The present General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN), Joseph Daramola has spoken on the rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
He has said that there is something hidden about the rape allegation, also saying that the hidden aspect of the whole situation had to be revealed. The General Secretary had gave his assurance that the matter will be investigated without any bias.
It was reported by DAILY POST earlier that the leaders of CAN were seeking means to address the rape allegations.
“We do not want to limit the investigation because it is very wide. We all know that there is something hidden in this issue. Without sentiment, nobody is condoning any criminal act.
“I am a lawyer, and before you can prove the offence of rape successfully, you have to consider so many things. You have to prove beyond every reasonable doubt before you can establish any rape case,” Daramola told the Nation.
“One cannot easily have his way into a woman; it is not possible, and here we are talking about rape. If you look at the entire story, one has to do proper investigation.
“For example, if the court wants to look into it, a lot of things will be considered. Church elders will interrogate Fatoyinbo without fear or favour. There is no pastor that people don’t tempt.
“We have got to a place where our thinking faculty has to be sharpened. And we have to reason like human beings. The investigation will be concluded soon but it has to be properly conducted.”
