Aftermath the accusation of rape against the Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) Biodun Fatoyinbo a new #MeToo movement on social media with women sharing stories of sexual assault and calling for justice has ememerged on social media.
Celebrity Photographer and wife of a popular musician Timi Dakola, Busola said in an interhas accused Fatoyinbo rape when she was a teenager.The story caught the public attention and people responded with outrage on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags #MeToo, #ChurchToo and #SayNoToRape, in what activists said could be the start of Nigeria’s first major movement against sex abuse.
Hundreds of people protested on Sunday in major cities Abuja and Lagos. Dakolo’s husband, Timi Dakolo, posted an image on Instagram saying protests were planned for seven days.
“People were already angry that the government was not taking the issue of violence against women and girls seriously,” said Osai Ojigho, country director for human rights group Amnesty International.
“So when Busola’s story broke out, people were like you know what, enough is enough.
“This needs to stop. I think it’s been building up. It’s about time,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
The #MeToo movement began in the United States in late 2017 in response to accusations of sexual assault and harassment in the entertainment industry. It has since spread to other countries, though there has been little pick-up in Africa.
Nigeria had a small movement earlier this year in the mostly Muslim north to expose sexual abuse with the hashtag #ArewaMeToo, but it did not spread widely, said Ojigho.
Public frustration had grown with several incidents since last year, including reports that Nigerian soldiers had raped women fleeing violence in the north, and that police had sexually assaulted women in Abuja nightclub raids, she said.
Since Friday, women have come out with more allegations against pastors, but have also taken the movement beyond the church, she said.
“For the first time women are pushing issues to the forefront that are getting a lot of media attention,” she said.
“The challenge is to make sure it goes beyond that.”
Fatoyimbo has denied the allegation in a post on his verified Instagram page, and has since stepped down from the pulpit indefinately.
He and Dakolo could not be reached for comment.
Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, has a poor record on women’s rights and one of the lowest rates of female politicians in the world.

He said that he would soon be fine again.
“I want this court to appeal to her as I have spent so much on fixing this problem, I do not want her to go, please help plead to her.

Return my virginity if you want divorce — Wife tells husband

A 28-year-old woman, Suliat Toriola, on Wednesday told her husband, Toriola Lateef, that she would only consent to his request for the dissolution of their marriage if he returns her virginity and good health, as she was two years ago before the union.

He told the Court that Suliat was in the habit of harassing him at his work place and social functions attended by his friends and relatives.
The husband said he had to move out of their matrimonial home due to the unbearable development.
Responding, Suliat said she was charmed by Toriola before she agreed to marry him.
“Ideally I will not marry this type of human being, if not for the charm he used on me.
“I was looking for charm to help my business grow and he told me that he will need to get some hairs from my private part and also make love to me. That was how I found myself married to him.
“When I got to his house, my business boomed and he also made lot of money too and we got it renewed twice but now my health is deteriorating and he now moved out of the house.
“He must look for a way to return my virginity and my health, before he can say he wants to leave me.”
Ruling on the matter, the President of the Court, Raheem Adelodun, said the case would be put on hold until the health condition of Suliat improves.
He ordered the families of the estranged couple to seek urgent medical help for Suliat and update the Court every 15 days.
