Omoni Oboli, actress and film director, has set Nigerian Twittersphere abuzz following her submission on the rape narrative by Busola Dakolo, celebrity photographer. Busola, wife of Timi Dakolo, had claimed that Biodun Fatoyinbo, senior pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) sexually abused her as a teenager. Although Fatoyinbo denied the allegation, the pastor has been widely criticised; till he was pressured to step down. The award-winning actress took to Instagram to weigh in on the matter. Oboli shared a long epistle in which she said she was trying to get all the facts before taking sides in the rape scandal. Despite her support for Busola, she said that there were some inconsistencies in her claims which she believed was born out of ”truthfulness”. “The Bible warns us to “be quick to hear, be slow to speak, and be slow to wrath, and going by my personal experience of seeing how quickly many took sides without first getting all the facts, weighing it against the character of all the parties involved, given our antecedents, and then drawing conclusions from evidence and an objective comparative analysis of the accounts, rather than from emotions, envy, the thrill of seeing strife, I have waited to digest the whole matter first,” she wrote. “What’s her motive for speaking out? Was it just to spite the pastor in question? Was it to destroy his reputation, or gain some financial advantage? Was it to build followership through the scandal that would surely come, not knowing that the pendulum could swing in either direction, for or against her? What exactly would spur a wife of a reputable and beloved entertainer, a mother, a businesswoman, with a beautiful life, coveted by many, to come out to make this kind of accusation? “Given her antecedent of being a calm, ‘dramaless’ queen (unless Timi says otherwise), with no history of seeking attention or being overly dramatic (at least not publicly), how did she get to this point of going public at such a time as this simply to make ‘spurious’ accusations against a ‘man of God’, as some have said in a bid to sound ‘objective’? “I listened to the story, and because I know her husband and his personality, I restrained myself from trying to weigh in based on the emotions that came flooding in, but here’s the thing, there was some incoherency in some of the claims, not because I believe she lied about them, but in my opinion was born out of the truthfulness of the real account. Why do I say that? Because unless you planned your own rape, the accounts are expected to sound incredible and spurious, and I suspect that’s why we don’t have so many convictions in many rape cases. Is there a manual, or rapist playbook that’s being distributed to all would-be rape victims (aka all women, and some boys and men) that I missed that gives point by point descriptions.

While some users think she wrote the piece to show off her impressive vocabulary without making a valid point, others are highlighting the “comprehension issues’ of her critics. “It’s obvious what side of the fence Omoni Oboli is sitting going by her awesome write up. But those with huge comprehension issues have chosen to misinterpret her stance and call her names. She’s unequivocally on the side of Busola Dakolo, let that sink,” a Twitter user said. “Omoni Oboli was comfortably sitting on the fence. She was actually talking from both sides of her mouth. Why did she speak up now? Okay, there are holes in her story but there are no perfect rape stories unless they’re scripted,” said another user. This is what Nigerians had to say: It’s obvious what side of the fence Omoni Oboli is sitting going by her awesome write up. But those with huge comprehension issues have chosen to misinterpret her stance and call her names. She’s unequivocally on the side of Busola Dakolo, let that sink. pic.twitter.com/p3LGZEqAuP — Prins 👑 (@KindPrins) July 2, 2019 Omoni Oboli was comfortably sitting on the fence. She was actually talking from both sides of her mouth.Why did she speak up now? Okay, there are holes in her story buy there are no perfect rape stories unless they’re scripted. LMFAO😂😂😂. — Mercy Maye (@blackhibiskus) July 2, 2019 Kudos to Omoni Oboli for proving that many Nigerians are incomprehensible folks who just look at the surface, pick the opium that glorifies their overwhelming ignorance & rant trash. Many didn’t peruse what she put forth & the few that did barely comprehended. I laugh in consent — Private Masseur⚪️ (@Masseur_Josh) July 2, 2019 Omoni Oboli could have passed her message across in simpler terms. — J. (@officialjashin) July 2, 2019 “Omoni Oboli” Now I know why a majority of Ngrn students can’t write their final year projects, why they can’t attempt class assignments themselves, why they do ‘copy and paste’ to present their term paper. — Church boy, not an altar boy (@olusolaakinwale) July 2, 2019 Omoni Oboli said absolutely nothing in that her post. Pandering here and there without actually making a point. Not to mention how infuriating the first half of that post is — Adaeze (@Zikora_xx) July 2, 2019 Could there be dumb citizens anywhere in the world as Nigerian? See attached *Omoni Oboli* write up that’s causing traffic online right now!!! I doubt if comprehension is still thought in our schools!!! pic.twitter.com/s1leqylwVL — Drisu Monday (@drisu_monday) July 2, 2019 From “Omoni Oboli” write-up, you will know that she was a serious literature student😌😌 The only thing i understood there was her undying support for Bukola…. please aunty Omoli, next time consider us , science students when writing ✍️ — ∫hirlξƔ rafξals® (@Sby107) July 2, 2019 Omoni Oboli’s write up about the Coza pastor scandal has made me realize that most people on this app don’t read to understand, they read to attack just to feel relevant.Jumping into conclusion without prior understanding of what the write up is all about. — Uncle Jaykay! (@kruzblaq) July 2, 2019 Omoni Oboli said Busola’s case has a lot of irreconcilable facts. But that is how rape cases are. It is often so crazy, it is difficult to believe it. A lot of rape cases like these are lost because of this. We should learn to sieve the truth from these. How is this difficult? — Half and Half (@Probably_Dafe) July 2, 2019 Why will people not be getting ‘incoherent’ scores in jamb!🙄 Read comprehension and answer question, you will just be ticking answer without comprehending. Now the result is what I’m seeing in those that can’t comprehend Omoni Oboli’s post. — Votu Akpomejero (@VizzyBone) July 2, 2019 I think the problem people have with Omoni Oboli’s write up is it being too long. Majority of us don’t just read, more so when it is a long writeup. They just read the first few lines and went to town with their opinions. They got it all entirely wrong. — Aijay (@Aijaygurl) July 2, 2019 In communication you write, speak to express not impress, the reason a lot of people will misunderstand Omoni Oboli’s write up is because of her language use. — Iya Alase (@Abiike_Chopstix) July 2, 2019 The average Nigerian is the one insulting pples parent who don’t support Naira Marley, the average Nigerian can’t comprehend what Omoni Oboli wrote, the average Nigerian is the “Not all men/women” advocate, the average Nigerian is far from being objective….. 😁 — Ferdinand. (@Burmese__Tyga) July 2, 2019 What’s wrong with what Omoni Oboli wrote? Because she isn’t taking sides she is a terrible actress. How does her views on this issues affect her career? If you don’t understand her message go and ask your English teacher to help you out before jumping into conclusion. — Wise One (@onahi12) July 2, 2019 Copyright 2019 TheCable. All rights reserved.
