Social media followers of ex-Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, have taken an offence at his tweet on the outcome of the suit of Mrs. Busola Dakolo, alleging rape by the Pastor/Founder of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Mrs. Dakolo had alleged that Fatoyinbo raped her in her parents’ house when she was a teenager.
A Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Bwari on Thursday dismissed Mrs. Dakolo’s suit in its judgement and also fined her to pay N1m for wasting the court’s time.
Taking to his verified Twitter handle @realFFK after the judgment on Thursday, Fani-Kayode had tweeted:
Now that @BiodunFatoyinbo of @cozaglobal has been vindicated I say shame on the accuser of the bretheren & all those who mocked and crucified him wirhout seeing ANY hard and credible evidence. Those that make false allegations do great damage to the cause of decency and justice.
Here are some of the reactions as tweeted:
Martins Chika @martinschikaa: Dear Sir, but if you blame the Nigerian courts for giving a false judgement to Buhari against Atiku, why do you now believe they gave a just Judgement in this case? Don’t things seem to be about firm, position & money in 9ja? I don’t like to go into such matters
@terwasemurph: Don’t mind uncle FFK. He wants to be correct at all times.
Olugbenga Oyelakin @Olugben97811194: But Sir, when the Court ruled in favor of Buhari against Atiku, You said Buhari might have won the judgement of this world but not the heaven’s. Are you trusting our Judiciary on this case but not on the presidential election.
alex ogaga @twitlayzie285: He wasn’t vindicated..Let’s not turn facts on its head..D case&its actual substance was never entertained&deliberated upon by D courts..It was knocked out by the ‘Technicality’ termed Statute barred which means D window within which she should have filed a case has since elapsed
IBIAM @official_ibiam: Just like FFK would say of others, Biodun Fatoyinbo may have been “vindicated” by the court of man but certainly not in the court of God.
OMERE EKPENEDE @omere_ekpenede: So because Fatoyinbo won,the court is wonderful, when APC wins you insult the courts,I don’t know if Fatoyinbo is guilty or not,but the court in Nigeria as it is will not clear his name
Uncle P @uncle_pee01: Even you that is a lawyer is misinterpreting a very simple judgment that a 200 level law student would interpret.
De Empress @Chinyereugo_042: Am not with you on this one Sir, because i have lost fate in Nigeria judiciary. Am not supporting anyone here but i believe that no secret remains hidden forever.
