This comes after Fatoyinbo announced on Monday that he would take a leave of absence after Busola, wife of inspirational singer , Timi Dakolo , accused him of rape.
Busola alleged that the pastor sexually molested her twice within a week when she was 16.
However , Fatoyinbo denied the allegation and threatened to take legal action against the Dakolos .
Busola’ s claim brought about a series of allegations on social media from women sexually abused by clerics .
It also led to protests by a group consisting of 126 civil society organisations and individuals, under the aegis of the # ChurchToo Movement , outside the pentecostal church premises in Abuja and Lagos on Sunday.
But Fatoyinbo made an appearance on Monday , the first day of a one – week prayer and fasting of the church.
At the end of the event, which Modele led , her husband emerged from backstage wearing a red Balenciaga T-shirt and accompanied by three men to his designated seat in front of the congregation.

Modele told the congregants, to loud cheers, that no one was capable of replacing Fatoyinbo .
She said , “ Pastor doesn ’ t want me to talk.
It ’ s fine . I just want to tell you , pastor, because we have strangers , that on behalf of your sons and daughters , we have strangers in this house — strange sons and daughters .
But God will close the heavens over them in the name of Jesus .
“I just want to say we love you .
You are our pastor; nobody can take your place .
It’ s always good to assure people that you love them , not only when you feel that everything is fine with them , even much more when you feel that they are not (loved) . ”
Modele told the congregants that Fatoyinbo remained their pastor despite the alleged rape, which took place 20 years ago.
Turning to Fatoyinbo , she said , “ You know your friends when you ’ re in trouble. So , we don’ t want you to doubt in your heart .
As for Modele, until I see Jesus , my surname cannot change . So , you better calm down .
“ We love you and you have always taught us well .
You have always stood on that stage to teach us that even though anybody might be coming from anywhere , God loves them and accepts them .
You have never preached condemnation ; you have never peached that we cannot change or make it .
“ Nobody on earth can take your place in our lives in spite of ’ 20 years’ .
Where are you coming from ? Nobody can take your place . ”
Security measures at the church auditorium on Monday were relaxed unlike when protesters gathered outside the church premises on Sunday .
Members however underwent strict security checks before they were allowed in.
During the service , which began at 6 pm , the ushers cautioned people using their phones .
Our correspondent observed that a man who attempted taking a picture of the praise team was sent out of the auditorium .
Meanwhile , the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has warned that it won ’ t protect pastors who take undue advantage of their congregants .
In a statement on Tuesday by its President, Rev Felix Omobude , the PFN said it was disturbed by the rape allegation against Fatoyinbo , adding that “ the PFN will not shield anyone who crosses the line. ”
Omobude said , “The PFN is utterly shocked by these allegations, as the acts that have been alleged are not only criminal in nature but antithetical to the tenets of Christianity and a violent breach of the trust that ought to exist between members of the congregation and a minister of the gospel.
“ We strongly condemn this ignoble and bastardly conduct as alleged against Pastor Fatoyinbo . Our prayers , thoughts and support are with all those who have fallen victim as have been reported .
“The PFN strongly believes in the pursuit of truth and will ensure that truth is unveiled in this whole matter and appropriate sanctions served .
“Although Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has not in the past subscribed to the PFN , we recognise that he is a pentecostal pastor. ”
