Senior pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC) in London, Matthew Ashimolowo has been listed by Busola Dakolo as part of witnesses in her suit against the senior pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo.  

The Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja in a writ of summons dated September 6 ordered Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo to appear before it within 14 days of the service or judgement may be given in his absence.

“You are hereby commanded that within fourteen (14) days after the service of this writ on you, inclusive of the day of such service you do cause an appearance to be entered for you, in an action of Mrs Busola Dakolo.

And take notice that in default, the claimant may proceed, and judgement may be given in your absence,” the summon read.

Busola Dakolo, a photographer and wife of the musician, Timi Dakolo, had in June accused the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, Pastor Abiodun Fatoyinbo of rape.

Busola, through her lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, wants the court to compel Fatoyinbo to publish a clearly worded apology to Busola on the front page of at least two national newspapers and two national televisions for seven days running consecutively.

She is also asking for N10 million as cost of legal action against Fatoyinbo.

Pastor Ashimolowo, however, on Sunday paid a surprise visit to Fatoyinbo at COZA headquarters in Abuja, becoming the first notable cleric to visit the church after the rape allegation caused a storm.
