Since the comedian Princess detailed the events that led to the arrest of Baba Ijesha for molesting her foster child 7 years ago, there have been a lot of comments concerning the allegation. She said that Baba Ijesha came to her and asked for support because he was having difficulties and that he defiled the little girl while she was not with her.

According to her, the little girl was unable to focus in class as a result of her encounter with Baba Ijesha, and her academic success was deteriorating, which they couldn’t understand.

When news of Baba Ijesha’s sexual assault case first surfaced, Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo took to her Instagram page to warn her colleagues not to protect him. She said that she has nothing against the accused actor but that she will stand by the facts.

Yomi Fabiyi, on the other hand, spoke on the situation, claiming that some of his colleagues were targeting a fallen man because they believed no one could save him.

She then expressed dissatisfaction with Yomi Fabiyi’s position on the case. The actress said that the actor insisted on posting the video proof of Baba Ijesha in the act.

There has been a lot of comments concerning the allegation, but here’s how Nigerians and celebrities in the Nigerian movie industry on social media are reacting to the news:

Tonto Dikeh 

Nkechi Blessing Sunday

Foluke Daramola

Lepacious Bose

Biodun Sofuyi Okeowo

All the people wanting to see this video of the young girl and Baba Ijesha, you know you're essentially asking to see child porn right?

Sticking a car key or any other object into anyone's vagina without their consent is sexual assault at least.

A 7 year old cannot give consent.

Baba Ijesha needs to face the full wrath of the law.

Yomi Fabiyi needs to be ostracised.

Thank you Princess for standing up.

– He was caught on cam.

– He admitted and confessed to the police.

Yet some insufferable dingbats like yomi fabiyi are making grounds for baba ijesha's reprehensible actions. Again, yomi is a proper bastard.👍🏻

I like how Iyabo Ojo is speaking about this Rapist called Baba Ijesha and Rape apologist Yemi. Because left to that yorubawood, They’ll sweep it under the carpet and still welcome that rapist in their midst.

On this Baba Ijesha matter, Princess & those in the premises when he was caught really tried sha. How we didn't hear that he's also receiving treatment from severe beating still baffles me. In "saner climes", he would have seen crazy before the police arrived.😒😡

Princess didn’t even need to make the crying video. Valid judgements are made in court, not on Twitter. You don’t need to convince Twitter but the court. The CCTV footage belongs to the court. Twitter people just want to see Baba Ijesha nyash and child porn. Hediots

I don’t like how this rape case against babe ijesha is turning to battle of who has mouth pass on social-media.

What I personally would really love to see is seeing baba ijesha in jail for the crime he committed.

Rape topic is sensitive 🥺 more healings to all survivors 🙏🏾❤️

Baba Ijesha started molesting the girl since she was 7 and it went on and on for 7 good years😭😩🥺

Dear God in heaven, Let him rot in jail

The 14 year old girl is already traumatized💔 They said they noticed when she watched a movie and saw Baba Ijesha in the movie she was erractic and unsteady, just imagine! This man molested her for 7 years!
I hope they give her immediate psychological care and help, she needs it.

It took the little girl seven years before she could open up, all these while her Education and behaviour took a toll…….God! I pray she get the necessary help, I pray for total healing
Baba ijesha and his apologist will know no peace
