Following the alleged rape scandal that rocked the Nigerian media space yesterday after Busola Dakolo (Wife of popular singer, Timi Dakoko) accused Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) of rape when she was a teenager, several Nigerians have taken to social media to jump on the #PastorStepDown trend in a move to pile pressure on the COZA pastor to step down pending the investigation of the allegations of rape.

Let the hashtag #PastorStepDown ring to the four corners of the church. Let us shake this one like there is no tomorrow.— Akah Bants (@akahnnani) June 29, 2019
I beckon on every good man and every woman. Every twitter warrior and every Instagram influencer. Every celebrity and every pastor to not rest on this one.

Whether you raped her or not
Whether you are a liar or not#PastorStepDown #PastorBiodun till the matter is resolved.
You know the Bible, you know what 1 Corinthians says about things like this. Respect yourself now while you still can.
Waking up this morning to DMs from past members/workers of COZA narrating their ordeals. They don’t know each other, 2 of them are strangers to me. Their stories are similar, some were lucky to get away some weren’t. Some were threatened by the church #PastorStepDown— Kemi Lala Akindoju (@lalaakindoju) June 29, 2019

Innocent or not.— Chidinma Chikwe (@dinmachikwe) June 29, 2019
Let the law have its full cause. You are incapable of pouring into anyone as it seems.
The kingdom is not an encouragement ministry or for motivational speakers and sleek orators.
Take Responsibility #PastorStepDown

I join thousands of Nigerians that Abiodun should step down #PastorStepDown— Blessing _Eucharia (@BlessingEuchar1) June 29, 2019
This can actually be the beginning. The purge we want to see in our nation has to start in our places of worship!— Oluwaseun P. (@OluwaseunP) June 29, 2019
If we can learn to hold men (presumably chosen by God) accountable, we'd definitely be able to hold men chosen by other men accountable as well!#PastorStepDown
The honourable thing to do is to step down. No preaching, no guest ministering, no bamboozling of a congregation, no claims of being under attack. #PastorStepDown and let other people run the church until further notice.— Kemi Lala Akindoju (@lalaakindoju) June 29, 2019
So happy that Akah Nnani, a COZA church member and public figure is doing this🙌 #pastorstepdown #SurvivingBiodunFatoyinbo pic.twitter.com/ShKbffzyLz— Tessyama❤️ (@tescool) June 29, 2019
..hit the church years back. The 'church' should have heard from the leadership about those allegations against their pastor and what they have been doing and temporarily safe the pulpit from this embarrassment until investigation is concluded. #PastorStepDown— Oluwasegun Owa (@oluwasegunowa) June 29, 2019
No! We’re going to ruin this man!&every other powerful man of authority who thinks it’s okay to do this and go free. This will make pastors become more accountable. That’s what we need to move forward in Nigeria! This generation will not sit by and watch #pastorstepdown— Ayobami Ashaolu (@AyobamiAshaolu) June 29, 2019
If that pastor has sense, he should have stepped down by now.— YourWeddingReceptionMC (@remigist) June 29, 2019
Because of him, it’s easy for people to attack the church directly instead of just facing him and that’s mostly an attack on Christianity as a whole.
But what do I know?#PastorStepDown
Apparently pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo already has history with women for being a sexual predator so what more evidence do we need?? These ladies coming out are enough evidences.#IStandWithTheTruth #IStandWithBusolaDakolo #PastorStepDown— FineGirlBussy🦋 (@oluwabusayooo) June 29, 2019
#PastorStepdown is the ideal thing for pastor Biodun to do pending when these weighty allegations against him is resolved in court— yo gurl (@damii__y) June 29, 2019
He needs to step down. #PastorStepDown How will the congregation look at him preaching on Sunday?— KEVIN’s KHALISY(isydulce) (@_christiie_) June 29, 2019
Chicks no mention Pastor Adeboye, babes no mention Pastor Oyedepo. Why does your name keep reverberating constantly? Na only you get sugarcane anointing ni? Kilode!? #PastorStepDown— Ola Said (@Olasaid) June 29, 2019
