Iyabo Ojo blasts actor Yomi Fabiyi, for defending Baba Ijesha, slams Nigerians asking for CCTV evidence (Video)

Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has blasted one of her colleagues in the industry, Yomi Fabiyi for defending Baba Ijesha, following his arrest for allegedly raping a teenage girl.

In a lengthy post on Instagram two days ago, Fabiyi waded in on the alleged rape saga, saying his colleagues should not jump into conclusion on the rape case.

He wrote; “For those asking for my reaction and thinking I am silent because it involves one of us. That is untrue.

First and foremost, we belong to an association and they are investigating the matter in order to get the true picture of event and then act accordingly.

We are careful as individuals not to also comment because from the police statement, a CCTV footage was mentioned, the content not yet made public or seen by the representatives of our association or any close colleague to the best of my knowledge, the suspect has not been heard from directly or his representatives etc.

Lest we forget, many hurriedly condemned Baba Suwe on the drug issue due to the style of reportage, it was alleged he excreted 16wraps when NDLEA has no single pint of evidence from the day one of arrest or picture. We all know what happened after.

For many to cover up for their gaffes, some consoled themselves with narratives that he used jazz, some said he used connection etc. All these cannot help a society like ours. I hate to see innocent masses fight behind half-baked information or charades. The foundation of such society suffers, it raises horrible, uncivilised children and youths.

Except a clear cut open evidence, confession or trial with guilty verdict, it will be malicious and pre-mature for any or as colleagues to draw conclusions. Being famous come with a lot of responsibilities. Please understand and be patient.

Finally, child abuse, rape and sexual harassment are serious case and no artist or sane human being irrespective will condone or support such. However, it is better for majority in a society to be careful than sorry. I still have trust in the quality and honesty of our Detectives and Police Officers and will prosecute whoever is found on the other side of the law.

My prayers and thoughts are with all concerned in this case.”

Iyabo, who herself has been a victim of rape for 5 times,revealed that she would never condone rubbish and would speak out against people who have been defending the actor.

Now reacting to Yomi Fabiyi’s statement, Iyabo Ojo via his comment section called him out for excusing Baba Ijesha’s alleged action.

Not satisfied with the medium of word exchange, Iyabo Ojo in a video shared on her Instagram page lambasted Fabiyi and other Nigerians demanding to see the CCTV evidence that showed Baba Ijesha molesting the teenager.

She then took to her Instagram Live, calling on Fabiyi to join her in order to settle their scores publicly, but he refused to partake in.

The actress stated that she would never support the alleged action of Baba Ijesha, notwithstanding their cordial relationship.
