COZA Rape Scandal: Pastor Fatoyinbo Demands Millions In Damages (See Court Papers Plus Updates)

There is a new development in the rape case against the Founder and Senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo. Recall that in June this year, celebrity photographer and mum-of-three Busola Dakolo, revealed in an emotional tell-all interview that the flamboyant pastor raped her when she was a teenager and since then it’s been one update after another. While pastor Biodun has not said much especially at the height of the outrage that greeted Busola’s revelation, the COZA pastor has now reacted quite strongly as he has just filed court papers asking the Federal High Court in Abuja to dismiss the rape lawsuit filed against him by the mum-of-three.

The COZA founder who asked for dismissal of the lawsuit on grounds of incompetence and frivolity, also demanded to be awarded N50m as damages.

Pastor Fatoyinbo filed the objection notice before Federal High Court, two weeks after Busola through her lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi, approached same court, demanding for a clearly worded apology on the front page of at least two national newspapers and two national television stations for seven days running consecutively.

In similar vein, the leadership of pastor Fatoyinbo’s church have released an official statement reacting to the rape allegation against the pastor, by the mum-of-three.

In the statement issued in Abuja by the Executive Senior Assistant to the Senior Pastor of COZA, Ademola Adetuberu, yesterday, September 21st, COZA said that Fatoyinbo never raped Busola.

Read the full statement below:

“We see this ugly development fuelled by envy and sheer jealousy as an unnecessary distraction and a fight from the pit of hell against the ministry that God gave Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, as well as a declaration of war against the Church of Christ to which COZA is a flourishing branch under God’s grace.

As a result of the recent unprovoked satanic campaign of calumny orchestrated against the leadership and members of our church, Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) by agents of darkness, the church would like to break its silence and clear certain misconception and misinformation being churned out in order to misguide members of the church, public and relevant authorities that we do not support rape.

We stand with anyone who has been a victim of rape. We stand by our Founding and Senior Pastor, Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, who has been at the receiving end of organized blackmail and all sorts of attacks because of his innocence and we are sure that our faithful and unfailing God will vindicate him very soon.

As for Busola Dakolo, justice will soon be served. We would like to, again, for the record reiterate that our Senior Pastor, Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo, has never had anything personal to do with her.

Busola was not raped by Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo and she had never been in a relationship with him either.

We are not unaware that certain pastors that felt threatened by the unprecedented growth of COZA and the grace of God upon His Servant are after some of our members, just making every effort to cash in on the attack against God’s servant.

There was nothing they had not done behind the scene until this rape scandal. They are accusing our Pastor of snatching their members. Some are even asking why he couldn’t remain in Ilorin.

Our focus is the Kingdom of God and winning souls for Christ. COZA is home to those who have sold out to Jesus.

At COZA, we believe that every sent servant of God has his or her harvest field given to him or her by God and not by poaching souls or believers of another ministry.

Those sponsoring these evils to desist however if they do not, the God of vengeance will visit them.

They should let Rev. Biodun Fatoyinbo continue freely with his divine mandate that our Lord Jesus Christ gave him. It is ungodly and sinful to be used by satan against the anointed.”
