The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has revealed that the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), which owned by alleged rapist Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, is not a member of their association.
In a statement released Thursday, CAN said while they are concerned about the rape accusations by Busola Dakolo against Fatoyinbo, they however can’t do much about it because he is not a member of their association.
“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,” the statement read.
CAN nevertheless condemned the gradually increasing sexual immorality happening in the church of God.
“While efforts must be made to get to the root of the matter through thorough investigation, the association condemns totally, any act of infidelity either by a pastor or any member of the church of God,” the association added.
“We urge all ministers of the gospel to shun all appearances of evil especially, unregulated closeness to persons in the church. Rape by every standard is sinful and an act of wickedness.”
