The Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, has reacted to Thursday court ruling.
Naija News reports that the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, sitting at Bwari, had dismissed the sexual assault case filed by Busola Dakolo against Pastor Fatoyinbo.
The COZA pastor’s legal team had in an objection filed at the court restated that Busola’s claims were false and concocted.
Delivering judgement on Thursday, Justice Oathman A. Musa, held that the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process.
Justice Musa held that the case was purely sentimental and empty.
The court awarded costs of N1,000,000 against Busola Dakolo and held that the fine should have been 10 times more but resisted because there are women with legitimate claims.
Reacting to the ruling, Pastor Fatoyinbo, through his Senior Executive Assistant, Pastor Ademola Adetuberu, dedicated the victory to the Church of Christ and the gospel.
Pastor Ademola said, “The victory is of the Lord. We dedicate it to those who stand by us. The victory belongs to God not to me or COZA. We will not share in His glory. The enemies are after the Church and not after me per se.
“They only used me as a scapegoat to launch the attacks. We know that faithful is He who has called us.
“I salute the courage and the support of my beautiful and godly wife, my lovely children, members of COZA family and those who stand by us.
“May God be praised in your life. I bear no grudge against those who were used by the adversary of the Church but instead, I pray for them that we should come together to fight the common enemies of the Church.
“My soul goes to men who are wrongly accused and women who are or have been abused. May God heal the wounds of everyone of us in Jesus Name.”
