Your pain will not be in vain- Toke Makinwa tells Busola Dakolo
Toke Makinwa, Nigerian media personality has reacted to the viral interview in which Busola, wife of Timi Dakolo, accused Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping her as a teenager.
Busola noted that Pastor Biodun gave her a drink after the deed was done. The mother of three also disclosed that he raped her a second time on her way back from his house where she had gone to help his wife with domestic chores.
“Immediately I opened the door (of her house in Ilorin), he just pushed me, he didn’t say anything, he didn’t utter any word, he just pushed me to one of the chairs in my living room,” she said.
“I saw him, he was removing his belt, he just said: ‘keep quiet, do what I want you to do and you will be fine.”
Toke Makinwa took to her Instagram page to pour her mind on the issue.
In her words:”This is our sister, let us lift her up in light. All I see is a strong, black woman who beat the odds to survive the horror and nightmare of abuse. I am so sorry you had to go through this, I am so sorry babe. Thank you for speaking out, thank you for unlocking the door for others to do the same. Your Pain is not in vain, your pain will break the chains for other people who are in the dark. Well done. You are beautiful, I applaud your courage, I salute you for doing this. Guys pls let us come together and love on her, let us lift her up in love and stand by her. Let us stand in her shoes and speak out against injustice. Let the perpetrator face the law. Lawyers in the building let’s do this right. To watch your abuser daily go on unrepentant is the worst thing that anyone can imagine and @busoladakolo needs justice. Let the system work this time.
God will mend your broken heart,
God will heal your soul and protect you.
Dear @timidakolo God bless you for standing and speaking out even when you faced heavy criticism, thank you for being strong for your other half, this hurts so much, so so much and I pray we get justice. We cannot let this slide, let’s not stop at talking on Social media, let us use our network to get every victim the justice they deserve. If we don’t fight now, we have failed all the victims, we have silenced the voices that need to be heard too. cc @opetodolapo
