A High Court in Bwari, Abuja on Thursday threw out the case filed by Photographer, Busola Dakolo against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).

This came after Fatoyinbo filed an objection and an affidavit at the Court reiterating that Busola’s statements were false and aimed at destroying him.

He argued that from the start, she planned to get the attention of the media and press to tannish his image, even while the Police’s investigation was ongoing.

According to Justice Oathman A. Musa in her judgment, came to the conclusion 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.

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

Dakolo had filed the suit against Fatoyinbo claiming the COZA pastor raped her 20 years ago when she was 16 years in Ilorin, Kwara State, a claim Fatoyinbo still denies never happened.
