COZA Pastor: Protests and counter protests over rape allegation
Friends and sympathizers of Busola Dokolo, the wife of Nigerian entertainer who accused the founder and Global Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo of rape converged in the church area this morning and protested.
Some of the placards held by protesters read ‘We are watching you,’ ‘Your Pastor is not your God,’ ‘Thou shall not rape’ and ‘No to sexual abuse in my church’ among others with the hashtag ‘#ChurchToo.’
In similar vein, a group had a counter-protest bearing inscriptions saying that the pastor should be left alone
COZA members formed a human barricade with linked arms about 150 metres from the church auditorium in Guzape, Abuja.
Aside from the linked protocol officers of the church, there were scores of agents of the Nigeria Police Force and the Department of State Services.
