Iyabo Ojo has vowed to resist any attempt to release Baba Ijesha, after his arrest for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl since she was 7 years of age.
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.
Reacting to this development, Iyabo in a video posted on her Instagram page, said;
”This live video is for the people in charge of this case. We are going to say no to molestation and yes I stand to use one of my own as a scape goat. If they release Baba Ijesha, we are going to rearrest him and this will no longer be a state thing, it will now become Federal.”
