Trouble For Biodun Fatoyinbo As 24 Lawyers And Advocates Volunteer To Take Up Busola Dakolo's Case

The Coalition of Public Interest Lawyers and Advocates (COPA) has said no fewer than 24 public interests lawyers and advocates have volunteered to take up the case of Busola Dakolo against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo at no cost.

Pelumi Olajengbesi, leader of COPA, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, describing the rape allegation as ''grievous and must therefore not be swept under the carpet.''

Olajengbesi said that the decision of the lawyers to take up the matter was due to the fact that similar allegations had been levelled against the pastor in the past.

“We are mindful that such an allegation had, in the past, been levelled against the same individual by a plethora of women, claiming to have had the misfortune of coming in contact with him. Any reasonable individual must deduce that there is in fact a dire concern to be put to rest here by laying the whole truth bare through proactive action.

“The failure of Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, now and in the past, to address these allegations and clear the air on his innocence is not just an arrogant disregard of public sensitivity but a dare to the general public, perhaps, to ‘do its worse’.

The issue of rape and sexual abuse is a contextual one with a great significance in our laws and culture. “It is not just a ruthless crime but a moral impropriety that must be addressed post-haste for the culprit to face justice so the victim might find succour and respite in the sanction of the law.”

he law:

*Hon. Justice Adewale Johnson Banned Open Grazing in Nigeria in 1969*

What most Nigerians do not know is that there is an existing law against open grazing in Nigeria. It is high time states put this law into practice and end unprovoked killings by Fulani herdsmen.

*Hon.Justice Adewale Thompson’s 1969 Judgment on Open Cattle Grazing – Suit no AB/26/66.*
Hon.Justice Adewale Thompson: 17th April, 1969.
Suit no AB/26/66 at Abeokuta Division of the High Court.

“I do not accept the contention of Defendants that a custom exists which imposes an obligation on the owner of farm to fence his farm whilst the owner of cattle allows his cattle to wander like pests and cause damage.  Such a custom if it exists, is unreasonable and I hold that it is repugnant to natural justice, equity and good conscience and therefore unenforceable…in that it is highly unreasonable to impose the burden of fencing a farm on the farmer without the corresponding obligation on the cattle owner to fence in his cattle.” Sequence to that I banned open grazing for it is inimical to peace and tranquility and the cattle owners must fence or ranch their animals for peace to reign in these communities.”

This information should be shared widely so that state governors should be aware of it. It is not known that anybody appealed against this decision, so in law any open grazing is a violation of the law. State governors should setup Task forces that will enforce this law and arrest offenders.

Beautiful, I am glad Nigerians are taking it further, please call all other ladies/girls that she has in one way or the other abused to come forward and tell their stories and help sue Biodun Fatoyinbo. He must not go free. Please, Nigerian judges, make this free and fair, do not base your decision on money or personality, no cover-up. God bless Nigeria, Thanks to all the lawyers, and God bless you.
