Four of his former dancers accused him of sexual assault on multiple occasions between 2002 and 2006 in DR Congo and France .

They also said that Olomidé held them captive in a villa outside Paris but they escaped one night in June 2006.

His lawyer , Emmanuel Marsigny hailed the ruling as a victory because it means the withdrawal of Olomidé ’s international arrest warrant.
