Biodun Fatoyinbo, the CEO and Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, has stepped down from his position as senior pastor. This is coming a day after a massive protest was staged at his Lagos and Abuja churches after Busola Dakolo revealed Fatoyinbo raped her multiple times.
Fatoyinbo disclosed this in a statement asking the people to pray for him as he claimed not to “understand all that is happening.”
He said, “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.
He concluded the statement by saying;
“Owing to my love for God’s work and the sacred honour of my calling, I have decided to take a leave of absence from the pulpit of the church,” Fatoyinbo said in a statement on Instagram.
Below is the Statement he released on Social Media Today, July 1st
