….ASK BISOLA DAKOLO TO PAY HIM ONE MILLION NAIRA
By Glam & Essence
A Federal High Court sitting in Bwari, Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, has dismissed Busola Dakolo’s rape allegation case against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) and immediately awarded a cost of N1m against her
The court declared the Dakolo’s case of rape against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo in his favour,declaring the pastor innocent of all charges levelled against him.
The judgement delivered was received with shock,following the outpour of anger Nigerians expressed when Busola ,the wife of musician ,Timi Dakolo,in an interview, accused Pastor Famoyinbo of raping her twice in Kwara State when she was 17. The interview went viral and generated so much reactions ,some in support of the Pastor and a lot more against him . Pastor Fatoyinbo however denied all the rape allegations.
With the latest ruling by the court declaring him not guilty of the accusations made against him ,while also awarding him financial payment of one million naira for damages to be paid by the claimant-Busola Dakolo.Those who believed in the pastor and trusted him, throughout his ordeal say this court’s declaration of his innocence, is actually that much needed vindication they had been expecting.
According to Justice Oathman A. Musa in her judgment, the matter amounted to injustice, and an abuse of judicial process as the case was empty and purely sentimental, adding that the case was aimed more at cruelty rather than obtaining justice.
It remains to be seen whether Busola Dakolo will pay the one million naira fine ordered by the court or if the COZA Pastor will pursue a case against Busola Dakolo and others who had condemned him .
