Nollywood Actress, Iyabo Ojo, has plegded that she will not back down from the ongoing case of sexual abuse peddled against Yoruba Actor, Olanrewaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha.

Baba Ijesha has been in custody at the State CID, Panti, for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old-girl in the home of comedienne Adekola Adekanya, popularly called ‘Princess.’ He has however been granted bail on health grounds.

Due to the industrial strike by the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), courts have been shut and cases adjourned.

A lawyer told FIJ that Baba Ijesha’s release on health grounds sounded more like an easy way out. The case had been forwarded by the Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal advice.

In the video that was shared, the actress said ;

I used to think the Government is the problem of Nigeria, but i have just realized that we are our own problem.

The day we begin to take up issues that does not concern us and treat it like it’s our own problem, things will change for the better.

I will stand for that girl to get Justice, I am not backing down, Justice will be served.
