Using A Minor As A Trap To Gather Evidence Is A Criminal Offence” – Actor, Yomi Fabiyi (Video)

0

Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi has vehemently stated that just as molesting a minor is a criminal offence, so does it apply to using a minor as a trap to gather evidence for one’s claim.

This is coming after the actor defended Baba Ijesha and requested solid proof to show that he actually molested the 14-year-old girl as he was accused of.

Upon the release of the CCTV footage which has gone viral on the social media space, the actor has dragged both the alleged molester and people who used the minor as a medium to gather proof as defaulters of the law, who ought to face the wrath of the law accordingly.

Sharing the CCTV footage, he wrote:

“IT IS CRIMINAL TO MOLEST A MINOR or USE A MINOR AS A TRAP TO GATHER EVIDENCE.

It is disturbing and unfortunate viewing the images of the released CCTV footage of a minor been s.exually abused by a senior colleague, Mr Lanre Omiyinka a.k.a Baba Ijesha.

There is no excuse for this act. I condemn this act, it is embarrassing and dissapointing.

I have carefully wait for reliable options before jumping into conclusion as done in a civilised society, a stance a handful misconstrued as supporting the suspect, it is a shame a handful in Nigeria still engage in social media recklessness in the name of social media age.

NO WHERE HAVE I SUPPORTED OR CONDONE SUCH, someone just place the idea and many without caution jumped on it. If you are not enlightened, SEEK KNOWLEDGE.

The only person free from arrest and prosecution is the young lady.

Several red lines were crossed, IGNORANCE is never an excuse. The key question every honest person should be asking is,

“if the girl was your child, can you make her go through such truama again in the name of gathering evidence?

Where are the social services and domestic violence unit in Lagos State? Shelve press release and sentiments, swing into action.

The law is sacrosanct and we all can agree a lot more needs to be done TO PROTECT CHILDREN IN NIGERIA.

I am sad, we have failed many innocent children and it is time we rise to this challenge, THE WORLD IS WATCHING.

Every Nigerian who honestly feel for the poor girl should take to the street in a peaceful protest, demand arrest of all connected to this ugly images, it is a cause worth risking everything for, do it for humanity and every innocent child.

However, sentiment should never be an excuse to abuse the rights of every suspect or persons connected, that is the only way to achieve peace, fairness, justice and development.

Thanks to the Lagos Police Commissioner and officers for their meticulous investigation and efforts so far.

A society patient to balance a story seldom get misled or stand with lies.

The media are doing good job too . We want a safer Nigeria for every child.

Thank you

Yomi Fabiyi
Actor/Human Rights Ambassador”

Anyone Who Speaks For Baba Ijesha Needs To Be Arrested – Mercy Johnson Blows Hot

0

Actress Mercy Johnson has blown hot after watching the disturbing video of Baba Ijesha molesting a minor saying anyone who speaks for him needs to be arrested.

Mercy Johnson who has been quiet all this while has angrily reacted after watching to video of which Baba Ijesha was seen molesting a minor even though it was a setup to catch him for doing that when the girl was 7yrs old.

The video which sees Baba Ijesha touching the young girl and kissing him ready to molest the girl has gone viral and after watching it Mercy Johnson has concluded that anyone who speaks for Baba Ijesha needs to be arrested as well.

According to her, as a woman and a mother, it’s inexplicable how one should feel about the video even when some people are defending Baba Ijesha saying comedienne Princess has no right to set him up like that.

Mercy Johnson then prayed to God to protect every kid out there and also give the Nigerian police the conscience to do what is right adding that may God get rid of evil on their path so they don’t get involved in any of these.

While some people think comedienne Princess didn’t do well by setting Baba Ijesha up just to catch him molesting her child, others think he has been doing that for a long time reason why he couldn’t resist the set-up.

Baba Ijesha set for bail as police says no case of defilement

0

Nollywood actor Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, is set to be released on bail according to a police source.

The source revealed that there is no case of defilement against the actor.

Baba Ijesha was arrested for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl for over 7 years, as many celebrities took to social media to slam him.

Comedienne Princess came out to state that her foster child was the girl actor Baba Ijesha sexually assaulted.

Taking to Instagram, the entertainer revealed that after the crash of her marriage, some parents allowed their children, six in number, to come and live with her so she wouldn’t be lonely. She said while she was harbouring the six children, she was also rendering help to Baba Ijesha.

Princess alleged it was during one of his visits that he molested one of three girls living with her.

She said the defilement had an adverse effect on the child as she began to decline academically and otherwise.

Giving an update on the case, a senior officer, the Lagos State Police Command has confirmed to PUNCH Metro that a directive has been issued to release him from police custody within the next 24 hours.

According to PUNCH, this is due to the ongoing strike by members of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, which has made it impossible for the courts to sit, and the suspect could not be detained indefinitely without trial.

The source added an investigation into the recent allegation against Omiyinka revealed that he did not defile the victim, and the victim also confirmed it when questioned.

The senior police officer stated,

“There was no case of defilement, people are just talking out of sentiment. They are not talking from the point of law. We interviewed all parties involved in the case for three hours today (Wednesday).

“The mother complained that her child was at the age of seven when she was defiled and the child pointed at Baba Ijesha. But the case was not reported until she was 14 years and under the law, the case has become statute-barred.

“Regarding this new case, the CCTV footage has been assessed and nowhere was it captured that Baba Ijesha defiled her. The footage only showed him touching the victim’s body but it never showed him having any sexual intercourse with the girl. The girl also confirmed the same thing.

“So, in law, it is a case of indecent assault and not sexual harassment, and it is open to bail. So, can we continue to keep him when the offence is subject to bail and when there is no court sitting? That is against his fundamental human rights and the police do not work on sentiments. Directives have been given out for his release on bail.”

”Stand by what is right” – Yomi Fabiyi reacts to backlash for supporting Baba Ijesha

1

Nigerian actor, Yomi Fabiyi has shared a new post on social media after he was slammed by celebrities for supporting Baba Ijesha who was accused of defiling a minor.

In a post he made on his Instagram page, Yomi Fabiyi called out some of his colleagues who, according to him, come out to cast aspersions on a fallen man because they believe no one can help them.

The actor went on to say that he does not support evil or crime against women and children, but that he will always use his common sense and conscience in every situation.

He wrote:

Sometimes COMMON SENSE and CAUTION are needed more irrespective of ones personality and principle to serious issues or whatever you know. I am not going to be part of a bad antecedent. If my words come ambiguous, seek understanding before rushing to hurt your colleague online, too low and dirty.

I will continue to fight for what is right and I will never condone anyone reading negative meaning or isolate my words just to give a dog a bad name and subject to cyber bullying.

Gbogbo wa ni isowo ogun oh.

However, we all must be united on the bigger picture and the serious issue at hand. Focus to be hugely on the mental health of the minor and her guardians AND not to twist words or engage in needless drama of distractions. Count me out of social media or industry beef or recklessness

Fair trial, protection of human rights, and justice is crucial for the public to be on the right path.

Seek every protection to children and minors around you. SAY NO TO RAPE, SAY NO TO SEXUAL HARRASMENT, SAY NO TO CHILD ABUSE.

Several celebrities including Toke Makinwa, Iyabo Ojo, Davido, and others have come out to condemn him for his stance on the case.

Yomi Fabiyi appears to be unperturbed by the backlash he has received after he called on people not to talk down on his colleague, Baba Ijesha, who has been arrested for molesting a minor.

Yomi appears not to be moved by the backlash, instead he shared a photo on his IG page this night and wrote;

”Stand by what is right. The hallmark of nobility.”

Peter Okoye has revealed that he makes more money now as a solo artist than before when he was part of the now-defunct P-Square.

Peter who now goes by the moniker, Mr. P, said this during a recent interview with HipTV. According to him, he no longer has to split his earnings three ways. He said he enjoys his freedom now.

“Hundred percent, I am. I don’t have to share three ways. Call it greed or selfishness. It’s your own cup of tea. I share with nobody. Yes, my management and my team. Fine. But I’m doing my own thing. I’m freer.

I’m making more money. Freedom is key. I can get a call that there’s a show next week and it’s my daughter’s birthday. I can say, ‘cancel it’. As a group, I couldn’t do that. Moneywise, if I used to share three ways, I share alone.

What am I doing music for? It’s about doing it how I feel it. It’s not even about the money. But when it comes to that, I make more than I was while in the group”he said

Ninalowo, Ibrahim Chatta, Jaiye Kuti And Others Remember Yoruba Actress Aishat Abimbola who died of cancer 3years ago

0

There are a few things that are certain about life, one of these things is that people die daily and the mystery of death is that very few know when and how they will die, many don’t even know what happens afterlife. How long we live isn’t what matters, how we live and the legacy we make for ourselves is the most important.

When people die, unfortunately, the only thing we can do is to remember them and that is what Jaiye Kuti, Aisha Lawal, Bimbo Oshin, Bisola Badmus, Allwell Ademola, Ninalowo Bolanle and many others are doing concerning Aisha Lawal, a colleague who died in 2018.

Actually, it was Ibrahim Chatta who posted a beautiful photo of him with Aisha and captioned it ‘Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilaihi Rajiun’ which means ‘We belong to Allah and to Him shall we return.’

Aisha died at the age of 47 in Canada from complications of breast cancer in May 2018 and I must say that she lived a good life because her death put the industry in a very dark mood, her friend Lola Alao took custody of her two children in Canada, it’s not even the date of her death and people are remembering her for good. She was a very good person.
