacks even his friends when they are wrong.”
