Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has promised to resist any attempt to free actor Baba Ijesha. The actor was recently nabbed for allegedly abusing the foster daughter of comedienne, Princess, seven years ago.
In a video posted recently, Princess shed more light on how the Baba Ijesha allegedly molested the girl. She said Baba Ijesha was “caught on CCTV attempting to molest her again.”
Actress Iyabo Ojo who has been talking about the case has promised to resist any effort to release the accused actor. In an interview with Punch, a police source disclosed there is an order to release the actor as the courts are presently on strike and keeping him in custody without trial would be an infringement on his fundamental human rights.
Also, the police source added that the CCTV revealed that the victim was not defiled by the actor. According to the source, the case has to do with indecent assault and not sexual harassment, as such, it is open to bail.
While reacting to this development, Iyabo in a video posted on her Instagram page said: ”This live video is for the people in charge of this case. We are going to say no to molestation and yes I stand to use one of my own as a scape goat. If they release Baba Ijesha, we are going to rearrest him and this will no longer be a state thing, it will now become Federal.”
