Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has thrown his weight behind his embattled colleague, Baba Ijesha who is currently standing trial for sexual misconduct with a minor – Comedienne Princess’s foster daughter.
He made his view known on his Instagram page where he wrote:
”Part of my concerns and why the law must act unbiased. Fighting for the rights of the child means getting justice against all abuses and assaults done against her innocence and her wish.
Have you ask yourself, what if in the process of the set up there was violence, door locked behind and aside been raped, the girl was killed, will ALL THE ADULTS INVOLVED be let go.
How can the law be BLIND to that and set a horrible antecedent for several innocent children in our society?
Where are the SOCIAL SERVICES in the state, why is the DPP advice silent on all the crimes involved in the entire episodes and all that done against the child, why the silence on all that?”
Baba Ijesha has maintained his innocence despite a viral video which saw him pleading with Princess to be lenient with him. He was initially granted bail but he couldn’t get sureties which ensured he never enjoyed it. He had his first day in court yesterday, Wednesday, June 16.
