The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, on Saturday condemned any case of rape in strong terms, saying it doesn’t matter who is involved.

Rev Samson Ayokunle, President, CAN, who gave the condemnation via a text message to the News Agency of Nigeria stressed that justice must prevail in all rape cases.

Mr Ayokunle described rape as ungodly, wicked and reprehensible.

He, however, noted that CAN had no details on the trending allegations against the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA Pastor Abiodun Fatoyinbo.

But he confirmed that the association had reached out to the christian wing which Fatoyinbo belongs to ascertain truth of the matter and take necessary actions.

”We have no details about the matter other than what we are reading and hearing from the social media, and this is not reliable and credible evidence.

”The CAN leadership has reached out to the leadership of the block which the Pastor in question belongs with a view to getting to the root of the matter.

”This will help us to make the right decision on the issue,” he said.

NAN reports that there will be a protest march to COZA church in Abuja, on 30 June, by #Church Too Movement.

NAN also reports that Busola Dakolo, a photographer and wife of musician, Timi Dakolo, has accused Mr Fatoyinbo of rape.​

Mrs Dakolo is the second high profile person after Ese Walter to accuse Mr Fatoyinbo of rape.​
