Popular Yoruba Actor, Iyabo Ojo has lambasted Yomi Fabiyi over the comments he made on social media sympathising with Baba Ijesha who has been arrested for allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl.
His post came after police revealed in a statement that Baba Ijesha confessed to the crime and was caught on CCTV. Yoruba actor Yomi Fabiyi released a post asking his colleagues not to jump to conclusions. He went on to demand evidence first.
This did not go down well with so many in the industry. Earlier in the day, Comedienne Princess released a video where, with tears in her eyes, she expressed how sad she felt that Yomi was requesting for the CCTV footage.
According to Princess who is the foster parent of the victim, Baba Ijesha first assaulted the girl sexually when she was 7. Another time, he is said to have penetrated her with a key.
The victim opened up about the incident recently at the age of 14 when a video of Yomi acting with Princess showed on their screen at home.
At this point, Princess said she put up a CCTV camera in the house and alleged it captured Baba Ijesha in the act. She says that when he was confronted, he confessed “4 times” and blamed the devil.
After this video by Princess, Iyabo Ojo took to her Instagram page to address the issue and respond to Yomi Fabiyi. Watch the video below:
Yomi and Iyabo’s posts have generated lots of reactions on Twitter, some are below:
