The founder and senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo had announced via Instagram on July 1 that he will be taking ‘a leave of absence’ from the pulpit of the church, following multiple rape accusations one of which was a rape accusation by Busola Dakolo, wife of Timi Dakolo.
Fatoyinbo added in his statement at that time, that stepping down will “enable me to submit to the concerns of my spiritual mentors as they consider all the issues that have been raised against me”.
It is not yet known if his “spiritual mentors” have arrived at any conclusions, but he has returned to the pulpit a month after stepping down.
Video shared today at his church in Abuja showed members rejoicing and giving him a rousing welcome as he mounted the pulpit. This went on for a while before the church finally calmed and he began preaching about ‘sudden victories’.
There were some key points which was tweeted on COZA’s official Twitter handle-
One of the tweet reads: “Preacher: Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo
Message Title: Sudden Victories
Message Text: 1 Timothy 6:12
As a Christian, you must face opposition. If God who is God, holy and faithful as He has enemies, you are sure going to also.

Pastor Fatoyinbo’s preaching also touched on Ephesian 6:12. He said:
The enemy is smart, the first step he takes to bring down a believer doing exploits is an investigation. He goes into an investigation to find what can bring you down.
