Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has warned her colleagues to desist from defending Baba Ijesha who was accused of sexually assaulting a minor.
The actress took to her social media pages to call out her colleagues, especially those in the Yoruba set of Nollywood, for defending their fellow actor, Baba Ijesha, after he was accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl last week.
She also said that some of the accused’s colleagues seemed to be taking sides with him by asking Nigerians to wait for his side of the story and asking for the CCTV footage as concrete evidence to the dismay of most like Iyabo Ojo.
“For those requesting video proof to back up the allegation that Baba Ijesha actually indulged in the act, the actress speaking as a mother that she is called on them to put themselves in the shoes of the girl and the parents. She asked how they would actually feel if it was their child that was to appear in such a demeaning video”
She also pleaded with the public to cut down the rate at which the news is going viral, owing to the fact that the minor who was allegedly abused by Baba Ijesha is also watching.
