Baba Ijesha Was Set Up & That is a Criminal Offence – Yomi Fabiyi Comments On Viral CCTV Footage

Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi has averred that Baba Ijesha was allegedly set up even though he molested the minor, that also makes it a criminal offence.

His statement comes in reaction to the CCTV footage which has gone viral on social media space about the molestation of Nollywood actor Baba Ijesha and a minor. Fabiyi who has frowned at those tagging Baba Ijesha as a rapist arguing that there is no clear proof that he actually committed the act defended him and requested for a reliable proof to back the claims.

Upon sighting the video, Fabiyi said that just as molesting a minor is a criminal offence, it is also wrong to use a minor as a trap to collect evidence for one’s claim.

While reacting to the viral CCTV footage, the actor lashed out the purported molester and people who used the minor as a means to collect evidence. He noted that anyone found guilty should face the full rigors of the law.

Sharing the CCTV footage, he wrote:


It is disturbing and unfortunate viewing the images of the released CCTV footage of a minor been sexually abused by a senior colleague, Mr Lanre Omiyinka a.k.a Baba Ijesha. There is no excuse for this act. I condemn this act, it is embarrassing and dissapointing.

I have carefully wait for reliable options before jumping into conclusion as done in a civilised society, a stance a handful misconstrued as supporting the suspect, it is a shame a handful in Nigeria still engage in social media recklessness in the name of social media age. NO WHERE HAVE I SUPPORTED OR CONDONE SUCH, someone just place the idea and many without caution jumped on it. If you are not enlightened, SEEK KNOWLEDGE.

The only person free from arrest and prosecution is the young lady. Several red lines were crossed, IGNORANCE is never an excuse. The key question every honest person should be asking is, “if the girl was your child, can you make her go through such truama again in the name of gathering evidence? Where are the social services and domestic violence unit in Lagos State? Shelve press release and sentiments, swing into action.

The law is sacrosanct and we all can agree a lot more needs to be done TO PROTECT CHILDREN IN NIGERIA. I am sad, we have failed many innocent children and it is time we rise to this challenge, THE WORLD IS WATCHING. Every Nigerian who honestly feel for the poor girl should take to the street in a peaceful protest, demand arrest of all connected to this ugly images, it is a cause worth risking everything for, do it for humanity and every innocent child.

However, sentiment should never be an excuse to abuse the rights of every suspect or persons connected, that is the only way to achieve peace, fairness, justice and development. Thanks to the Lagos Police Commissioner and officers for their meticulous investigation and efforts so far. A society patient to balance a story seldom get misled or stand with lies. The media are doing good job too . We want a safer Nigeria for every child.

Thank you
