Busola Dakolo has debunked rumors that she demanded N10 million as financial claims from Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo for allegedly raping her.
Dakolo had drawn Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA.
A statement published by Dakolo’s lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, after the false reports being circulated in print and social media on the imminent suit filed by our client, it has become imperative to address and clarify the true state of affairs.
He stated the Nigeria Police Force is still investigating the allegation of rape made by his client against the person of Biodun Fatoyinbo.
“In furtherance of the Police investigation, the suspect (Biodun Fatoyinbo) was confronted by the complainant (our client) on September 5, 2019 at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Area 10, Abuja, during an investigation conference presided over by Deputy Inspector General of Police, Mike Ogbizi.
“The Police therefore has not taken anyone to court.
“However, our client, in furtherance of her civil rights, and in line with constitutional provisions, filed a civil suit against Biodun Fatoyinbo on September 6, 2019. The civil suit is independent of the criminal allegations and/or investigation of the Police.
“The suit has been the subject of several news headlines, albeit with a lot of misleading information. This missive is aimed at clarifying the misinformation and setting the records straight.
“First, our client filed the civil suit against Biodun Fatoyinbo on September 6, 2019 at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, and not the Federal High Court, as widely reported. As at the time of filing the suit, the same was yet to be assigned to a judge for hearing,” he said.
