A High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed the case filed by celebrity photographer, Busola Dakolo against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).
The court on Thursday fined Busola, wife of music star, Timi Dakolo the sum of one million Naira, adding that the fine should have been 10 times more for wasting the court’s time.
Justice Othman A. Musa ruled that 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 than obtaining justice.
Recall that Dakolo in a suit filed on her behalf by her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and Co of Law corridor, claimed that Fatoyinbo raped her when she was 16 years in Ilorin, Kwara State.
“The claimant avers that she was immediately terrified and in shock while the defendant pinned her down on the couch following which he caressed her body, fondled her breasts, pulled her pant, quickly half-pulled his trousers and ordered her to allow him have his way with her.
“The claimant avers that the defendant in the process used his hand to cover her mouth, thereby muffling her screams. The claimant avers that the defendant made efforts to penetrate her vagina, whilst she struggled to fight him off; however, the defendant overpowered her and penetrated her vagina and had sexual intercourse with her.
“The claimant avers that while she was in shock of the incident which had rendered her befuddled and mortified, the defendant rushed out of the living room area of her family home and briefly returned with a bottle of soda (Krest) which he forced down her throat thereby making her breathing difficult,” Olajengbesi said.
