Following Courts dismissal of Bukola’s rape case allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and fine payment of N1million for damages, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has reacted to the Court’s Judgement.
Pastor Bayo Oladeji, media aide of the President of Christian Association of Nigeria Revd Samson Ayokunle who spoke to Vanguard on his behalf, said the image of the Nigerian Church has been dented by the rape allegation and the court proceedings.
The CAN President also urged Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and Busola Dakolo to put away all that happened and reconcile.
“While we note that the image of the Nigerian Church and its leadership was dented before and during the court proceedings, CAN urges Pastor Fatoyinbo and Mrs Dakolo, to put away all that has transpired and reconcile.
“The Church preaches forgiveness and reconciliation, and that is our position as the umbrella body of Christians in the country.
“We begrudge neither Pastor Fatoyinbo nor Busola Dakolo, and urge them to extend a similar hand of love and fellowship to each other” he said.
