Months After Frail-Looking Photos Emerged, COZA Pastor Finally Breaks Silence On Battle With Sickness
The founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has finally broken his silence on how he battled an undisclosed illness.
However, Pastor Fatoyinbo addressing concerns over his health after frail and lean photos of him emerged online last year November, said that he was truly sick.
In the photos, Pastor B as he is fondly called was seen with his wife, Modele, and other members of the church who were at Old Trafford, Manchester, England.
According to one of Nigeria’s news media ‘Whistlers’, reports that Fatoyinbo on Thursday, May 11, 2023, joined other Pastors in Ota, Ogun State, for an International Minister Conference organized by the presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo.
Pastor B at the event confirmed he was sick last year as he testified about his recovery but was silent about the nature of his sickness.
Pastor Fatoyinbo said amid the medical attention, his mentor, Bishop Oyedepo was praying and speaking over his life.
He said: “Last year, I was a little bit ill and against everything, the medical sciences, Papa (Oyedepo) spoke, and I am here today. And I want to give God the glory!”
The clergyman speaking further said he was a drummer boy in the early years of Winners Chapel before God called him to found a church.
He therefore testified that he had been studying Bishop Oyedepo from afar over the years but his life experienced a turnaround that was phenomenal when he became close to him.
Pastor Fatoyinbo added that COZA, like Living Faith Church, is now buying properties and operating like a franchise where everywhere looks like the headquarters after he established a mentor-protege relationship with Oyedepo.
He had been in the eyes of the storm some few years back after he was accused of sexual misconduct.
The 47-year-old pastor had been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. First in August 2013 when Ese Walter alleged that Fatoyinbo had a sexual relationship with her while she worked in the church.
