Following the recent allegations against Common Wealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) founder and senior Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo by Busola Dakolo, wife of popular singer Timi Dakolo who claimed he forcefully had sexual activities with her when she was 17. Nollywood Actor and integral member of COZA, Akah Nnani has declared that he is no longer a member of the church.
The claims which has led to a lot of outrage had protesters marching to different branches of the church nation-wide to stage a peaceful protest demanding that the pastor in question steps down until he is vindicated.
However, reports that reached us stated that the pastor still mounted the pulpit on Sunday, urging his church members not to fight the protesters but instead implored them to “pray” against the situation at hand.
Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo further told his members that he wouldn’t be making any comment on the rape allegations as he has been instructed by Elders of the church not to.
Apparently, the refusal of the pastor to step down might have disappointed the Nollywood actor, Akah, who took to his Instagram page to renounce the church
“After watching @busoladakolo account, I believed her 100%. But I was advocating for proper procedures of getting justice on this matter because of reasons best known to me. Again, I was still in shock too. I admit, I still am in shock. I’m also not a fan of jungle justice or court of pubIic opinion because I suffered it in secondary school wrongfully. But after the behaviour of the church organisation today on this matter, not just the pastor, there is no need.
It is shameful for me to call myself a member of that church. A friend said to me “his moves are like that of Pablo Escobar”. I couldn’t help but agree. It has taken me time, but I am finally here. We will say it for what it is.
Until facts state otherwise, Pastor @biodunfatoyinbo is a rapist. There is a syndicate around him that protects him, and this involves Pastor Flo of Lagos Church, Pastor Wole of PH parish, church staff, other ministers and I dare say, his wife. I am no longer a member of that church.
I call on every one who has a conscience to boycott @cozaglobal. Thank you to every Nigerian fighting. Thank you to every celebrity using their voice. You understand that your influence is not for you. Thank you. I drew strength from your voice.
We continue to pray for him that God will touch his heart to own up to his crimes and the light of God to expose everyone involved in the syndicate. I stand with Busola Dakolo, I stand with every woman who has been raped. I stand against rape and rape culture. I stand against the rot in the church. @timidakolo I am 100% with you. #istandwithbusoladakolo. I rest my case on this matter now. Let the place scatter!!”
