The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, set up a 5-man fact-finding panel to look into the rape accusation by Mrs. Busola Dakolo against Pastor Fatoyinbo and on Wednesday the committee did not see the embattled Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).

Pastor Abiodun Fatoyinbo who is enmeshed in a rape allegation to meet with the panel set up by the body to wade into the matter.

The National Publicity Secretary, PFN, Bishop Emma Gospel Isong made this known at a press briefing in Ikeja, Lagos.

According to the publicity secretary who was with Administrative Secretary of the Fellowship, Rev. Akinola, said the body set up a high powered fact-finding panel made up of men and women of integrity and wisdom to meet with Mrs. Busola Dakolo who raised the allegation and Pastor Fatoyinbo who initially supported the idea of intervention by the august body.

He said the panel which met for more than a month had several meetings to interface with several parties that were connected with the matter. “Unfortunately, several attempts to meet Pastor Fatoyinbo who is one of the important parties in the matter have failed despite several efforts by the panel to get his attention or appearance,” he said.

The cleric further said the body appreciated the respect Busola Dakolo gave in her personal appearance together with her husband to state her side of the story. “Arising from this, the PFN, unfortunately, wishes to announce our inability to come to a conclusion on this matter,” he said.

Isong said Nigerians and well-meaning people are their witnesses that they have fulfilled Scriptural, public and moral expectations as a reasonable and legal organization on the matter.
