Days after COZA fresh scandal, ex-spiritual father of Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo speaks on rape allegation
Days after fresh scandal hits Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) Abuja, the former Spiritual father of Senior Pastor and founder of COZA, Pastor Emmanuel Oset declared that Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo is not ready to be helped to overcome his sexual weaknesses.
This was revealed by the presiding pastor of Champions’ Church, Ilorin while reacting to the allegation of rape against Fatoyinbo by celebrity photographer, Busola Dakolo.
Fatoyinbo has been accused by several women of having illicit sexual relations with them.
Eze Walters was the first lady to publicly alleged and give account of how Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo had a long affairs with her, culminating in sexual relations while in the United kingdom
Oset, to whom Fatoyinbo submitted until 2014, described his estranged spiritual soul as a man who cannot be helped by man or God.
He spoke on Thursday in an interview on Arise TV.
According to him:“Our Lord Jesus Christ knew that Judas had become a thief but it wasn’t Jesus who said so, it was John who said so. Not because Jesus was weak but because Jesus was hoping that this man would change,” he said.
“You always find in the scripture, the purposes of God are redemptive. Before God comes with judgement in any case, you will see that he would have tried to get through to the person. It is when His love has been rebuffed and rebuffed again that He comes with judgement. That is God’s procedure.
“God does not rule by force, he rules by love.
“People have spoken. People spoke in 2013 but you can only help somebody who wants to be helped.
“If somebody doesn’t want to be helped, even God will not be able to help him. His hands will be tight in that regard.”
Recalling his efforts to bring Fatoyinbo to order in 2013 when Walters allegations became public knowledge, Oset said: “When in August 2013, news broke out online concerning him and his ministry, as somebody he was close to as an elder I thought it was my responsibility to get across to him.
“I was preparing to go to the United States for ministry and after some efforts because it wasn’t easy to get through to him, his pastor in Ilorin here, I told him, get through to your boss and I want to share a thing or two with him.
‘’Eventually he succeeded, and he called me from Abuja. And I told him this news is all over the place and I want to hear from you and I want to also give you some counsel if need be.
‘’And he said he would get in touch. I said okay, I’m on my way to the US while I’m there if I want to get through to you how do I do it?
“I thought he would just say sir you can get through to me using my email. Then he said his fear that time was that he was being bugged.
“When I came back from the United States, I still tried to get across to him because my desire is always to please God. I am not saying this to impress anybody.
“I wasn’t part of those already making comments on the issue. I just wanted to see how I could be useful in terms of helping him, but he didn’t show up.
“I waited from August 2013 to April 2014. When he didn’t show up and he was coming to town, having meetings I was seeing his billboards in town, well, my wife and I said to ourselves we’ve done our bit.
‘’It was then I wrote him a letter and I said consider that we no longer have anything to do with you and your ministry. I didn’t post it, it was hand delivered by his pastor.”
