This video shows the moment disgraced yoruba actor baba ijesha was pleading for mercy after being caught on camera molesting a 14 year old girl.
The video was posted on the Instagram handle of popular Yoruba actress, Iyabo Ojo who have been championing the call for justice since the issue was made public.
Iyabo Ojo and other celebrities earlier today lead a protested against the alleged plan to release Baba Ijesha from police custody.
In the video, Baba Ijesha was seen apologising to popular comedian, Adekola Adekanya, known as Princess, who is the foster mother of the victim.
Ijesha had allegedly defiled Princess’s ward, a 14-year-old girl who was first allegedly defiled by the same man when she was just 7 years old.
Reacting to the video, the chairman, Nigeria in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa described the act as despicable.
She Said, “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 paedophile could have damaged if he wasn’t caught.
“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.
