Nigerians have took to Twitter to express divergent views after a video emerged showing leaders in the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) declaring support for Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).

TheNewsGuru (TNG) reports Pastor Biodun was accused of rape by Busola Dakolo, wife to popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo.

The leaders, Reverend Jonah Samson, President of CAN Abuja and Reverend Israel Akanji, CAN President North Central, stated that they will stand by the church and that the gates of hell will not prevail.

”I assure you that we are with you and we will continue to be with you. We are in support of the church. We are in support of your pastor. We stand by him. and this church will continue to match forward. The I declare that the gates of hell shall not prevail against this church in the mighty name of Jesus” Reverend Jonah said

On his part, Reverend Akanji in his speech said Jesus expects his followers to be like the good Samaritan who was there to give help to a wounded soldier and not turn his back on such a soldier.

He also pledged his support to Fatoyinbo and COZA, adding that many Christians were praying for them.

Meanwhile, Kwamkur Vondip, the National Director, legal and public affairs of CAN, had said in a statement that COZA is not a member of CAN.

The statement reads in part: “The association recognises that COZA, to the best of our knowledge, is not a member of any of the families that belong to CAN.

“CAN, as an association; it is equally sad that there have been recurrent allegations of rape and infidelity against some gospel ministers and other Christians as well.”
