A High Court in Abuja on Thursday, dismissed the rape case filed by Busola Dakolo against the senior pastor of Commonwealth Of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Judge Oathman A. Musa said the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process.
The judge added that the case is empty and purely sentimental.
While some are disappointed in the ruling, others think the verdict is fair.
Celebrities in Nigeria have also been sharing their thoughts on the trending rape case.
Nigerian columnist Betty Irabor wrote on Instagram that, “Why am I not surprised? This is only the beginning. Dear ladies, please don’t get discouraged by this judgement… it’s a temporary set back..Busola, we continue to salute your courage..”.
Presenter Benny Ark also believed that “The court can throw out a valid case and even exonerate a criminal for lack of sufficient evidence…but the conscience knows it’s truths. Wait for it”
