Nigerians on Twitter are currently talking about a video making the rounds online, showing Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, back on the pulpit, welcome newcomers between 4 weeks ago and yesterday (Sunday).
Punch reports that Fatoyinbo also delivered the sermon for that service, titled Sudden Victories.
Fatoyinbo had taken a leave of absence after Busola Dakolo accused him of raping her twice when she was 16.
The case is currently being investigated by police and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) also set up a committee to look into the allegations.
Watch video below:

All that talk about stepping down was for the birds. We are back to status quo. pic.twitter.com/MA8dYriVFu

I find it hard to believe that the #COZA Pastor mounted the pulpit and still had the church members cheering him on like a hero! ?
Religion proves itself again as the biggest brainwashing technique in Nigeria

#COZA If you cannot become a politician; an APC member, become a Pastor. Even Pastors these days go scot free after *Rape* If you've learnt nothing, learn this!
