Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), has found respite in the court over allegations of rape.

Recall that the man of God had been alleged of rape by Busola Dakolo, wife of singer Timi Dakolo. According to Busola, she was raped by the pastor as a teenager, and while she was a resident of Ilorin, Kwara State.

In a case filed at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Court 12, sitting at Bwari, Abuja, the case brought against Fatoyinbo was dismissed.

Biodun Fatoyinbo’s team of lawyers, led by Dr. Alex Izinyon (SAN), argued that the prayers in the suit were ungrantable by the court and that the suit was frivolous and an abuse of court process.

Justice Oathman A. Musa, while giving judgment on the case, said that the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process. He added that the case is empty and purely sentimental. Justice Musa said that the case was aimed more at cruelty than obtaining justice.

The court also awarded costs of N1,000,000 against Busola Dakolo and held that he should have fined her ten times more because the court’s time was wasted.
