KanyiDaily recalls that Baba Ijesha, a 48-year-old Yoruba actor, was arrested for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl since the past 7 years, who happens to be the foster daughter of Popular comedian, Princess.
A few days ago, Yomi Fabiyi had expressed his disappointment with the Nigeria Police over the continued detention of Baba Ijesha who is bailable under the Nigerian law.
On Wednesday, May 11, the actor led others to protest at Panti Police Station, demanding that Baba Ijesha should be released from detention pending when a court would hear his case.
The protesters carried placards and banners with various inscriptions such as “denial of bail of bailable offence is human rights violation”, “Nigeria police, please allow the law to dictate to you, not Iyabo Ojo, Princess and co”, “Release Baba Ijesha”, and “Nigeria police must respect human rights and honour bail for bailable offence”,
Fabiyi, who has been supportive of Baba Ijesha, described the continuous detention of the embattled actor as “illegal”.
