The Senior Pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo has urged the court to dismiss the suit that accused him of raping Busola, wife of gospel artist, Timi Dakolo.
The pastor in the preliminary objection he filed against Busola’s suit on Friday, September 20, 2019, asked the High Court in Abuja to dismiss the suit, saying the prayers in it are not “grantable.”
According to Punch, Fatoyinbo also asked the court to award the cost of N50m against her and her solicitor. The embattled pastor said that the lawsuit against him was statute barred because it was not filed within three years of the occurrence of the event complained about. 
He on that ground asked the court to dismiss the suit, saying it was frivolous and a palpable abuse of court process.
Fatoyinbo’s team of lawyers led by Dr Alex Izinyon (SAN) argued that Busola’s petition against the pastor could not be pursued as her rape allegation and the claim that the pastor caused her emotional distress remained the subject of police investigation.
Fatoyinbo also accused Busola of embarrassing and scandalising him by going first to press about the suit before serving it on him. 
The affidavit filed in support of the suit read in part: “That I am aware that the claimant made an allegation of rape and emotional distress before the Nigeria Police Force against the defendant which is still the subject of investigation.
“That I am also aware that the same claimant also filed this suit claiming psychological and emotional distress inflicted on the claimant by the defendant as a result of the said rape allegation levelled against the defendant.
“That the reliefs sought in this instant suit are not grantable and same incompetent.
It would be recalled that on Friday, June 28, 2019, a series of videos were released on social media which contained an exclusive interview Busola Dakolo granted with YNaija. In that interview, she gave a detailed and explosive account of how she was allegedly raped not once but twice by the popular Abuja based pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo.

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
