Her statement comes on the heels of two high profile alleged abuse, among others that have flooded social media in the last couple of days.
Recently, Busola Dakolo accused Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) of raping her when she was a teenager, in a now-viral interview.
