Biodun Fatoyinbo: CAN Pledged Support For Former COZA Pastor (Video)
The Christian Association of Nigeria has said it stands with the founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo, amid allegations of rape made against him a few weeks ago.
Rev Dr Samson Jonah, CAN Chairman in the FCT, and Israel Akanji, who is the leader of CAN, North central, addressed the congregation.
Busola Dakolo, the wife of singer, Timi Dakolo, had alleged that Fatoyinbo, who leads churches in Abuja, Lagos, Ilorin, Port Harcourt and Dubai, raped her when she was a teenager.
Speaking during the service, the clergymen said they were impressed by the church and have been greatly blessed by the church, they also said the church supports and stands by Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Samson said, “It’s a pleasure being here and I assure you that we are with you and we will continue to be with you. We are in support of the church. We are in support of your pastor. We stand by him and this church will continue to march forward. I say and I declare, the gates of hell shall not prevail in any church in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.”
Akanji, in his address, noted that he had an obligation to show his support for Fatoyinbo.
He said, “I could have been living in Nasarawa State, Benue, Kwara, Kogi, Niger or Plateau. I could have been chairman living in any of those places, but by God’s mercy, I am presently living in Abuja.
“How can I and then the FCT (CAN) chairman hear that one church that God has a plan and purpose for is going through this Jerusalem-Jericho road and then we will walk and walk away? We will not do such a thing. We are here to just let you know, as he said, we are with you in prayer.
“The Lord will bring you out even stronger. Our pastor here, by the grace of God, will continue to be the voice of God to proclaim (to) the whole nations of the world the mysteries of Jesus Christ. So, we pray that the Lord will stand by you and we want you to know that you are not alone. You have many brothers and sisters that are praying for you.”
