Rape scandal: Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo steps down as senior pastor of COZA


Following calls for COZA pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo to step down as the leader of his church after he was accused of raping a minor, the embattled pastor has revealed he will be taking a “leave of absense from the pulpit of the church”.

He made this announcement via his official Instagram account. He said he arrived at this conclusion after praying and seeking “spiritual counsel from the church leaders around the world.”

Pastor Fatoyinbo made the announcement days after the hashtag #PastorStepDown began trending on Twitter and Instagram after Busola Dakolo accused him of raping her twice when she was a minor, and fresh out of secondary school.

Meanwhile, CEO of Sapphire Scents, Wale Jana, who has been defending Pastor Fatoyinbo while calling out singer Timi Dakolo and wife Busola Dakolo, was quick to react to Pastor Fatoyinbo’s statement.

He commented: “The lord is your strength Baba. We love you.”
