The embattled Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA, Monday morning stepped down as the senior pastor of the ministry over alleged rape allegation by Timi Dakolo's wife, Busola.

Pastor Fatoyinbo, made this known in a post on his Instagram page on Monday, where he announced his stepping down from the pulpit following the saga.

He wrote: "The past few days have been very sobering on me I have taken time to seek spiritual counsel form Christian leaders around the world who feel very concerned about the ongoing report in the media.

"I have solicited their guidance on actions I should take that is honoring to our Lord Jesus Christ and the work he has called me to do.

"Drawing from their counsel and that of the leadership of COZA and owing to my love for Lord's work and the sacred honor of my calling I have decided to take a leave of absence from the pulpit of the church.
