The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has revealed that it was taking necessary steps to address the rape allegation against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).
Naija Buzz News had reported how the pastor was accused of rape by Mrs. Busola Dakolo, the wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo.
CAN in a recent statement concerning the rape scandal expressed sadness that the Christendom had been subjected to ridicule by the scandal involving one of its leading pastors and its daughter.
“The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria is seriously concerned about the disturbing situation concerning Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the General Overseer of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, one of our leading pastors in the country, on whom an allegation of rape has been levelled by one of our daughters, Mrs Timi Dakolo.”
The Christian body in Nigeria in the statement released by its General Secretary, Joseph Daramola, noted that the body would intervene in the issue.
“Since both Pastor Fatoyinbo and Mrs Timi Dakolo are Christians, the leadership of CAN is already seeking ways to address the issues in order to heal every wound already inflicted on the parties concerned and the body of Christ in general.”
“As we seek the help of CAN elders and the Holy Spirit in resolving the current problem, it is our prayer that both parties will sheathe their swords and stop the media war in the interest of the Church and for the greater glory of God,” CAN said.
