Biodun Fatoyinbo, founder of the Commonwealth Zion Assembly (COZA), has announced a suspension of a seven-day programme of the church, saying the “Holy Spirit” directed him to do so.
Tagged “Seven Days of Glory”, influential preachers from the US, including TD Jakes, have graced the annual programme.
But speaking when he mounted the pulpit on Sunday, the pastor said he was unhappy about the scandal rocking the church.
Fatoyinbo has been under pressure since Friday when Busola Dakolo, celebrity photographer, accused him of raping her as a teenager.
Although he denied the allegation, the pastor has been widely criticised, with some Nigerians on Twitter asking him to step down.
Protesters marched to his church in Lagos and Abuja on Sunday, mocking him and his members.
But the pastor asked his congregation not to be provoked as they make their way out of the church.
The service ended one hour earlier than usual, with many vacant seats at the church’s branch in Ikeja, Lagos.
Not quite long after, some thugs were seen sharing money giving to them by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo to intimidate the peaceful protest.
