Despite the setback of losing in court, Busola Dakolo is not backing down on her pursuit of justice.

 

It’s being over a year since the mom of three and photographer risked all to bring up r**e allegations against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA

 

According to Busola Dakolo, after a long delay, the police finally concluded investigations and handed the report over the Ministry of Justice to begin the prosecution of Biodin Fatoyinbo.

 

However, she said she’s been met with silence as the Ministry of Justice is stalling on commencing prosecution of Biodun Fatoyinbo.

She says, “Instead, my lawyers and my family have heard about all manner of manipulation and foul play being attempted to stop the ministry from beginning prosecution immediately. Or even to get the police report manipulated.”

It is now officially one year after since I came out and told the most important story of my life up until this point. That when I was a teenager, Biodun Fatoyinbo violently r*ped me. It wasn’t just me. In the media, on social platforms and in private, women have been sharing stories of how this man either destroyed their lives or tried to.”

“A lot has happened in that time: and my heart is glad that consciousness continues to be raised about the great evil that s*xual abuse is, and how widespread it is, and how much women are at risk, and why we need to ensure justice for those who find the strength to speak out.

 

Awareness is victory. But we are pushing to another even great victory: Justice. When the courts last year decided to rule in favor of the man who assaulted me, people were crestfallen. I understood. What they didn’t know however is that before we even began, we had been prepared for a long haul battle that may take years because the Nigerian legal system isn’t wired to help s*xual abuse victims get justice.

Today, I have a major update. The police has concluded its investigation. And handed over its report to the Ministry of Justice in Abuja for onward prosecution of Biodun Fatoyinbo. He clearly has a case to answer. But there has been silence from the ministry. Silence. A loud silence!

We have written a letter but for over a month we have no response.

 

Instead, my lawyers and my family have heard about all manner of manipulation and foul play being attempted to stop the ministry from beginning prosecution immediately. Or even to get the police report manipulated.

 

My name is Busola Dakolo, a survivor of one of the most horrific acts -r*pe. My voice will not be shut down. I am thankful to those in and out of the police, the ministry, and the corridors of power who have called in solidarity and to reassure me that they are monitoring the ministry of justice and that this pressure to bury the case will not succeed. I am updating the Nigerian public because you all made my story matter. You joined me to say enough is enough. With you, this has been an easier process.
