Popular Nigerian civil activist and self-acclaimed tormentor of President Buhari has described as false the story by Busola Dakota, Timi Dakolo’s wife that she was raped by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA.
In a statement posted on his verified Twitter handle using #ForTheBodyOfChristNotForFatoyinbo, Omokri said Busola’s story “rings very FALSE.” He said that though he was not a fan of the accused pastor, he would never allow his emotions to blight his logic, like many others already crucifying Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Reno was reacting to a video posted online wherein Busola accused Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping her right inside her father’s house.
Reno punctured the video using series of tweets posted on his Twitter handle. According to Omokri, the circumstances surrounding the occurrence of the events make it difficult for sensible people like him to believe.
“The average Black African is easily moved to hysteria by excitable emotions. This is why it is RIDICULOUSLY easy to manipulate Africans with the media Satan does his best work with such people, who can’t suppress emotion in preference to logic .”
“Think. Dont emote. A pastor comes to your house early in the morning. He does not know who will open when he knocks, or who is at home. He knocks and immediately you open he pushed you to a chair and raped you in your pyjamas. Do people think?
“Even the most USELESS movie director wont accept such a plot in a B rated Hollywood/Nollywood/Bollywood movie. A movie has to have PLAUSIBILITY. I dont like pastor Fatoyinbo, but I won’t suspend my intellect because of my dislike of the fellow
“After he allegedly raped you, you kept quiet for enough time for him to go to his car and get a soda drink for you? It does not ADD UP. My dislike for @BiofunFatoyinbo won’t make me become a SLANDERER by default. This story rings very FALSE
Reno said people should not misconstrue his message to mean he was in support of rape. No. Omokri said this about himself on his activities with respect to morality and rape:
“I am an advocate of morality. I publicly preach against premarital and extramarital sex. I pastored a congregation in Abuja for years. I will NEVER, EVER, support RAPE. But satan is going about like a roaring lion seeking whom to consume!”
Reno believes the case will collapse under cross-examination in the court of law, and that as a lawyer himself, he cannot be hoodwinked by such emotional stories.
Reno concluded Nigerians can believe anything thrown at them:
“I give you my word that if you gave satan 10 minutes to manipulate the minds of Nigerians, he will get a sizeable number of Nigerians to believe that Jesus is evil and he satan is good. We are too gullible, excitable and emotional.”
