The chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Arewa has talked about the sexual assault allegations put up against Nollywood actor Olarenwaju James, also known as Baba Ijesha.
Baba Ijesha was recently apprehended by the Lagos state police command for allegedly molesting a young girl.
In a recent tweet, Dabiri-Erewa slammed the accused actor and rubbished his plea for mercy in a viral video where he confessed to have perpetrated the crime.
While reacting, she tweeted: “So despicable! The act by Yoruba actor, Baba Ijesha, who defied a girl, at 7 years and later at 14 years! Who knows how many the pedophile could have damaged if he wasn’t caught.
“I sponsored the violence against person’s law. The penalty is nothing less than 14 years in prison. His plea, begging on some video I watched should not be acceptable.
“We should all do all we can to support the girl’s foster mother, Princess, to ensure this case goes to court and fully tried, and maximum sentence passed on him.”
