DJ Abass, a UK based Nigerian Entertainment and event organiser voiced out his strong opinion regarding the ongoing Prince Andrew and Virginia Roberts sexual abuse allegation case and the striking similarities to Nigeria’s Busola Dakolo case against the rich and power COZA church founder, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
- DJ Abass pointed out how Prince Andrew and Biodun Fatoyinbo’s sexual abuse allegation cases are similar, both women were underage.
- Virginia Roberts case against The British Prince was struck out from the court as being “immaterial and impertinent” while Busola Dakolo’s case against Fatoyinbo was also thrown out for being ” empty and sentimental”.
- Pointing out the difference in both cases, DJ Abass talked about how people are not asking Virginia Roberts why she took so long to come out with her story, while Nigerians are asking Busola why it took 20 years for her to speak up.
“Strange but I see striking similarities between Prince Andrew / Virginia Roberts & Pastor Fatoyinbo / Busola Dakolo cases. Two powerful men accused of sexual impropriety with minors in cases dating back 18 years and 20 years respectively.
Virginia Roberts: She has claimed in US court papers that she slept with Prince Andrew 18 years ago (When she was aged 17) as part of Jeffrey Epstein’s circle of sex trafficking of minors – and Prince Andrew is denying it never happened. However, the allegations were later struck from court records as being ‘immaterial and impertinent’ … and as Andrew’s connection to Epstein made headlines in recent months, corporate sponsors started to pull their support and distance themselves from the prince’s projects.
Busola Dakolo’s rape allegations date from just over 20 years ago when she was 16 years old. A judge later dismissed the case filed by Busola against Pastor Biodun stating held that the matter amounts to injustice and an abuse of judicial process adding that the case is empty and purely sentimental. The court also awarded costs of N1,000,000 against Busola Dakolo’s counsel and held that the fine should have been 10 times more because the court’s time was wasted. Pastor Fatoyinbo who initially stepped down as head pastor at Coza when the story broke was later re-instated.
The difference in both cases though is no one in the US or UK is asking Virginia Roberts why she waited 18 years to tell her story and after two interviews granted by both parties, the overwhelming slant of believability is leaning more towards the accuser. Many in Nigeria have castigated Busola Dakolo (along with other accuser(s)) of ‘waiting too long’ to come out – and I can’ get my head around that.
