Baba Ijesha: ‘Maximum sentence must be passed on actor’ – FG
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has responded to the case of actor, Baba Ijesha defiling a teenager
In the past few days, heated arguments have ensued between entertainers in Nigeria as they expressed divergent views on the matter.
While some appeared sympathetic to Baba Ijesha’s plight, others are drumming support in the fight for justice for the defiled minor.
Dabiri-Erewa described the act by Baba Ijesha as despicable. She demanded support for the victim’s foster mother, Princess, noting that his plea should not be accepted and that maximum sentence must be passed on him.
Meanwhile, the Lagos Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu, on Thursday, while giving update on the matter said the allegation against Baba Ijesha was on sexual and indecent assault which is bailable, and not defilement.
He debunked news that Baba Ijesha would be released soon, adding that he was still being held at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Panti, pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
