The Federal High Court, sitting in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja has ordered Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, and Mrs Busola Dakolo to appear before it within 14 days.
This is reportedly in connection to Mrs Dakolo’s allegation that the pastor had raped her some years ago.
This is coming after she approached a high court in Abuja, demanding an apology letter from the pastor as she said the the rapper had affected her sex knife with her husband.
In a suit filed on her behalf by her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and Co in Abuja, the photographer and mother of three said the resultant effect of the rape affected her marriage.
“The claimant avers that the defendant in the process used his hand to cover her mouth, thereby muffling her screams. The claimant avers that the defendant made efforts to penetrate her vagina, whilst she struggled to fight him off; however, the defendant overpowered her and penetrated her vagina and had sexual intercourse with her.
“The claimant avers that while she was in shock of the incident which had rendered her befuddled and mortified, the defendant rushed out of the living room area of her family home and briefly returned with a bottle of soda (Krest) which he forced down her throat thereby making her breathing difficult.”
“The defendant further proceeded to threaten the claimant’s life by telling her he would greatly harm her if she ever revealed the incident to anyone. The claimant avers that following her second ordeal with the defendant, she became dejected, kept to herself and hated herself, developed utter loathing for everything around her and withdrew to herself and away from all spiritual activities of the church,” it read.
Busola Dakolo also stated in the suit that the rape incident has caused her continuous emotional and psychological distress, which has not ceased.
“The claimant avers that despite getting married, she continues to live in constant fear, suffers several series of mood swings, emotional and psychological distress, and also worries about her safety. The claimant avers that her marital sex life has been affected negatively as a result of her terrible experience with the defendant, thereby resulting in her continuous emotional and psychological distress, which has not ceased,” it read.
