Modele, the wife of the troubled founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, has said whoever does not like or celebrate her husband cannot be her friend.
“I’m not your friend if you don’t celebrate this man,” Modele told church members on Sunday during service at the Abuja headquarters of the church.
She also maintained that her husband still remains the spiritual father of all branches of the church.
Fatoyinbo was accused of rape by Mrs Busola Dakolo, wife of a famous musician, Timi Dakolo; and another unnamed lady within seven days.
The COZA man of God, however, denied all the accusations and elected to leave the pulpit for the truth to be unravelled.
But Pastor Modele Fatoyinbo, during the church’s service on Sunday, stated that her husband is the “father” of all COZA churches.
The church currently has branches in Lagos, Rivers, Kwara and Dubai, with the headquarters in Abuja.
Modele, whose voice was barely heard because of the loud cheers of church members, said, “One of the things that I say about my husband is that I would have never had the opportunity — I used to be so shy to talk to one person. I used to let him do all the talking because I was a very introverted person”.
“But he was able to help me see like he was able to help a lot of us see, that there was greatness in me”.
“So, I don’t have a problem standing before you this morning. The Lagos church, the Ilorin church, the Port Harcourt church — anywhere he is, Pastor Biodun is the father of that church.
“I’m not your friend if you don’t celebrate this man.”
