As different controversies continue to trail the alleged rape case of Nollywood actor Baba Ijesha, Iyabo Ojo has issued a stern warning to her colleagues in the Yoruba movie industry.
Earlier, Yomi Fabiyi had warned his colleagues against condemning Baba Ijesha as he refers to the case of Baba Suwe, who was arrested for having illegal drugs in his possession and was later found not guilty of the crime.
Also reacting, Biodun Okeowo, popularly known as Omoborty, expressed her displeasure over the case and demanded CCTV footage of the ugly incident.
Amidst all these, Iyabo Ojo, in a video shared on his Instagram page, averred that nobody should defend Baba Ijesha without having a clear understanding of the case as rape is a sensitive issue.
The actress, who stressed that there’s no excuse for rape, said those defending the actor by claiming he was framed up to get him a lawyer if they think he is innocent.
To those demanding the release of the CCTV footage, Iyabo Ojo questioned that as a mother, how would they feel when a video of their child being molested is circulating the social media.
The actress added that Baba Ijesha should not be defended but allowed to face the full wrath of the law if found guilty of the crime.
Iyabo Ojo captioned the video: please let’s be mindful in my industry. this is a very sensitive issue & we should all remember that a 14years old child is involved……. she is watching the Internet, if you can’t support or help her don’t hurt her the more…. Thank You
