Keep Quiet Or I Will Tell The World Your Son’s True Father – Kemi Olunloyo Slam Busola Dakolo


Something amusingly shocking is about to happen as Kemi Olunloyo fired up at Timi Dakolo and Busola Dakolo.

Controversial Journalist, Kemi Olunloyo is spitting fire again and this time it is not directed to Davido and Chioma but to Timi Dakolo and his wife Busola.


She took to her Instagram page to call out Busola based on an interview she granted to Journalist, Azuka Ogujiuba, publisher of Media Room Hub where she said Busola kept mentioning her name during the interview.

Well, this didn’t go well with Kemi Olunloyo and she didn’t hesitate to call her out while also exposing more shady things about Busola Dakolo and her rape case against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo. She accused her of not being a virgin when she married Timi and that the paternity of her first son with Timi is still questionable.


Recall that last year, Busola accused Pastor Fatoyinbo of raping her as a young girl and this generated a lot of raucous on social media. Some believed her while a lot of people doubted her story saying there were a lot of half-truths in it.

Well, Kemi felt provoked by Busola because she mentioned her name in a recent interview she granted and decided to expose more things about her.

See her rant here:

Busola Dakolo next time you do an interview, keep my name off your mouth. @azukaogujiuba when you called me, you could have told me straight up you were doing a feature on the Dakolos rather than ask me random questions about the case. We are both media professionals and I felt baited. Busola YOU ARE out there secretly begging CAN pastors to facilitate YOUR apology to Fatoyinbo for LYING that he raped you 20 yrs ago when the baby or the car didn’t exist later being allowed to change rape dates on police documents as another Journalist caught you doing courtesy of the Bayelsa top cop in Abuja from Timi’s village. You had no idea that you divided the Christian Association of Nigeria and like the judge in your frivolous lawsuit said; you INJURED a pastor and his congregation. I’m still yet to meet or speak to Pastor Fatoyinbo. Tell the world how I intercepted your sympathy GoFundMe which you would have used to cash in on Nigerians. If I ever ever hear my name in your mouth again, I will SUE YOU FOR N500M and Timi makes 10M per weekend. Don’t try me! You are a liar, cheat and fraud who was blackmailed by your own husband based on the paternity of your oldest son Timi denied when you were working at Zenith HQ. I don’t play around with LCF’s madam photographer giving fake awareness to rape. Your global exposure in foreign newspapers using Nigerian correspondents of those platforms failed. Women like you are a DISGRACE to womanhood. You were clearly standing in front of me exactly 6-7yrs ago Valentine’s 2013 and your husband 2014 when your husband professed to me he married you as a virgin. I have audios and have not posted them because the criminal case hasn’t ended while you are trying to forcefully end it. Disgusting liars.

😠
😠
Keep my name off your interviews or I will EXPOSE YOU MORE IN THAT PATERNITY CASE AND BANK SCANDAL. DON’T STEP ON MY TOES. LET SLEEPING DOGS SLEEP.

Wale Jana writes, says ‘you may not go Scott free sleeping around like others’


Businessman, Wale Jana, who is one of the proteges of controversial clergyman, Biodun Fatoyinbo, shared a post on his Instagram page today Sunday January 5th that caught the attention of some social media users.

He posted the photo above on his page while warning people on identifying the poison in their lives. Making reference to sexual recklessness, Jana pointed out that some people might never get away with sleeping around while some others will.

Read his post and tell us what you think..

I am sharing something very deep this morning and if you get it, you will be able to avoid the pitfalls of life.

What is your poison? Do you know your poison?

God told Adam “eat from everything but the day you eat from this particular tree you will die.” God told Samson “ the day your hair is shaved is the day you will lose your power”. God told Solomon “the day you let your wives turn your heart from Me the Living God is the day your decline begins”

God told Joshua “don’t touch anything in Jericho” but someone did and they lost the next battle!

You have to know your poison! The fact that other people sleep around and get away with it doesn’t mean you will get away with it if you try.

I am surrounded by over 1000 women very hot beautiful women but they are forbidden fruit to me because I know my poison. For some of you it could be dishonoring a particular person. God told Oral Roberts “don’t touch the gold or the glory”
If you don’t know your poison you to need to go back and ask God to tell you what that thing you must not do is, some of you are fighting battles you don’t understand because in your ignorance you have messed with poison!
Don’t start this year without knowing what your poison is and may God open your eyes in Jesus name.
Tag someone who should read this, please share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.

Dr. Joe says COZA isn’t a church.

Dr Joe Abah has said COZA is not a church and he went on to explain what he thinks the religious community is.

Abah, who was the Head of the Bureau for Public Sector Reform from 2013 to 2017, tweeted this following the outcry on Twitter resulting from a video where Davido was seen promoting a COZA program.

Davido responded, revealing he had been hoodwinked and didn’t know what the video was for. Afterwards, the woman who got Davido to do the video admitted that Davido had no idea it was to promote a COZA program.

As Twitter users kept debating the latest issue involving COZA, Dr Joe Abah tweeted: “COZA stands for Commonwealth of Zion Assembly. It’s an assembly, not a church. There’s a difference between the two.”

But Twitter users do not agree.

Below are reactions from Twitter users.

COZA – Fatoyinbo may have won the rape case in the court but he is ruined forever – Former Chairman, NHRC

Nigeria

Chidi Odinkalu, former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission NHRC, has said that the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly COZA, Chidi Odinkalu, might have won in the rape case filed against him by Busola Dakolo at the Abuja High Court but his name is in ruins and he might never be able to clear the rape allegation leveled against him by Mrs Dakolo.

Chidi Odinkalu shared his opinion in a new artilce he wrote titled ”Busola Dakolo: In Praise of Soft Vengeance”. Read the full article below

At the end of June 2019, #MeToo became #ChurchToo in Nigeria.

Busola Dakolo, a mother of three who grew up a gifted child was the unlikely heroine in this script. She first laid bare her claims in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, lawyer and co-founder of the digital platform, YNaija. These claims later became the basis for her civil claim filed at the Abuja High Court on September 6, detailing harrowing allegations of rape perpetrated against her by Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, best known as the senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA). The acts took place on 23 and 26 September 2002.

To be clear, this was not the first time allegations of sexual predation had been made against this pastor. Mrs. Dakolo’s allegations, however, felt different. They were detailed; as a married mother, she had very little to gain from making these allegations public and an awful blowback was both predictable and to be expected from partisans and propagandists of the alleged perpetrator.

The first incident of sexual assault allegedly took place when she was 17 in her parents’ house in Ilorin, Kwara State. Neither parent was at home and the pastor knew this. She had never experienced sexual intimacy before then. She looked up to the pastor as her “Spiritual Father”. The facts would suggest that the alleged perpetrator probably groomed her for this moment. After the sexual act, he reportedly gave her a bottle of “Krest”, a lemonade-flavoured soda and forced her to drink it. There was a second incident which reportedly took place in or on a car. As a young Christian girl from a polygamous home, Busola Amupitan, as she was when these sexual assaults reportedly took place, initially was unable to confide in anyone about these crimes.

Expectedly, these allegations set off a firestorm across Nigeria and beyond. The alleged perpetrator initially issued a statement offering a general denial of the allegations and threatening both civil and criminal proceedings. For the first time, Pastor Fatoyinbo found himself issuing a public response to such allegations. In the past, he had not dignified similar allegations with an acknowledgement. Pastor Fatoyinbo’s threat of criminal proceedings sounded like bluster. He did not have a plausible path to criminal proceedings against her.

In the end, Mrs. Dakolo sued before the civil courts. A mere nine weeks after her case was filed, Justice A.O. Musa, sitting on the outskirts of Abuja in Bwari, delivered a ruling on the outskirts of the jurisprudential season, holding on November 14 that it was statute-barred. Under the applicable laws, he ruled, such cases must be filed not later than 75 months (six years and three months) after the act complained of. Having dismissed Mrs. Dakolo’s action, the judge then added: “…what we are now left with in this suit is sentiment. This suit is soaked in emotions and ferried into this court by the claimant riding on the thick clouds of bourgeoning sentiments”, claiming that it will “occasion grave miscarriage of justice” to ask the pastor to answer to these claims after 16 years.

This ruling raises many questions about the state of both law and procedure concerning sexual assaults in Nigeria, especially, one reported so many years after it happened. As the world marks the International day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, it is important to return to these.

Criminal proceedings, if one were to take place, become a trial, not of the alleged perpetrator, but an ordeal for the victim, in which her intimate life is subjected to humiliating micro-examination for the purpose of granting the perpetrator a free pass.

In principle, there is no limitation on criminal prosecution for rape or sexual violence. The fact that the allegations in this case happened long ago does not preclude an investigation or, if evidence of rape is in fact unearthed, of prosecution. Achieving such an outcome, however, would be dependent on overcoming some constraints of law, evidence and practice.

Let’s begin with the broad regime of laws affecting rape and sexual violence in Nigeria. At present, Nigeria has a multiplicity of sources of laws on rape and sexual violence. There are at least five. In the Federal Capital Territory, the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act (VAPPA) of 2015 has a robust definition of rape as a crime that can be committed by both men and women and involves penetration of any bodily orifice. Nine states – Anambra, Benue, Ebonyi, Edo, Ekiti, Enugu, Kaduna, Osun, and Oyo – seven in the south and only two in the north – have adopted the VAPPA. In nine other states of Southern Nigeria, the Criminal Code applies. Separately, Lagos State enacted a Criminal Law in 2011, which defined rape in terms that both anticipated and resemble the VAPPA. 12 States of Northern Nigeria that have adopted Sharia also recognise a Huddud crime of rape. Additionally, the Penal Code remains applicable in 17 States of the north in relation to the crime of rape.

Both the Criminal and Penal Codes are Victorian pieces of legislation, the gist of whose prescriptions on sexual violence were defined in the last quarter of the 19th century during the reign of Queen Victoria. By the way, she died in 1901. In the terms alleged, the crimes against Mrs. Dakolo took place in Kwara State, where the Penal Code is applicable.

Section 282 of the Penal Code defines the crime of rape as comprising four essential elements:

(a) penetration of female genitals with the male phallus;
(b) the act of penetration achieved without the consent of the woman or the consent – if one is alleged – was obtained by fraud, force, threat, intimidation, deceit or impersonation;
(c) the woman is not the wife of the perpetrator; and
(d) the perpetrator intended to achieve penetration of the woman without her consent or acted recklessly without regard to whether or not she consented.

The two most important of these four elements are the physical act of penetration and the communicative act of lack of consent. Every investigation of rape invariably turns on these, making rape a trial of the body of the woman or victim.

Rape typically occurs outside public view. Overcome invariably by personal feelings of guilt and filth, victims are often too ashamed in the immediate aftermath of the crime to confide in anyone. As a result, rape kits are often not performed until after loss of biological evidence. By the time a rape kit is performed, essential biological evidence would have been lost, making the likelihood of effective investigation or successful prosecution rather low or non-existent. Criminal proceedings, if one were to take place, become a trial, not of the alleged perpetrator, but an ordeal for the victim, in which her intimate life is subjected to humiliating micro-examination for the purpose of granting the perpetrator a free pass. Unsurprisingly, many victims, unwilling to subject themselves to such ordeals, would rather nurse their violations and not report rape.

This is the context for assessing the ruling dismissing Mrs. Dakolo’s civil case. The victim was too young at the time of the alleged incident. The judge, having held the case was statute–barred, went on to venture gratuitous put downs that did not do him a lot of credit. He rendered judgment with neither compassion nor humaneness and was too enthusiastic to lay into the victim. The award of punitive costs against her counsel (in the sum of one million naira) appeared rather uncalled for at best.

…the definition of rape in both the Criminal and Penal Codes is clearly very outdated. It makes the crime near impossible to prove. To achieve this, VAPP Act needs to be taken to all the States and made the standard all over Nigeria. This will make it possible to harmonise the laws of sexual offences across the country…

Whatever the difficulties of proof, cases like Mrs. Dakolo’s remind us of the need to scale up rape law reform in Nigeria. Some basic steps can help.

First, the definition of rape in both the Criminal and Penal Codes is clearly very outdated. It makes the crime near impossible to prove. To achieve this, VAPP Act needs to be taken to all the States and made the standard all over Nigeria. This will make it possible to harmonise the laws of sexual offences across the country, eliminating the confusion that presently exists. The Conference of Attorneys-General in concert with the inspector-general of Police can commit to legislating to make this possible.

Second, at present, the law allows evidence of the sexual or intimate histories of victims from the proceedings but mostly precludes such evidence on the part of alleged perpetrators. This incidence of the laws of evidence in rape proceedings in most jurisdictions in Nigeria can be reversed by amending the relevant laws in all the states other than Lagos where this has already been achieved.

Third, in civil cases alleging the rape of minors – as in persons under the age of 18 – or culpability of persons in authority over the victim (as in a pastor), it should be possible to allow for a doctrine of continuing violation triggering the commencement of computation for limitation purposes from either the attainment of majority or the end of the power relationship between the victim and the perpetrator (whichever is later). If this requires updating legal doctrine or amending the statute of limitation, then it should be done.

Fourth, predictably, propagandists for the alleged perpetrator have gone to town with unfounded claims of his exoneration. That, sadly, is far from what has happened. It is impossible, however, for victims in cases such as this not to feel let down by the system. We must invest in weaning judges through training of a prevailing Victorian mind-set about remedying rape.

Pastor Fatoyinbo may have achieved a technical legal victory but it has left his name in ruins. He may never be able to clear himself of allegations that he is a rapist. That is a terrible burden for a “Man of God” to live with, a testament to the soft vengeance of Busola Dakolo’s incredible courage.

Nigerians reacted as first sexual offenders register is launched in Nigeria, See how Busola Dakolo reacted..

The Nigerian Sexual Offenders Register was launched today, November 25, 2019, and Nigerians have hailed this move as a step in the right direction.

The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) launched the sex offenders register to curb sexual violence in Nigeria. They chose today, which marks the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism Against Violence Against Women, to launch the register.

To clamp down on sexual abuse, NAPTIP set up a database of those convicted for sexual violence. Record will be available online to help the public, agencies & police.

With this register, victims can now report an incident and also go through the names of those convicted. The register has a search feature which enables individuals and organisations to access information on the identity and location of arraigned sexual offenders.

The sexual offender register will contain the names of anyone prosecuted for sexual violence in the country since 2015.

A number of Nigerians took to various social media platforms to react to this.

Busola Dakolo, who accused COZA pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of rape, also reacted writing: “Today, marks the beginning of the 16 days of Activism against Violence Against Women and is also the day when National Sexual Offenders Register is being launched by NAPTIP with the support of the European Union.”

Coza: Family of a lady who Bidoun Fatoyinbo raped to death reached me – Akan Nnani

Akan Nnani, an actor and former member of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly COZA, says a family friend of a lady who died while aborting a pregnancy for embattled COZA Pastor, reached out to him via DM to share the sad story with him.

Akan who announced his exit from the church in July shortly after Busola Dakolo accused Fatoyinbo of rape, took to twitter to recount how the pastor allegedly used money and luxury gifts to shut Pastors up so they could cover up his illicit activities. The Nollywood actor recounted how a popular female clergywoman who was called out a while back for asking for $1000 from church members, came to COZA and told them that God told her that if any of them dares to speak ill about Fatoyinbo, they will suffer.
