‘Ministry of Justice is doing nothing’
A veteran Photographer, Busola Dakolo and wife to a music star, Timi Dakolo, has blown out over her rape case with Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, noted that the Ministry of Justice is yet to charge him.
Following the reports of the rape update, Busola said that justice is yet to prevail as the Ministry of Justice is sluggish to charge Pastor Fatoyinbo for the sexual act he committed despite the Police investigation.
Recall that last year, Busola Dakolo broke silence over her rape case, which led many Nigerians to support, while others criticize the story as it ageing.
Vividly, Busola revealed that Pastor Fatoyinbo slept with her without her consent during the teenage period, however, she added that the secret was let out at the appropriate time, regardless of the year’s gap.
In a statement released recently to revisit the case for proper justice, basically as Nigeria is presently experiencing rape plus murder case.
“It is now officially one year after I, Busola Dakolo, came out and told the most important story of my life up until this point. That when I was a teenager, Biodun Fatoyinbo violently raped 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”, she lamented.
Speaking further, she said a lot happened in that time as her heart is glad that consciousness continues to be raised about the great evil that sexual 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 favour of the man who assaulted me, people were crestfallen. I understood.
“Today, I have a major update. The police have 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 get the police report manipulated”, she blows hot.
Busola hammered that justice shall prevail.
“My name is Busola Dakolo, a survivor of one of the most horrific acts, rape. My voice will not be shut down. My case will not be silenced. I am thankful to those in and out of the police, the ministry and 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”, she submitted.
However, she noted that she updated the public because Nigerians all made her story matter.
