The embattled Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly(COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, has returned to the pulpit, weeks after stepping down.
Fayoyinbo had in July come under heat after he was accused of raping photographer, Busola Dakolo, 20 years ago,
Following heated protests, he had announced his decision to step down, while his wife, Modele, had taken charge of the church — a move which seemed to pacify protesters.
But he was back to his role on Sunday at the COZA headquarters in Abuja.
Delivering a sermon titled, Sudden victories, he said it was written in the Bible that Christians would always face persecution, but God would ensure that they are victorious.
He said, “As a Christian, you must face opposition. If God, who is holy and faithful has enemies, you are sure going to have.”
“In wrestling, any method can be used. When faced with challenging circumstances, pray, fast, decree, confess and prophesy God’s victory over your life.
“Most contrary situations around you are set up by the enemy to ripple your faith and keep you on a spot,” he preached.
Fatoyinbo prophesied that his parishioners would witness victory in the new month of August.
He is currently under probe by the Nigeria Police Force for allegedly raping Busola, who is also the wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo.
