Former lawmaker representing Bayelsa East in the upper legislative chamber, Senator Murray Ben-Bruce, has reacted to the rape allegations involving the founder and general overseer of COZA, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
DAILY POST reported yesterday that Busola, wife of music star, Timi Dakolo, revealed how she was allegedly raped by the cleric.
The Pastor has since denied the rape allegation, saying that he had never in his life raped anyone, not even as an unbeliever.
However, in a series of tweets on Saturday, Ben Bruce said, “I am deeply saddened and I stand in solidarity with Busola Dakolo. To put in perspective the enormity of rape crime in Nigeria, one day I was talking to 6 beauty queens, 5 opened up to me that they were raped as children.
“I am saddened by the revelations of Busola, and I am calling for a full-fledged investigation and the accused if found guilty must face the full and maximum wrath of the law.
“I further call on the Government to show more support for rape victims. We currently do not do enough to support rape victims.” (daily post)
