Baba Ijesha: "I should never be made a scapegoat for campaigning for face trial''- Yomi Fabiyi reacts to Lagos state govt's decision to prosecute him over his movie Oko Iyabo



Actor Yomi Fabiyi has reacted to the decision of the Lagos state government to prosecute him over his new movie, Oko Iyabo.



Nigerians who have since the movie claim it depicts the rape scandal involving his colleague, Baba Ijesha, and the foster daughter of comedienne, Princess. It is alleged that Yomi used the names of persons involved in the case for the characters in the movie. Yomi has shown solidarity for Baba Ijesha since he was arrested in April.



In July, the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) announced plans to prosecute Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi, for contempt of court over the production of the movie ‘Oko Iyabo.’ Read here.



In a post shared on his Instagram page, Yomi said he shouldn't be made a scapegoat because he called for a "fair hearing, equity, and justice" in the trial of his colleague, Baba Ijesha. He shared a video clip from the period when Iyabo Ojo and others stormed the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department SCID to protest against the planned release of Baba Ijesha.
