The ensuing drama between the wife of popular gospel artist Timi Dakolo and the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo has attained another dimension as Busola Dakolo files in court demanding that he apologise for allegedly defiling her.
Mrs Dakolo in a writ filed on her behalf by her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and Co of Law corridor, demanded that Pastor Fatoyinbo pen a clearly worded apology on the front page of at least two national newspapers and two national television stations for seven days running consecutively.
She also demanded that Mr Fatoyinbo address a ‘personal apology letter’ showing honest remorse for his misdeed.
In the suit, Mrs Dakolo told a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja that the defilement by Pastor Fatoyinbo has adversely affected her marital sex life.
Mrs Dakolo also demanded that a cost of action estimated at the sum of N10,000,000 (ten million naira) be paid.
In her suit, Mrs Dakolo reiterated that Pastor Fatoyinbo “forcefully pushed her unto a couch close to the front door of her house, pinned her to the couch, undressed her, caressed her body, fondled her breasts, exposed his genitals to her glare, forcing a bottle of soda (Krest) down her throat thereby making her breathing difficult.”
She further claimed that all the while he was covering her mouth to muffle her screams and threatened her life on the 23rd of September, 2012.
According to her, these actions “both jointly and/or severally are outrageous and reckless and have caused her emotional distress” amounting to intentional infliction of emotional distress on her.
Busola Dakolo, the wife of the musician, Timi Dakolo, had in June accused the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Abiodun Fatoyinbo of defiling her.
