A statement issued yesterday night by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant (Media & Communications) to the CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle said: “The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has a body, condemns any case of rape in strong terms, it doesn’t matter who is involved.

“It is ungodly, wicked, and reprehensible. However, on the allegations against Pastor Tolu Fatoyinbo, we have no details about the matter other than what we are reading and hearing from the social media, this is not reliable and credible evidence enough to jump into a conclusion.

“The CAN leadership, therefore, 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.”
