Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has advised Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo to utilize judiciously the N1million that would be paid to him by Timi Dakolo and wife Busola.
“You cannot mock God, I celebrate with PB” she wrote in the comment section of entrepreneur, Wale Aladejana’s page on Instagram.
Rejoicing with Wale, who also attends COZA and had had spats with actress Juliet Ibrahim and many others on the COZA alleged rape case, Tonto Dikeh wrote, “The Money should be used to feed IDPS,”
This came after a Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Bwari on Thursday, dismissed a suit filed by photographer, Busola Dakolo, against the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.
The court also ordered Busola to pay N1m for wasting the court’s time.
“Congrats Baba @biodunfatoyinbo we said it from the beginning. Case has been dismissed and damages of one million naira is to be paid to @biodunfatoyinbo
#ThankYouJesus 🕺🕺🕺🕺” Wale Aladejana wrote on his Instagram handle after the judgment.
Wale, an ardent follower of Fatoyinbo, owns a perfume company and also makes top Nollywood celebrities the brand ambassadors.
Tonto Dikeh, former BBnaija housemate, Cee-C are among his brand ambassadors.
Meanwhile, in a suit, filed by Busola, wife of Musician, Timi Dakolo, in September, she had accused Fatoyinbo of rape, adding that the alleged action of the pastor, as well as his denial in a statement adversely, affected her marital sex life.
She, therefore, demanded “a personal letter of apology” from the cleric to show honest remorse for his misdeeds.
Fatoyinbo’s lawyer, Alex Iziyon (SAN), however, argued that the prayer could not be granted, describing it as a frivolous suit.
In his ruling, Justice Oathman Musa held that the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process adding that the case is empty and purely sentimental. Justice Musa said that the case was aimed more at cruelty than obtaining justice.
The court also awarded costs of N1m against Busola Dakolo and held that the fine should have been 10 times more because the court’s time was wasted.
In her suit, which was filed on her behalf by her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and Co of Law corridor, Mrs Dakolo asked the court to declare that Fatoyinbo’s denial of his alleged acts contained jointly and/or severally through a press statement he released on June 28, 2019, had caused her continuous emotional distress and amounted to intentional infliction of emotional distress on her.
