The senior pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, Biodun Fatoyinbo has momentarily stepped down from his pastoral duties at the church, following rape allegations by Busola Dakolo.
Fatoyinbo made the announcement in a post on his Instagram handle this morning.
He said: “The past few days have been very sobering on me I have taken time to seek spiritual counsel form Christian leaders around the world who feel very concerned about the ongoing report in the media.
“I have solicited their guidance on actions I should take that is honoring to our Lord Jesus Christ and the work he has called me to do.
“Drawing from their counsel and that of the leadership of COZA and owing to my love for Lord’s work and the sacred honor of my calling I have decided to take a leave of absence from the pulpit of the church.”
Protesters besieged the entrance of the church in Abuja, yesterday, asking Pastor Fatoyinbo to step down over the rape allegations by Timi Dakolo’s wife, Busola.
