I hope more stories on all these pastor rapists will come to the fore but to these brave women we salute you. To the ones who have always been screaming but we refused to listen or didn’t pay attention we are sorry for letting you down.

It’s our collective responsibility to speak up against predators like this. Thank you Busola for being so brave. We are all with you. pic.twitter.com/KfXA7EVTo4

I remember when abuse allegations were being looked into in a girls’ school & many victims were reluctant to speak because they’re now married, and were concerned about likely effects. Timi standing up for his wife and Busola speaking up hopefully, will inspire others to do same.

What the heck is this that I am reading? Do you see why the rape culture is entrenched in this country? This is not the first time this pastor is being accused and yet he is a free man. He blamed the devil? The devil should help him serve the punishment https://t.co/dJTIFUkdRk
