Earlier today, a High Court in Bwari, Abuja 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 concocted to embarrass, scandalise and ridicule Fatoyinbo.
He argued that from the inception, she sought the attention of the media and press, and brought the civil action even while the Police’s investigation was ongoing.
The action has since sparked diverse from Nigerians. Some condemned the ruling while some spoke against it.
Here are some reactions as gathered from social media by Kemi Filani News:
One Ayodele on Instagram wrote ” The God of heaven and Earth, the righteous judge has not thrown out the case and very soon, whoever has sworn in vain in the name of the most High God will face judgement. What is hidden to man is opened to God. “
One Kingsley wrote “I hope we find someone with evidence willing to step forward .. its painful hearing this ..but facts was needed”
One Miss Trechy wrote ” Hmmmm, i knew she had no case cos it would be difficult to provide proof of an incidence that happens many years ago cos the court would not listen just verbal proof especially in our justice system”
One Jenny Kishy wrote “Money things, what do u expect, we get law? Mtchew”
One Victor Goke wrote ” In as much as I supported busola, legally she had no case. How does she prove the case was a rape after 17 years? A lawyer friend i discussed with agreed with my position. It is almost impossible for her to win the case. Sympathy aside, where are the evidence? “
And one Adeoye Folake wrote ” Busola,jawo nibe– leave this man for God.Oju e loni,koju Olorun lo.Olorun fun rare lo ma mu. Oshi ma se sibiti ashirie matu si gbogbo aye. Take heart my dear and move on. “
