Rape Allegation: Adesuwa Onyenokwe speaks on court judgement, says Busola is a hero
Talk show host and publisher of Todays Woman lifestyle magazine, Adesuwa Onyenokwe, has reacted to the court judgment, delivered last week, on the Busola Vs Biodun Fatoyinbo rape allegation case.
Recall that a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Court 12, sitting at Bwari, Abuja, last week, dismissed the case filed by Busola Dakolo against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA). The court 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.
In her reaction to the judgment, Adesuwa in a post on her Instagram page stated that though she had hoped for victory for Busola, she was however not taken by surprise with the outcome. She, however, described the present situation as “a temporary setback,” adding that whatever course of action the family takes, Busola remains a hero for putting herself in the front line.
“For the record… When I created the video “The People And The Pulpit” in conjunction with #Ynaija, my summary was that the #notinmychurch campaign and @BusolaDakolo …#BiodunFatoyinbo case could only be fought and won in the court of public opinion.
“The judgment last week didn’t take me by surprise even though I hoped otherwise. Miracles do happen… Though I didn’t jump in the fray of those calling for the judge’s scalp, I still stand by Busola because she has unleashed the Dragon.
“Victory for Busola will be complete when the abused speak up, regardless. This is only a temporary setback. Busola Dakolo knows the truth. Biodun Fatoyinbo knows the truth. Sadly the court works on verifiable facts not necessarily on truth. But as a Christian, I know that vengeance is the Lord’s and that for me is a consolation.
“Busola had a life before, has a life now, and has a life after. Whatever course of action her family takes, in my opinion, Busola is a hero for putting herself in the front line. . .”
