COZA cancels special yearly programme amidst rape allegations against founder, Biodun Fatoyinbo

The Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly in Guzape, Abuja, Pastor Abiodun Fatoyinbo, has cancelled the church’s yearly programme, “Seven Days of Glory”.

 

Fatoyinbo who was accused of rape by wife of singer, Timi Dakolo, Busola, announced this while addressing members of his church this morning. 

 

The programme, which usually begins every July 1st and holds for seven days, was meant to start tomorrow but as it stands now, it has been cancelled. 

During service today, Biodun Fatoyinbo, founder of the Commonwealth Zion Assembly (COZA), announced a suspension of “Seven Days of Glory,” a yearly programme of the church, saying the “Holy Spirit” directed him to do so.

Although he denied the allegation, the pastor has been widely criticised, with some Nigerians on Twitter asking him to step down.

 

Fatoyinbo told the congregation that he did not want to put the guest preachers through the stress of coming to COZA amid such allegations of rape. 

 

The pastor was hailed by hundreds of congregants who yelled, “we love you pastor”.
