The Chairman Of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) and former house of Rep member, Abike Dabiri Arewa has taken to her Twitter handle to react to the recent child molestation, sexual assault and harassment allegations levelled against the veteran Yoruba Nollywood actor Olanrewaju Omiyinka James popularly known as Baba Ijesha.
The story of Baba Ijesha getting arrested and currently detained at the Lagos State Police command Panti has been the biggest thing online both traditional and new media.
This led the Former House of Rep member to take to her Twitter handle to react to the ongoing issue, as she posted on her page yesterday Thursday, April 29, that Baba Ijesha is so despicable for committing such a heinous act. Abike Dabiri further went on to dismiss the plea for mercy and forgiveness by Baba Ijesha made to the teenage girl’s god-mother famous comedienne Princess while also confessing to having committed the act.
“So despicable! The act by Yoruba actor, Baba Ijesha, who defied a girl, at 7 years and later at 14 years! Who knows how many the pedophile could have damaged if he wasn’t caught,” Dabiri wrote.
I sponsored the violence against person’s law. The penalty is nothing less than 14 years in prison. His plea, begging on some video I watched should not be acceptable.
We should all do all we can to support the girl’s foster mother, Princess, to ensure this case goes to court and fully tried, and maximum sentence passed on him” she wrote
