Iyabo Ojo Slams Yomi Fabiyi Over Stance On Baba Ijebu’s ‘Rape Saga’

by Adeoya Femi

Iyabo Ojo, Nollywood actress, has slammed Yomi Fabiyi over the comments he made on social media with respect to the alleged defilement of a minor by Baba Ijesha, their colleague.

NAIJASHOWBIZ had reported how the 43-year-old actor, whose real name is Olarenwaju James, was arrested for allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl.

The drama between the Yoruba movie stars started when Fabiyi took to his Instagram page to call out those already judging Baba Ijesha when the court has not convicted him of the allegation.

He had also called for more precise evidence in the case, citing the instance of Baba Suwe, another movie star, who was detained in 2011 for allegedly being in possession of hard drugs but later released.

“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,” he had written.

“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.”

In a follow-up post, he had also reiterated his earlier stance, noting that he remained unperturbed by the criticisms.

“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,” he had added.

“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 the 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 harassment, say no to child abuse.”

But in an Instagram video on Wednesday, Ojo tackled Fabiyi over his stance while accusing him of defending their embattled colleague.

She said it was unfortunate that Fabiyi as well as Foluke Daramola, another film star, would request more evidence to further substantiate the allegation.

Ojo recounted the pains she battled when she had a similar experience when she was eight-year-old, noting that such is not something anyone should attempt to defend.

She said she has seen the said CCT footage of the alleged defilement by Baba Ijesha, adding that anyone who sees such would never defend him.

“Yomi Fabiyi I wouldn’t go back and forth with you. Are you mad ni? You want to use me to catch cruise because I disagreed with you you said I’m shading you,” Iyabo Ojo said in the video.
