Abike Dabiri, the chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), has stated that popular actor Baba Ijesha, who has been in the News lately for molesting a teenage girl, will spend at least 14 years in jail.
In a tweet on Thursday, Dabiri pointed out that the case would earn him no less than 14 years imprisonment.
“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 tweeted
TGtrends Media recalls that Iyabo Ojo and Comedian Princess, the victim’s foster mother, had earlier protested the alleged plan to release Baba Ijesha from police custody on Friday.
In his confession, the suspect had said: “Please, I don’t really know what happened to me but I’m begging you. What’s is happening to me is more than being drunk. Please forgive me. I’m sorry, I won’t do it again.”
