Busola further disclosed that she was invited for questioning alongside her husband over allegations of “falsehood and criminal conspiracy” on July 23 by the special tactical squad of the inspector general of police (IGP), who never extended same to Pastor Fatoyinbo.

“Our culture doesn’t allow speaking of these sorts of things against anointed men of God. They’d rather hide it, and the party that is being victimized tends to live with that self-blame,” she said.

“The damage on the survivor is extremely terrible but the society, the church, keeps sweeping things under the carpet.”

Recall that Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo returned to the pulpit on August 4, weeks after stepping down following a protest.
