Cynthia 'Cee-C' Nwadiora the former Big Brother Naija housemate and 1st Runner-Up of the 2018 of the live TV show has taken sides with the Busola Dakolo popular photographer and wife of music maestro, Timi Dakolo who has alleged she suffered rape by the Global Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA Biodun Fatoyinbo NEGROIDHAVEN can say authoritatively. 

While not expressly mentioning the name of Busola, the brand ambassador took to her Instagram page and said this yesterday: 'Every human has a right to tell their story. I will not stand around and watch anyone try to silence a woman for speaking their truth. We live in a society where women suffer abuse daily and are too afraid to speak, for fear of condemnation.

'Any woman finding the courage to speak is nothing short of bravery in my eyes and nobody has a right to try to silence or discredit them.

'I understand my stance may bring about certain consequences but it is important to me to make it known that I don't support shaming or discrediting a woman for her truth.'

Meanwhile, the accused COZA pastor has reacted to the rape allegation made by Busola. According to him, 'I am aware that there has been a recent media publication on YouTube by YNaija operated and owned by RED Media Group, which shows an interview by Chude Jideonwo with Busola Dakolo. Prior to now, we had adhered to our policy of ignoring rumours from social media accounts as we knew that several statements had been made to extort the church of money and myself through blackmail, harassment and intimidation. We have refused time and again to accede to their request, which has infuriated them overtime; because of this, they have got more aggressive.

'Unlike previous statements where innuendos were used and there was no direct mention of myself or the church, the recent video released on YouTube has now made direct criminal allegations against me in the interview granted by Busola Dakolo, which are fallacious, non-existent and which are all denied in every measure.

'As an individual and as a church, we love and support people, we will never condone any form of rape, harassment, or intimidation of anybody. I have never in my life raped anybody even as an unbeliever and I am absolutely innocent of this.

'Busola Dakolo, who has made this false allegation and her family, attended the church during the early start of the church in Ilorin in 1999. I never had any private interactions with her beyond my pastoral duties. Looking at her status and that of her husband, I am dumbfounded by why she would say such a thing.

'We will also not stand for false criminal allegations made against me or the church. The leadership of the church and I have briefed our lawyers to commence criminal and civil actions against all individuals making such false allegations whether directly or by proxies.

'We will as a church pursue every measure within the ambits of the law to bring culprits to justice. We have heard and we will not be surprised to see more of such allegations by people who have been paid to continue in this line of blackmail, harassment and extortion, including those who may have been dismissed from their duties in the church on disciplinary grounds.

'To all our members and those supporting God's work, I want to assure you that we would fight this and the Lord will vindicate us. This has always been intended to attack the church; this is the intent of the adversary, the intent is to destroy the church, so please stay focused and prayerful', the statement reads in part. 

The incident of rape allegation by Busola against Biodun has polarised opinions among netizens in Cross River State with some believing Busola and others disbelieving.
