The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly Abuja went ahead with its service on Sunday even as a crowd of protesters expressed support for its embattled pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
The pastor is being accused of rape and serial sexual abuse of many women in the church.
However, the pastor’s wife, Modele Fatoyinbo, presided over the service during which some female members gave testimonies of how the pastor had impacted their lives positively.
A crowd of protesters bearing various placards trooped to the precincts of COZA in support of the pastor.
Earlier, a group of protesters had asked the pastor to step down.
Meanwhile, Fatoyinbo has announced the cancellation of the church’s open-air crusades tagged ‘Seven Days of Glory,’ and which were planned for Lagos, Abuja, Ilorin and some other cities.
In an announcement, he said: ““I am relating with all my mentors, be that as it may as what is going on. We are going to have prayers for everyone who wants prayer but we are not going to have 7 days of glory. We don’t want to put our guests speakers go through security checks” – Biodun Fatoyinbo”
