The founder of the Common Wealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has explained that it was timely legal advice that prevented him from showing up at the probe panel instituted by the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
He said he could not honour the invitation because his lawyers feared that he could be victimised. The legal advice was premised on the press statement issued and personally signed by the PFN President Bishop Felix Omobude where Pastor Biodun was publicly derided.
The stylish Pastor was then convinced beyond reasonable doubt that the PFN was already prejudiced and may not conduct an impartial session. Recall that the COZA senior pastor had spent time building his church and had endured many years of difficulties before excelling in ministry affairs.
Then, suddenly, the accusation spilled out stunning members of the public at first, but as the dusts settled, opinion divided as to the real motive behind the rape claim coming two decades after!
