This comes about two weeks after Mrs Dakolo had demanded that the pastor apologises for allegedly defiling her.

In a writ filed on her behalf by her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and Co of Law corridor, she demanded that Pastor Fatoyinbo pens a clearly worded apology on the front page of at least two national newspapers and two national television stations for seven days running consecutively.

She also demanded that the COZA pastor addresses a ‘personal apology letter’ showing honest remorse for his misdeed.

In the suit obtained by Channels Television, Mrs Dakolo told a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja that the defilement by Pastor Fatoyinbo has adversely affected her marital sex life.

Mrs Dakolo also demanded that a cost of action estimated at the sum of N10,000,000 (ten million naira) be paid.

According to her, these actions “both jointly and/or severally are outrageous and reckless and have caused her emotional distress” amounting to intentional infliction of emotional distress on her.
