Fatoyinbo breaks silence as Court dismisses Busola’s suit against him

Biodun Fatoyinbo, the head pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), has reacted to his victory at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Okay.ng reports that the court struck out a suit filed by Busola Dakolo, the wife of Timi Dakolo, against Fatoyinbo for allegedly raping her in 2002.

The court also awarded costs of N1,000,000 against Dakolo and held that the fine should have been 10 times more because the court’s time was wasted.

Fatoyinbo, reacting to the ruling through his Executive Senior Assistant, Ademola Adetuberu, in a statement on Thursday, dedicated the victory to God.

He said, “The victory is of the Lord. We dedicate it to those who stand by us. The victory belongs to God not to me or COZA. We will not share in His glory. The enemies are after the Church and not after me per se.

“They only used me as a scapegoat to launch the attacks. We know that faithful is He who has called us.

“I salute the courage and the support of my beautiful and godly wife, my lovely children, members of COZA family and those who stand by us.

“May God be praised in your life. I bear no grudge against those who were used by the adversary of the Church but instead, I pray for them that we should come together to fight the common enemies of the Church.

“My soul goes to men who are wrongly accused and women who are or have been abused. May God heal the wounds of everyone of us in Jesus Name.”

However, Busola through her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, said she will file an appeal against the Federal High Court ruling.
