COZA CANCELS ANNUAL 7-DAY PROGRAMME OVER ALLEGATIONS OF RAPE

Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

The Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly in Guzape, Abuja, Pastor Abiodun Fatoyinbo, has cancelled the yearly programme, “Seven Days of Glory”.

Fatoyinbo announced this while addressing congregants on Sunday.

The programme, which usually begins every July 1 and holds for seven days, has attracted several international pastors like Bishop T.D Jakes and Creflo Dollar in the past.

Fatoyinbo said his mentors and leaders had advised him to cancel the programme.

He said he didn’t want to put the guest preachers through the stress of coming to COZA amid such allegations of rape.

The pastor was hailed by hundreds of congregants who yelled, “we love you pastor”.

Fatoyinbo said his “elders” were handling the matter even as he said he was not happy with the huge deployment of security agents in the church.

Mrs. Busola Dakolo, the wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo, had on Friday accused Fatoyinbo of raping her 20 years ago.

The allegation caused a storm over the weekend with groups calling for the arrest of Fatoyinbo while some of his supporters have stayed by his side.

The COZA founder has, however, denied all the allegations levelled against him.
