The Whole Truth And Nothing But… My Affair With Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA Abuja – by Ese Walter

A lady named Ese Walter shared this story on her blog and since makes trending topic on social media. Well this is just one side of the story. The lady (Ese) accusing a pastor with the Common Wealth Of Zion Assembly of manipulating her sexually/spiritually. Below is her story.

This article contains stories that most ‘church people’ don’t want to address. So, if you are one of those living in denial and covering up crap going on in the church, this is where you should stop reading. Thanks for stopping by.
Now, for the rest of us, please sit down and switch on your open mind. I want to talk about something I have kept bottled up inside for longer than necessary. I have also decided to use real names, as my defense for any accusation of slander is justification. I tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but. However, feel free to throw your doubt around but know that I am past the shaming game (where victims of abuse are shot down by blame) I am no longer a victim but a survivor who is sharing her experience to help others caught in same web of abuse, guilt and shame. We only get to live once right? So here, it goes…
I recently came to know this event too was abuse (recently here means about 6 months ago). It has literally been eating me up having to drive by another billboard advertising preachers, or hearing his name, or even trying to ask about the validity of the entire salvation story and whether or not there is a God that truly watches over his people. That being said, I’m just going to say it as it is. This is a recap of my affair with Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA (Common Wealth Of Zion Assembly) Abuja chapter. This affair I have come to know as a form of abuse as you would see the different elements of abuse very present.

I met Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo many years ago. I was getting bored of the church I was attending and someone suggested COZA. At the time, I had never heard about it. My friend said, go there, I’m sure you would enjoy the word. But he also gave me a strong warning. He said he would advice that I remain a member only and not join the workforce. I agreed. The first time I attended COZA, I felt it was my church and decided I was going to plant my ass there. About eleven months had gone by and I was still attending the services quietly and faithfully. I really did like the church. One day a worker in the church approached me that the senior pastor wanted to see me.

Me? I thought. Why would the senior pastor want to see me? Not the second man but the head nigga in charge? Ok na! I started to think my sin was oozing so bad the pastor could tell I needed Jesus. (Poor old me.) I saw him at the end of the second service (they had two services at the time) and he said to me that he would like me to work with him. I knew I had no intentions of becoming a pastor so I had to ask in what capacity. He said he’d like for me to join a department, preferably the Pastoral Care Unit (PCU).

A few weeks later, against my friend’s advice not to join the workforce, I was a PCU member. All of a sudden, I had some status in church. I was ‘somebody.’ Dress had to be on point, hair, shoes and what not… As workers, we were literally trying to outshine each other or so it seemed. Anyways, I felt like I was a privileged member of an elite circle. Hehehe. (It did feel good though, for the most part.)

About a year after joining the workforce, I was on my way to London for a Masters degree program that would last two years. As was the rule for workers travelling, I wrote to say I would be away for 2 years and Pastor Biodun Fotoyinbo asked that I keep in touch by sending him my number and email when I had settled in London so he “makes sure I continue in the faith” because according to him, people loose their faith when they leave home and he wanted to make sure I didn’t. So, on that note, as soon as I got a phone line in London, I was sure to call ‘my pastor’ to say I arrived safe, had settled in and also gave my phone number.

We had spoken a few times especially when COZA started to stream online. I always watched and would give feedback on quality of production and share a little bit on the challenges I faced settling in a new land. One evening, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo called me that he was coming to London and needed me to help him make some hotel bookings as the person who was meant to do it couldn’t get it done (this was rather strange as I had never been involved in his travel itinerary) Later that day, he said it had been sorted and my help would not be required but that he would like me to arrange a cab to pick him up from Heathrow. I was happy to help my pastor from Nigeria and even saw it as a privilege. (I would later come to learn that all of this was a calculated attempt to hatch a plan that I suspect was set in motion when I was asked to join the workforce.)
The cab guy was there to get him the next day and when he arrived, he called to ask why I didn’t accompany the cab to pick him up (again, this was strange but I stopped my mind from overanalyzing the situation as I knew I had no business with his visit to London) About two hours later, he called me and said he would like to see me. When I arrived his hotel, I called from the reception but he asked that I come upstairs. I got to the room and tried to stop my mind from thinking why I was going to his room. As he opened the door and invited me in, I had to speak to my heart to stop its palpitations. My better judgment asked me not to go into the room but the kind of reverence I had for Pasotr Biodun Fatoyinbo bordered on fear and I steeped into that room.
“Care for a drink?” Asked Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
“No sir,” I said.
“You don’t have to be shy Ese, even if it’s alcohol, feel free and order what you want.” I wasn’t sure I heard my pastor asking me to order alcohol. I imagined it was a test and ignored the voice inside that was saying, “I’d have henny and coke please.” He proceeded to ask how I had been coping in London and if I was a committed member of any church. He also said he thought there was something special about me and wanted to know that I had not strayed from my faith. I really thought he had heard I was doing something I shouldn’t while in London but tried my best to focus on the conversation instead of my straying thoughts. He kept telling me to relax and feel comfortable with talking to him. After a few minutes, he asked that we go to the roof of the hotel as his room was a pent suite and had a connecting door to the roof.

While there, he sat on a reclining chair and asked me to come sit on his laps. This was a bit awkward for me and I froze for a moment as I asked why. He said he had told me to feel free with him and loosen up. I found myself strolling to sit on his laps. At that moment, I felt like a little girl who was experiencing something her mind couldn’t fathom. He asked me to kiss him and all I could think about was seeing him preach on the pulpit back in COZA Abuja, Nigeria, which was my home church. He again said ‘feel free Ese.’ And asked again, that I kiss him.

A few hours later, let’s just say, we were rolling under the sheets. It felt as though my mind had paused. I am not saying I was jazzed, (although it’s possible I was in some trancelike state and didn’t know it but I just was so afraid that I couldn’t say or think otherwise.) That was the beginning of this affair. A sexual affair that went on for a little over a week, DAILY!
I can hear somebody’s mind thinking, ‘well, you weren’t raped.” And I remember a pastor I opened up to when I couldn’t take all the mind games asking if I seduced him. No, I didn’t seduce him and no, I wasn’t raped but I felt trapped in this affair. Come to think of it, how could I have seduced him when I wanted nothing from him? I mean, I was too busy minding my business in London trying to get through with my masters program and I was overly comfortable. And even if I wanted to seduce anyone, it wouldn’t be a married man, not to mention a married pastor.
What I couldn’t reconcile the whole time, was how the same person who preached against the very things we were doing (i.e drinking in pubs, fornicating, committing adultery) was the same person endorsing and encouraging it.

At some point, I got really confused about what Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and I were doing that I had to ask how he handles it. I will never forget what he said to me. He said and I quote, “I will teach you a level of grace that you don’t understand.” My mind couldn’t fathom that somehow grace was enough covering for not just fornication on my path, adultery on his path and the many lies that was bound to follow what we were doing that was clearly abominable. I somehow dealt with the thoughts and fears that followed on my path. He had said to me that he wanted me to be his girlfriend and he would take me around the world and spoil me with money and things. Somehow, money had never been one of the things that motivated me (I am from a home where all my needs have been adequately met) In all my ‘badness’ through finding myself, I never did things I did for money but more of rebellion against rules and authority.

Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo also said to me that he had a dream where I exposed what was happening to the media. Said it was all over the place and that people were calling me the girl that caused chaos in COZA. He also said I should remember the bible said to “touch not God’s anointed.” I immediately started to rebuke the devil and said I could never do anything like that. I was almost swearing with my entire family as I thought really I had touched God’s anointed by submitting my body to be used. Little did I know at the time that all of these were ways to mess with my mind and even manipulate my thoughts.
Fast-forward a few months later, I was back in Nigeria and my church had become uncomfortable. Anytime I sat in church and listened to Pastor Biodun preach, I felt shame. I finally sent him a message saying I wasn’t comfortable anymore. I was confused and needed to talk about what had happened. He said I should meet him to talk and I did. It was a really weird meeting for me especially when he tried to kiss me at our meeting. I finally realized at this point that he couldn’t help me. I thought God was angry with me and I couldn’t pray so I decided to withdraw completely from COZA. This was the beginning of my mental torture. I couldn’t talk to my family because already, I was the only one attending a different church and somehow my mom never liked the idea. As the days went by I tried to use drinking and smoking to cover up the deep shame and guilt I was battling with. But as soon as the high was over, the thoughts came back and I felt stuck like I couldn’t move forward.
I felt I had to talk to someone and I decided to speak to my then good friend, Ernest Akale but unfortunately for me, Mr. Ernest did not have the capacity to hold what I said to him. He broke down completely the days that followed and I found myself having to pause how I was feeling and what I was struggling with to help my friend be strong. After a while, he withdrew from not just me but his then fiancé and friends. I had to then tell the fiancé what had caused it (she suspected we were having an affair so I had to clear the air) To my surprise she was a lot stronger than her man and told me to suck it up (I’m paraphrasing). She said if she were me, she wouldn’t leave the church but stay to torment Pastor Biodun and collect money from him. Ok! That sounded extreme for me, as my intention was not to blackmail but to heal my broken self. Anyways, I finally found the courage to speak to my then unit head who said he was going to talk to Pastor Biodun but didn’t have the liver to do so. Before long, the story was spreading and naturally getting twisted.
I went to a new church and it seemed like the COZA bug had chased me there. The pastor would always refer to COZA as some example and each time that was done, it seemed like a spear was thrust through my chest. One day, I broke down in the service and started crying uncontrollably, as I couldn’t take another mention of COZA and the pictures it painted in my head.

Very long, boring story cut short, for the last 5 months I gave the whole church thing a big space and break. I wasn’t sure I believed in God. I wasn’t sure I understood what it meant when people said ‘Jesus saves” and I definitely wasn’t sure how to deal with the mental torture that was affecting not just me but my relationships with family and friends. I was very unstable, fearful and worst of all guilty. I got a chance to talk to Pastor Folarin of COZA Lagos Chapter, popularly called Pastor flo about everything. I made an effort to reach out to him because I realized the right thing to do was talk to an elder in the church and seek some sort of remedy to a wrong I believed had been done me.
Instead, Pastor Flo said, Pastor Biodun had confessed to him and they had ‘talked’ about it and somehow that was supposed to be Ok. He asked what it was I wanted coming to talk to him about it when I did, I told him I realized what happened between Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo and I was wrong and not just that I felt abused and manipulated. I also said I thought it was wrong for Pastor Biodun to go on preaching without taking time to deal with his personal character flaws. I said I thought he was danger to all the young women that attended the church. Come to think of it, maybe he meant if I wanted something monetary or material (as someone had suggested when I opened up to her) but the truth is, I never wanted his money (or is it the church member’s money.) All I wanted was to meet with him and have him accept that he misled me, betrayed his wife and the church he pastors. I wasn’t the only lady in COZA who had been a victim of his sexcapades and manipulative patterns but I was the one who could come back after months of struggle with not just my faith but also my affair with him. And I wanted to set things right. I wanted to talk to Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo maybe for closure and I felt like I needed an apology because he played the “touch not my anointed” card to keep me locked in guilt, shame and fear when all along it was a calculated plan and I dare say, it started when he asked me to join the workforce.

Not to mention the audacity to talk about teaching me a level of grace I didn’t understand. I had no intention of understanding a grace that would permit me to go on doing things that were wrong and what’s worse having to carry the burden for almost a year.

Different surprising advises came up in the weeks that followed the rumour making rounds. I was told to hush because Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo had been a cultist in the past and could send people to shut me up. All my so-called friends in COZA withdrew from me and treated me like I had the plague. What was worse was Pastor Flo finally saw my then pastor to ‘talk’ about what had happened with Pastor Biodun and lied that it happened once and was a mistake. My question then became, ‘do these people even care how broken I had become?’ ’do they care about the emotional and spiritual welfare of the people they were pastoring?’ The sad answer was NO. Most of us old members of COZA kept leaving but they couldn’t care less. What was important was to keep growing the church and having more and more cars with stickers that read “More than enough.” Back then, I always felt horrible when I saw another car drive past me with the sticker. I was breaking, I was struggling but no one could help. All they could do was ask me to hide so Pastor Biodun’s goons don’t hurt me. And then the interesting one was if I had evidence to prove my claim. Let me just say here that, it isn’t a claim, it’s a confession to free me from all of the guilt and shame I have had to live with for no reason at all. (That being said, I have evidence to prove all I have said here, the latest being a 58 minutes recording of my meeting with Pastor Flo a few months back)

This is my confession and I cannot begin to describe how much weight has been lifted off of my shoulders just pouring the truth out about what went down. So, to all my ex COZA friends gossiping about me, get your facts right. To those who said they’d help me deal with the pain but didn’t, I forgive you, I have learnt how to deal with it and I am doing just fine. To those who fear for my safety saying Pastor Biodun would send people to shut me up, I really have gone past fearing for my life. To live is gain and to die is Christ (or how does Paul say it again?) And to the only person who ever supported me through it all, thank you, I am learning to be brave. Please don’t think I am perfect in all of this but in line with living my authentic life and putting all forms of abuse behind me, this is where I press the stop button and stop the bleeding. This is where I break the silence and call the church to stand up for what it has been commissioned to do. If you will not enter the Kingdom, please don’t stop others who are trying to enter.

I still remember when I used to nurse the idea of digging up emails, text messages, hotel billings (as once I used my card to pay for his room when his master card failed to work) to prove there was an affair. It was pathetic. Why for the love of heaven was I trying to dig up evidence? I am satisfied setting the record straight. I am ready for any shaming or bashing that would follow because the truth is, because of what I have suffered and come through, I am really not moved by what people say or think about me anymore. I am a stronger woman and a damn abuse survivor seeking to connect with other victims of abuse to show them how to deal with the shame, hurt and guilt and how to come out stronger. Turning their mess into their message.

I am Ese Walter and I have gone through all forms of abuse from family, boyfriends, my ex pastor and some strangers not to break me, but so I stand and so I qualify to help victims. My scars have qualified me and when all is said and done, I will still be standing. I AM WOMAN, I BEND, I DON’T BREAK!
Cheers to the freaking weekend!!!

  1. The account of Ese Walter is annoying. She is a consenting adult therefore was not raped by the named pastor. Much as what the pastor did was wrong if her story was true but I charge her to God to God because she was an instrument to leading this man astray. She should have refused and not come online to cast aspersions on him. She is equally guilty as charged because she was not forced. He is a man before of God and that could be his one of His short coming and should not be crucified but to be prayed for as the devil is using this a way to bring the name of God , the cross and salvation in vain. Therefore Ese you have incurred God’s wrath by consenting to this excapade if true and coming on line to publish. By doing this you have lead many astray.

  2. One of our major problems in this country is self inflicted ignorance. That’s one major reason why this country is finding it difficult to move forward. We have a population of about 160million which is made of 80% hypocrites. We see and know the truth but can’t say it. Why would people in their right frame of mind insult this Ese lady? I don’t know if this story is 100% true, but what I know is for every rumour, there’s an element of truth. This things happen in churches right under our nostrils but yet we turn a blind eye because it involves a ‘Man Of God’.
    Shame on us. Some guy just wakes up and decides to start a church and we begin to worship him cos he has called himself whatever title he decides to use. How do we know he his truly a man of God? Anybody can read and interprete the Bible afterall, its written in english or whatever language we understand depending on where we come from. How do we know if they are called by God or it they were the ones who called God?
    For crying out loud, let’s speak the truth and free our consciences. Let’s not be blindfolded in this religious days of ‘ Do as I say and not do as I do’. If d normal so-called guy does this things its no news cos we are meant to be the ones who are supposedly allowed to go astray. So we’ve been so brainwashed to believing the Pastors don’t and even when like in this something has come up, we jump to the defence of the worldly holies.
    God will certainly judge us all but from incidents I am well aware of and now this recent one, I know better than to be fooled by a human just like myself. It pays to respect all equally and take nothing above anybody cos we all are flesh and blood and not God. Ese’s story is one to learn from cos the church in the first place is dominated by women cos they are easily cajouled to believing anything and evertything and I believe that’s what got Ese into this (if its true). Let the truth be told please and stop castigating the poor lady even though she has her fair share of the blame as well.

  3. I don’t know if you are a believer or your level of your depth in God. You don’t have a right to insult any man of God. You wil, injure God’s wrath.its not up for argument or discussions. The devil gets us to do things through our weaknesses. My stake her is that Ese has family, why would she come online. She is a adult for crying out loud. There are loads of God and women of God out there. Christianity is not and can never be a religion. It’s means following Christ. A man of God preaches to you but I is your duty to study the Bible for deeper knowledge. Hosea 4:6 no excuses . On the judgement day, Pastor leading you astray will not be an excuse. The Bible says test all by the tenets of the Kingdom found in the Bible

    • Being a man of God doesn’t excuse you from faults. Agreed, however his status as a *man of God* shouldn’t be why we refuse to expose negative events in the body of Christ. It has happened and whether she has a family or not does not negate this woman’s right to voice her part of the story. We can debate on how* she did it, but covering up these stories or pretending as if they didn’t happen helps no one. Joyce Meyers is a woman of God who was raped by her father and for a long time they continued the affair. Even after her marriage. Such events happen, unfortunately, and mindsets like yours that allow numerous abused women in Nigeria to keep quiet and they continue to suffer quietly. Nobody is perfect. Keeping quiet on such issues gives great life to the fallacy that we are perfect. Stories like this, whether it regards the guy (or girl) next door or a pastor, should not be hidden.

  4. I’m not gonna get into an arguement over my religious beliefs. I’m stating the obvious here so you can quote the whole bible just like this Pastors. I’m still saying we should be objective and not worship this fellow humans but worship God and asuch not be afraid to speak the truth no matter what. There’s a lot of terrible things going on in the our modern day church yet we keep mute all in the name touch not my anointed. Yes I’ll be judged on my own on the last day knowing that I stood up for the truth. Gosh!!! What happened to Revelation in the Bible where it is said that so mant fake men will rise up in the name of God in the last days?

  5. I dnt think ese is wrong most of this so called men of God are like that,if there are men that commit adultery more they are men of God I have experience a lot and I can prove it.they talk u in to sleeping with them,I have had *** with a lot of pastors when I was in the world and most of them are from this big churches u hear abt.Ese never lied

  6. To Ese Walter, contrary to others praising your revealing action to be brave, i’d say you are rather a disturbed soul looking for a cheap publicity stunt. yes i said that. for you to be in a graduate school when this happened proves you to be an adult. So that removes any form of manipulation. its a case of two adults involved in sexual escapade. The fact that you agreed to you going against your family virtue and beliefs shows you are a stubborn fellow. he made a pass at you and you voluntarily/involuntarily accepted. the bible is there for us all to digest and obviously know what is right from wrong. the pastor is human as much as you are. what if you had rejected initially? will he ever use any form of force on you? glad you never mention any of such, to the fact that you use your card to pay for his hotel bills. maybe you had even secretly fantasized about him…no one knows. whatever happened between you two is a sort of complimentary action. we should all remember, ‘once’ is an accident but two or more is actually planned incident. that said… to all ‘pastors’ ridiculing other true ones, God sees us all. Matthew 7…’ Do not judge…’. i’m sure this wasn’t all that transpired between you two, there must be an ulterior motive which might not be met. Have a good life.

  7. poor child… Ese Walters… young woman 4rm a privileged background. true to herself, conscience & belief. seeking closure 4 exploitation.
    I hv had my experiences too wt trusted “men of God” & am ashamed I didn’t hv ur boldness t warn others.
    d world needs more of ur type t remind us dt d endtime signs r real… proliferation of false prophets. they know themselves & God knows them too. its not our place t judge them but t expose dem as warning 4 other VULNERABLE young women who wd fall prey & loose their esteem.
    well done girl. if God b 4 u… who can b against u?

  8. Mathew 21:12. ‘And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves.

    It almost seem difficult to make comment or write on the matter that is rubbing mud on Christianity and casting doubt on the supposedly true integrity of our men of God.
    The difficulty that entangles fear- ‘all we like sheep’, ‘It could have been me’, ‘I am not any better and worse of all ’touch not my anointed’……an insane immunity clause?
    …..asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her………………Did Jesus condemn the crowd? Did Jesus celebrate the woman?
    You will reckon there are more questions to be asked than to be answered. Are you truly a Christian?
    Being a Christian is not a ‘bullet-proof jacket’ against sin neither is it a ‘sweater’ to cover sin, how much more being a church pastor.
    The ‘real’ story involving Biodun Fatoyinbo and Ese Walter can no longer be settled back door, neither can silence on Biodun’s part bury the stories and comments read by millions.
    Have you heard of the scandal that broke the marriage of Rev. Jamal Harrison Bryant of the Empowerment Temple, Baltimore Maryland, USA?
    Jamal still preaches and carries anointing, his church became small but big again.
    Without sounding judgemental I will want to say few words perchance directly to all involved in this matter; by this I mean Ese Walter, Biodun Fatoyinbo, Franca E, Okene boy and……(yet to narrate ordeal persons), Folarin Ogunsola aka ‘Flow’, Ernest Akale, Pastor J of God’s House, Emmanuel Oset of Canaan Ministry, The Christian body (CAN, PFN), YOU, Cozaites and the very victim of this balderdash, Modele Fatoyinbo.
    Ese’s public confession is meant to whittle our lives I suppose; admitting her own mistake and trying to forge ahead has called for mixed reactions, some condemning while others applause her pluckiness. Either way you swing there’s a lesson to learn.
    Ese: you know quite well by now that whatever you say (further) matters a lot. I will suggest you keep mute for a while until there is an intervention you feel you can truly trust.
    I believe your reason for coming public is not to cause chaos in COZA but to relief yourself of guilt. If this is true, let God be the judge and regardless of whatever conspiracy that emanates from ‘even’ the respected ‘men of God’……The world could be against you!, the story could transmute!
    Continue to pray to God for forgiveness and for salvation…..and these we all have to do for ourselves (not through church or any pastor). A lot of people are also praying for you, be strong.
    Are you awaiting Biodun’s robust statement? I am too.
    Biodun will be doing a lot of consultation by now, seeking advice and hoping for some supernatural rescue but keeping mute will excavate more of his past. It will get scruffier.
    So, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, no human is at liberty to condemn you but your very own conscience does.
    I will encourage you to read the story of Jamal Bryant, be sober and keep praying to God for forgiveness (as every one of us pray to God for forgiveness of our sins), make a robust statement that is true, and verifiable. It may break you (it definitely will) but it will make you as well. Beyond sympathy and condemnations you will be a different sort of teacher and you will learn new skills, lead new set of followers and follow new set of leaders.
    Again, continue to pray to God for forgiveness and for salvation…..and these we all have to do for ourselves (not through church or any pastor). A lot of people are also praying for you, be strong.
    It could be born out of eventual hatred for Biodun’s hypocritical? life, I don’t want to believe it is to gain unnecessary hype the stories stemming from Franca E, Okene boy and yet to narrate ordeal persons. It could also be born out of love for the truth, for the truth to emerge and prevail. All things work together for good. In all, it will be wrong to cast the first stone knowing fully well that we just could find ourselves in the same kind of sin.
    Should Biodun truly repents and make heaven, will you? Will I?
    I will plead that whatever you write further, whatever you say supplementary should be heal wounds and cause positive change. Let God be the judge.
    Real names were mentioned by Ese Walter: Folarin Ogunsola, Ernest Akale. This duo cannot be unspeaking, they cannot continue to ‘celebrate’ their leader except ofcourse they are birds of same pattern. It’s no betrayer to tell what you know confirming the stories or dissipating it. You are both accountable to God.
    Should Biodun truly confess, repents and make heaven, will you?
    Your own side of the story after Biodun’s robust statement will make no meaning, it will make you baser. I wonder what story you are telling your wives now.
    The name of Jehovah can never be soiled. So, all ye Marmon worshiping, ‘money freak’, ‘in-the name-of -tithe extorting men of god’ barawos, cultists and liars: Jehovah will judge you all!
    Can you imagine the number of people who stopped going to church because they now know the truth that these so called ‘men of god’ are actually leading them to hell?
    The Bible is never old fashioned; it must not be funkinized or tilted to permit sin.
    Pastor J, You reacted like as son will react seeing his father’s name being dragged to the mud: ‘I celebrate you’. I pray that God will celebrate you indeed.
    Emmanuel Oset, the world awaits your reaction (again)!
    The Christian body needs to talk and salvage their own name from this mess rather than flying to Abuja in search of filthy brown envelopes (and to collect tithes from politicians). God is watching.
    I encourage us to read our Bible more fervently so that we can look into our pastor’s face and call them liars when they try to twist the Bible to take advantage of us and attempt to lead us to hell.
    John 17: 3 ‘And this is Life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent’
    The whole scandal, despite it sounding like a Nigerian home video, is real and it’s a little fraction of constant happenings in the large community of clergymen. Oppressions.
    The extent to which we allow ourselves to be oppressed by politicians and now their brothers, the clergy, is entirely up to us. The Bible empower us to communicate to God through Jesus and not through ‘our father in the Lord’ ‘Daddy G.O’, ‘Papa’ or Father’. Please stop idolising these oppressors with Bible in their hands.
    Cozaites: you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free!
    Mrs. Modele Fatoyinbo: Pray for your husband.
    Biodun owe you apology, Ese does.
    You probably have gone through this before; you know your husband, you can tell what story is true of him. You have reasons to stay No, enough but I advise you stay with him, pray for him and support him through the valley he is heading. Biodun is your own ministry.
    No statement can ever be robust in this indignity. I call on the swaggerlicious elders of COZA to be Christ-like enough……………
