Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo takes "leave of absence" from the helm of affairs at COZA

Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has taken a leave of absence from the church. He made this announcement on his verified Instagram page this morning amidst the rape allegation by Busola Dakolo which was raised in a recent video interview.

In his own words,

“The past few days have been sobering for me. I have taken time to pray and seek spiritual counsel from Christian leaders around the world, who feel very concerned about the ongoing reports in the media. I have solicited their guidance on actions, I should take that are honouring to our Lord Jesus Christ and the work, he has called me to do."
“Drawing from their counsel and that of the leadership of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly and owing to my love for God’s word and sacred honour of my calling, I have decided to take a leave of absence from the pulpit of the church.”

"Although it would break my heart to tatters to stay a day without doing ministry, I believe it is the right thing to do at this time. It is in the interest of the flock of Christ that issues concerning me do not become a distraction to their worship of their Lord.

This step enables to submit to the concerns of my spiritual mentors as they consider all the issues that have been raised against me.

My confidence in the Lord remains unwavering. Though I do not understand all that is happening, I trust the Lord to lead and guide me one step at a time. Kindly pray for me and the congregation of COZA as we seek the face of the Lord during these turbulent times.

Thanks you and God bless."

This is no doubt in response to many calls that the senior pastor step down as the matter is being investigated.
