Rape case: Court dismisses case against Fatoyinbo, charges Busola Dakolo N1,000,000


A Federal High Court sitting in Bwari, Abuja, has dismissed a suit filed by Busola Dakolo, wife of popular musician, Timi Dakolo, against the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

In a suit, filed by Busola, in September, she had accused Fatoyinbo of rape, stating that the alleged action of the pastor, as well as his denial in a statement, adversely affected her marital life. She, therefore, demanded “a letter of apology” from the cleric to show remorse for his misdeeds.

Fatoyinbo’s lawyer, Alex Iziyon (SAN), however, argued that the prayer could not be granted, describing it as a frivolous suit.

In her suit, which was filed on her behalf by her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and Co of Law corridor, Mrs Dakolo asked the court to declare that Fatoyinbo’s denial of his alleged acts contained jointly and/or severally through a press statement he released on June 28, 2019, had caused her continuous emotional distress and amounted to infliction of emotional distress on her.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police Force says the probe into the allegation of rape against Fatoyinbo is slow because the alleged crime took place 20 years ago.The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, said this during an interview. He said once the police are done with the investigation, the public would be notified regarding the next step.
