Nollywood Actor Yomi Fabiyi has taken the lead along with others to protest against the detention of his colleague, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha, who was detained after being accused of molesting a minor.
Fabiyi and other protesters marched from Casino Bus Stop to Panti Police Station during the protest on Wednesday.
The protesters asked that Baba Ijesha be released from detention until his hearing by the court.
The protesters carried placards and banners with various inscriptions on them as ‘Nigeria police, please allow the law to dictate to you, not Iyabo Ojo, Princess and co’, ‘release Baba Ijesha’, ‘denial of bail of bailable offence is human rights violation’, and ‘Nigeria police must respect human rights and honor bail for bailable offence’.
Fabiyi, who has shown support for Baba Ijesha, said the continuous detention of Baba Ijesha is illegal.
