Baba Ijesha rape case: Iyabo Ojo’s lawyers have written to Yomi Fabiyi to demand a “retraction of defamatory publication” he made against her.
Yomi Fabiyi alongside others stormed Panti police station to protest over the detention of embattled actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha who was accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl.
During the protest, Fabiyi, and other protesters marched from Casino Bus Stop to Panti Police Station on Wednesday.
They demanded that Baba Ijesha should be released from detention pending when a court would hear his case.
Fabiyi, who has been supportive of Baba Ijesha, described the continuous detention of Baba Ijesha as “illegal”.
He had accused actress, Iyabo Ojo, and comedian, Princess, of promising to ‘Kill Baba Ijesha” if he is released on bail after he was detained for allegedly sexually molesting Princess’ foster daughter.
In reaction, Iyabo’s lawyers said Yomi’s statement is “offensive and vexatious” and demanded a retraction, an apology, and payment of damages.
They added that Yomi’s allegation has caused Iyabo Ojo, her family, and business associates “trauma and anxiety”.
