The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has reacted to the ongoing ordeal of COZA Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
In its reaction, CAN President, Rev. Supo Ayokunle said the Christian body does not regulate how pastors operate their churches.
The Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Pastor Oladeji Adebayo, said CAN does not regulates how pastors operate.
Speaking with Telegraph on the matter, Adebayo said the body neither regulates nor intervene in the running of churches.
“I am sorry CAN does not intervene in how churches are running. Churches belong to denominations and these are the two bodies that regulate how pastors run their ministries, not CAN. CAN deals with intrareligious matters and stands between the church and the government.”
Busola had alleged that the COZA founder had forcefully raped her when she was just a 17-year-old girl.
In a swift reaction, Fatoyinbo denied the allegation, though admitted Busola once attended the same church with his family.
Fatoyinbo, consequently ordered his lawyers to institute both criminal and civil case against Busola. This move has been seriously condemned by Nigerians who have taken to social media to dare the pastor to take legal action against the celebrity couple.
