Baba Ijesha: Abike Dabiri-Erewa reacts, says nothing less than 14 years imprisonment awaits yoruba actor

The chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Arewa has reacted to the sexual assault allegations leveled against Nollywood actor Olarenwaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha.

Baba Ijesha was recently arrested by the Lagos state police command to allegedly molesting a minor who happens to be the foster daughter of popular comedienne, Princess.

In a tweet posted on Thursday, April 29, Dabiri-Erewa attacked the accused actor, dismissing his plea for mercy in a now-viral video where he confessed to the crime.

“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
