The real drama is about to begin in the alleged rape scandal involving Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA and Busola, wife Of Iyawo Mi crooner, Timi Dakolo, YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine can inform you.
And here is why – Mrs. Dakolo has finally made good her threat of dragging the Founder and Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, to court over her rape claims. Not only that, she wants Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo of KICC, London as one of her witnesses!
An FCT High Court, in a writ of summons dated September 6 and served on Fatoyinbo, ordered the Pastor to appear before it within 14 days of the service or judgement may be given in his absence.
“You are hereby commanded that within fourteen (14) days after the service of this writ on you, inclusive of the day of such service, you do cause an appearance to be entered for you, in an action of Mrs Busola Dakolo.
“And take notice that in default, the claimant may proceed, and judgement may be given in your absence,” the summon warned.
The court, meanwhile, may subpoena Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo, the Senior Pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), with headquarters in London, as he was listed among the witnesses Busola will be using to establish her case.
Busola, through her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi & Co., is again seeking the order of the court to compel Fatoyinbo to publish a clearly worded apology to her on the front page of at least two (2) National Newspapers and two National Televisions for seven days running consecutively.
Busola, it would be recalled, had months ago shockingly announced to the world that Fatoyinbo violated her sexually. And ever since, her life, her family, Fatoyinbo, his family and his ministry haven’t left the pages of newspapers, magazines and even online platforms.
Different twists and turns have continued to characterize the rape saga, especially with The Nigeria Police, Christian Association of Nigeria, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria and others wading in and also injecting their angles and perspectives.
