Panti Police Station, Lagos, had stirred a public outrage after it announced that it will release popular Nigerian actor and comedian, Olanrewaju Omiyinka otherwise known as Baba Ijesha, who was arrested and detained for raping a 14-year-old girl, on bail, claiming that the CCTV footage presented as evidence for the crime did not show him committing the crime.
Less than 24 hours before his planned release, Nigerian actress, Iyabo Ojo – who has been fuming since Olanrewaju’s arrest and has threatened to rearrest him if he is released – posted the video captured immediately after the crime.
The video shows Baba Ijesha confessing to the crime of pedophilia act against the same victim seven years ago. Baba Ijesha had said that it was the devil that prompted him to molest the girl seven years ago but cannot explain what pushed him to rape her this time. He however, pleaded profusely for forgiveness.
