Actress Adesua Etomi has asked COZA Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo to step down from his position as the senior pastor of The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA)
This is coming amidst the rape allegation leveled against the man of God by Busola Dakolo, wife of the singer Timi Dakolo.
Adesua in a statement released today asked the pastor to tender his resignation to the Church administration pending when full investigation into the matter is done
The statement reads:
The law is in place for a reason. Till this issue is handled, till these allegations are investigated, till the law takes it’s full course, there should be no sermon on that pulpit from him. Someone else can preach for now. What is right is right.
This is coming after other Nigerians on social media called for the resignation of the pastor whom many people have alleged he had inappropriate sexual encounters with them.
One of the those people was a member of his church, Actor Akah Nnani who asked the pastor to step down whether guilty or not:
This issue has been addressed by the senior pastor. Pastor has said he never raped anyone in his life. Good! Praise God. Now what next?
Dear @biodunfatoyinbo The next thing to do sir, is to step down from the position of senior pastor. But I know you know this sir and the church is in fact already making arrangements for this because anything contrary to this would be unconscionable, corrupt and anarchic.
In proper states, governments, working systems, businesses and organisations even in the circular domain, the leader in question will step down first. INNOCENT OR NOT.
The only thing I want to hear on Sunday is pastor announcing to the church that he is stepping down and not a single word more to sway the emotions of the congregation or encourage them to defend on social media or even any sermon from him. Someone else can take the word.
