According to reports reaching us this morning, the embattled COZA founder and Senior Pastor, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has stepped down from his position and pulpit ministry.
This he said is a result of consultation with his fathers in the ministry and the church board.
On his Instagram page, where he also announced his “suspension,” he said he regrets the fact that he would be out of the ministry for now but that he has to step down for the sake of the church and his love for Christ.
Pastor Fatoyinbo was last week accused of rape by Timi Dakolo’s wife, Busola Dakolo when she was less than 18. Though he has officially responded to the allegation stating that he has never raped anyone before, even as an unbeliever. However, this did not make the news go away. In fact, some group of Christians gather in his church premises on Sunday to protest that he must step down until he clears himself of the allegation.
