Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo has urged the Federal High Court in Abuja to throw out the rape lawsuit filed against him by Busola Dakolo.
Biodun asked for dismissal on grounds of incompetence and also demanded to receive N50m as compensation.
He filed the objection notice before Federal High Court, 14 days after Busola, through her lawyer Pelumi Olajengbesi, went to the same court, asking for an apology on the front page of at least 2 national newspapers and two national television stations consecutively for one week.

We will keep watching to see how this saga ends.
Busola Dakolo is married to Timi Dakolo who is a Nigerian singer. Timi Dakolo emerged winner of the inaugural season of Idols West Africa in 2007. With his victory, he got a recording contract with Sony BMG, in addition to other prizes.
Timi Dakolo was born in Accra, Ghana to a Nigerian father, Bayelsa-native David and a Ghanaian mother, Norah, who died when Dakolo was thirteen years of age. Despite being born in Ghana, Timi has a Nigerian passport and does not claim dual citizenship. Timi’s grandmother Ateni Dakolo and his aunty Susan Larry, who lived in Port Harcourt raised him, and he credits her as his early singing teacher. So deep was their relationship that Timi declined an offer to move to Lagos with his parents, opting to stay back in Port-harcourt with his grandmother.
Timi started singing in church at the age of twelve. In 2003 he joined the singing group Purple Love as a founding member. They dominated the Port Harcourt club circuit, but disbanded in 2005 as all its members had gained admission into the University of Port Harcourt. Around that same period, Timi won a local talent hunt contest G.E FACTO held in Port Harcourt.
Timi Dakolo married Busola Dakolo in 2012. They have three children.
