Abuja High Court Dismisses Busola Dakolo Case Against Pastor Fatoyinbo

…also awards N1million fine against her

An Abuja High Court, Court 12, sitting at Bwari on Thursday dismissed the case filed by Busola Dakolo against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).

The presiding judge, Justice Oathman A. Musa, while delivering his verdict stated that the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process adding 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 Mrs Dakolo’s lawyer, Omega Emmanuel Esq., and held that the fine should have been 10 times more because the court’s time was wasted.

Dakolo filed the suit against Fatoyinbo after alleging that he raped her in 2002 and caused her emotional distress.

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

Fatoyinbo wasn’t in court because he’s not required to appear in person for a civil matter. He was however represented by his lawyers.
