Nigerians on Friday reacted to recent allegations by popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo that the pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo is allegedly sleeping with his female church members.
In the statement of the singer, he claimed that Pastor Fatoyinbo has not stopped the act of sleeping with girls in his church.
In a series of messages he shared, Timi Dakolo claimed that the Coza pastor and some elders in the church are covering the action of the pastor to the point of even paying to silence some victims.

#COZA come to Ilorin and ask girls about the pastor den u will know who to support and blame…. Awon scammer pastor

But if Biodun is giving these girls church money, then that's double tragedy though. My tithes should be used to fund jets and expensive suits not being spent on girls. That will be evil!! #COZA

After one demon that called himself a prophet charged me for prayers and i paid, he told me i was too weak so i need someone to stand in for me, i suggested my mum thinking it was prayer and fasting but "man of God" said no…….#COZA

Please let us be guided. The fact that you go to #COZA or the alleged molester is your pastor, doesn't compel you to defend these terrible allegations. Jesus did not die for you to be foolish.

Pastors possess a great deal of control, authority, or influence over others. They have the ability to act or produce an effect on their penitentiaries.
The manipulation of this power for sexual gain is predatory behavior, PERIOD.#COZA

My friend told her pastor to pray for me because i was 30 and single, the man told me to my face that there is no marriage in my future so he will need to do a serious prayer for me..
4 days later his assistant pastor called me and said i should book a #COZA

Timi is one celebrity that hardly drags people he never does it at all. For him to do this just know that something is underneath #COZA

In 2013 Ese Walters accused this same #COZA pastor of the same thing #TimiDakolo is talking about today but the next service he got a standing ovation in church from members. Six years later some folks are on here defending this same man following similar accusations. My Lawd pic.twitter.com/h2KBXKDrhI

I think it is time someone tells #COZA Pastor to step aside, and deal with his demons. No one forced him to be a pastor. If the world is still very much in him, he should call it quit, and start living his life in peace. If he wasn't a pastor, these won't be much of an issue.

Every time it comes to allegations against pastors Nigeria will begin to say rubbish.
But they forget the fact that all the pastors accused in the past still have their big churches.
you did not call them. but God did so be careful #COZA

When Jesus died, the curtain of the temple was cut in half so that ALL may come in. You don't need ANY PASTOR to intercede on your behalf. Go on your knees and pray.
If you feel God called you, then quietly enter theology school and follow due process. #COZA

With this #COZA pastor gist I have always believed it. When Ese Walter shared her experience, my colleague who schooled in Ilorin said the gist has always been on. That's the same reason he left Ilorin to Abuja. Apparently the wifey is fully aware.

For many that follow men to stay in church might fall but those that do trust in their God, I mean follow God diligently and not the representatives of God, may see his kingdom. Please stay steadfast lest you backslide. #TimiDakolo #COZA
