She accused the pastor and his wife of being responsible for the death of her friend, Tega, who was also a choir member, saying she was maltreated.
Kalu-Ude also accused the cleric of suppressing his critics through occultic power, claiming that people who want to speak up about the “evil” going on in the church either fall ill or die mysteriously.

“Dearest Tega, your death was so unnecessary but it will not go unchecked or unpunished. I’m so broken.
“@BiodunFatoyinbo@ModeleFatoyinbo@BnbLadies and all your sycophants who move at your command.
“People may not speak because they are afraid of you, I don’t blame them. I was like them too. But I’m no longer afraid. I left my fear by your gate on the day of my last worker’s meeting in your cult.
“I’ve never seen such cruelty; not paying workers’ salaries for months but expecting them to still show up every day. Driving them out of the house even to point of nearly putting Catherine on the streets. Clearing the entire house of every furniture and appliance so that those that were still left would leave.”
Church yet to respond
Daily Trust stated that it contacted the church for reaction but one Eyitayo Fatogun, a COZA official, who answered the call requested for a written note before any response would be given.
The church official was quoted to have said:
“Write to us, we will respond."
Legit.ng notes that Fatoyinbo is not new to controversies. In 2019, Busola, wife of popular singer, Timi Dakolo, accused the cleric of raping her several times when she was a member of the church.
