Pastor Biodun supporters stage protest in front of COZA Abuja

While the protest against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo around the premises of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly in Guzape, Abuja another counter-protest was staged in support of the accused cleric.
The pro-Fatoyinbo march was coordinated by a member of the church who declined to mention his name. The supporters carried placards affirming their support for the clergyman who has been accused of s3xual misconduct and rape against his members.

Pastor (Mrs) Modele Fatoyinbo has spoken up in support of her husband stating that all accusations are false and that her husband is not a rapist even as an unbeliever.

The supporters staged a protest in support of the clergyman. They carried placards with inscriptions describing how much impact the clergyman has made in their lives.
This came after some persons against the pastor protested in front of his churches in Lagos and Abuja Sunday morning.

While some persons (including videos circulating online) are claiming that some of the protesters were given N10,000 to carry the placard in support of the pastor, others are saying people should not be in a haste to judge the pastor.

    Personally I think this case should be investigated properly because it is not a small issue. If he is found guilty he must be punished,and for those shaming the victims Rape is not a child’s play and no rape victim should be judged because the experience is terrible….
