The members of COZA church today were super excited as they celebrate the return of their senior Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo to the pulpit to preach.
On the first of July, Pastor Fatoyinbo bowed to demands of the public to step down from the pulpit after Busola Dakolo accused him of raping her at twice at the age of 16.
The rape allegation attracted so much attention from Nigerians who attacked the Pastor, asking that he steps down until he is cleared of the charges or can atleast prove himself innocent. Biodun Fatoyinbo denied the allegation by Busola Dakolo.
Returning back to the pulpit after several fights, condemnation and attempt to save the church and the pastor today, made the members in attendance at the church celebrate his return.

Even though Busola Dakolo‘s allegation went viral on social media, with some saying it had triggered Nigeria’s #MeToo moment, she was not the only one who came out to accuse the Fatoyinbo of rape.
The social media campaign has led to thousands of people sharing their stories of sexual abuse and harassment since 2017.
