The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has reacted to the court Judgement which struck out the rape allegation made by Busola Dakolo against Pastor Biodun Fatoyibo and also awarded N1m as damages in favour of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly Founder.
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.
