The founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Abiodun Fatoyinbo and Mrs. Busola Dakolo, wife of R&B singer, Timi Dakolo, have both been ordered to appear before an Abuja High court sitting in Abuja, within the next 14-days.
The court summons followed a suit filed by Mrs. Dakolo before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in which she claimed that the alleged violation of Fatoyinbo adversely affected her marital sex life.
In the suit filed on her behalf by her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and Co of Law corridor, she also demanded “a personal letter of apology” from the cleric to show honest remorse for his misdeeds.
The court summons also came a week after Fatoyinbo was invited over for questioning by the Nigeria Police Force, over rape allegations leveled against him.
The presence of Fatoyinbo in the custody of the police was confirmed by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba who noted that investigation of the clergy was proof that the police has not swept the matter under the carpet as believed in some quarters.
