Veteran Nollywood actress, Regina Askia, has said that the decision of the senior pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo to step aside from the pulpit over rape allegations was a small victory for those who have suffered sexual abuse.

COZA Protest: Two Arrested As Hooded SSS Officials Storm COZA

Two unidentified men have been taken into custody by security agents after they turned up at a planned protest outside the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Abuja.
