Actor Yomi Fabiyi has publicly called out comedian Princess and actress Iyabo Ojo for failing to take action against the individual who admitted to raping Princess’s daughter.
In a social media post, Fabiyi expressed prosecuting Baba Ijesha is a witch hunt because comedian Princess and actress Iyabo Ojo failed to prosecute the close individual to Princes identified as Damola Adekola who confess to the police that he raped Princess 14 years old adopted daughter.
Read his statement below:
RE: BABA IJESHA:
I have waited patiently for a year plus for the right thing to be done by the Police and Lagos Government, I have waited patiently for FAIR TRIAL in this Baba Ijesha case but it is now suggestive that the case is more of witch-hunting and selective justice.
Why are parents, especially sane mothers, moralists, child rights activists silent about the concerns raised during the trial and as expected according to THE LAW? What is going on?
If we focus on the end result which is the video showing Baba Ijesha, the girl and the doctored video evidence showing him begging, we will rush to judgement. WHO REMOVED DAMOLA ADEKOLA whom the victim confessed during Police investigation slept with her, who was arrested and also confessed to the crime? Why is everyone silent and not demanding trial of these other men? Se e whine me ni?
The court, @nigeriapoliceforce @policeng_lagos, lawyers does NOT know the age of the girl, how did they arrive at 14yrs? Even the victim does NOT know her age(writing different ages). Where is the FULL CCTV? The victim confirmed she is aware of the acting and camera. Does Nigerian LAW AND COURT now accept ORGANISED CRIMES as lawful and acceptable?
See, many questions and truth needs to be established in this matter for us to have logical closure, ensure everybody’s right is given and true justice served. 100% truth, if not I won’t backdown.
ASIDE BABA IJESHA already APPEALING the 5yrs sentence of sexual assault, for proper and equal justice, the case needs to be revisited and all criminals in the matter punished accordingly. That is the law o.
