Nollywood thespian, Iyabo Ojo has vowed to resist any attempt to release embattled actor, Baba Ijesha who was recently apprehended for allegedly molesting the foster daughter of comedienne, Princess, some years back.
In a video shared on Wednesday, April 28, Princess narrated how the actor allegedly molested the victim. She also revealed that the actor was “caught on CCTV attempting to molest her again.”
Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo who has been quite vocal since the emergence of the case, has vowed to resist any attempt to release the accused actor.
It was earlier reported that a police source in an interview with Punch stated that there is an order to release the actor as the courts are currently on strike and it would be against his fundamental human rights to continue keeping him in custody without trial.
The police source went on to add that the CCTV showed that the actor did not defile the victim — according to the source, it is a case of indecent assault and not sexual harassment, and it is open to bail.
Reacting to this development, Iyabo in a video posted on her IG 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 re-arrest him and this will no longer be a state thing, it will now become Federal.”
