The chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has described as despicable, the sexual assault allegations levied against Nollywood actor Olarenwaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha.
Baba Ijesha was arrested some days back for molesting a minor. He reportedly confessed to his crimes.
Dabiri- Erewa in a series of tweets on Thursday said everything should be done to support the girl’s foster mother,and ensure that justice is served.
“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 added.
