Busola Dakolo, on Monday, said she didn't make any money related demands in the suit filed on her behalf at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Dakolo had earlier sued the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, at the FCT High Court after making rape allegations against the pastor.

Counsel to Dakolo and public interest legal advisor, Pelumi Olajengbesi, made the explanation in a statement in Abuja.

According to the statement, the 10 million naira cited by the media was the expense of action carried out by her attorneys.

“Following the misinformation being circulated in print and social media on the pending suit filed by our client, it has become imperative to address and clarify the true state of affairs ...”’ he stated.

“Our client has not sought any monetary damages and/or compensation against Biodun Fatoyinbo in her relief. This is because our client’s reason for filing the civil suit against Biodun Fatoyinbo is, inter alia, for the court to make pronouncements on her rights as well as Biodun’s liabilities and also, to help other victims of sexual, physical and emotional abuse gain the courage to confront their abusers, no matter how highly placed they may be.

“Importantly, the N10m quoted by the media is the cost of the action carried out by her lawyers, to wit, litigation fee.”
