About 1,200 Nigerians have signed a petition making rounds on social media to forestall the release of popular Yoruba actor, Olarewaju Omiyinka, after allegedly defiling a minor. For now, the target is for the signees to reach 1,500.

The actor, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, was arrested last week, after he was reported by the teenager’s foster mother ― a comedienne, Princess ― that he molested the girl when she was seven years old.

When the actor was apprehended last Tuesday, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Muyiwa Adejobi, said there was substantial evidence against the actor as he was caught in the act on Closed Circuit Television.

The PPRO further stated that “Based on preliminary findings, the suspect started sexually assaulting the victim since she was seven years old. The suspect confessed to the crime and was also captured by a CCTV camera in the house of the complainant.”

However, in a twist of events, a senior police officer told The PUNCH that the actor may be released on Friday. The source said due to the ongoing strike by members of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, courts had ceased sitting and the suspect could not be detained indefinitely without trial.

The source also said investigation into the recent allegation against Omiyinka revealed that he did not defile the victim, adding that when she was questioned, the victim confirmed the same.

The petition, which is drafted by the Aunt Landa’s Bethel Foundation, on behalf of the teenager’s foster mother, Princess, has urged 1,500 Nigerians to sign against the release of the Yoruba actor, Baba Ijesha.

Dr Yolanda N George-David, who signed the petition, said it is embarrassing to know the Nigeria Police Force is trying to grant the actor bail.

“We seek full justice for the young child. It is embarrassing to know Nigeria Police Force is trying to grant Olanrewaju James Omiyinka bail today at Panti Police station, Lagos state, Nigeria.

“I want to remind the Nigeria Police Force that Section 218 of the Criminal Code Act provides that any person who has unlawful carnal knowledge of a girl under the age of thirteen is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for life with or without caning. This law should be excise and thorough investigation is required with evidence already been submitted by the child guidance,” she wrote.

Narrating the incident that transpired between Baba Ijesha and her foster daughter, Princess said people, who were compassionate about her childlessness, entrusted the victim and five other children to her care, adding that after Omiyinka allegedly defiled the minor, she started behaving strangely.

She stated, “The child started failing in school, I paid for private lessons and when I told my family, they told me we should pray, maybe it is spiritual. But I kept on saying that something is wrong, this child has changed.

“My friend talked to the child again to know what was going on, she told us what happened, I was shocked… I called the CCTV company to set a camera, we asked everybody to go out and stay in a neighbour’s house, she (the victim) was afraid, we said she should calm down…

"He came in and saw that there was nobody at home and I told him I want to see dstv people off and I will stay long…I dropped my phone, went out and locked the door. Two seconds later, he stood up, begin to check my whole house to be sure that none of the children were inside sleeping.

“I can’t begin to relay the things that he did, I was shaking because we were monitoring it on the phone. Police came immediately and picked him up, I asked him, Lanre, what is my offense? You know I didn’t give birth and the children were in my care so I won’t be thinking and you did something like this to me? He said it is the devil…”

How about the law against keeping anyone beyond 48hrs without trial?

Being on bail does not mean he's innocent

He'll have his day in court. Let's be careful how we interprete the law differently for different people

They should start raping the children of Politicians and security agents so that they'll know how painful it is for your daughter to be raped.

The evidence provided is enough to jail the idiot

People have no idea of how the law operates, but are always sentimental about everything

IF I claim someone slapped me, when no one was there, I need to prove my case empirically before the other person can be charged for assault or battery.

Donald Trump claimed endlessly that the US 2020 election was rigged. He went to several courts in several states. All the judges, including the one he appointed struck out his cases for lacking merit

We need to understand certain things about this case.

1. Baba Ijesha was not caught in the act of Rape as seen in the video
2. He was seen molesting or inappropriately touching a minor, which on its own is an offense
3. We heard princess saying she raped her 7 years ago
4. All Princess needs to do is to provide evidence and Doctor's reporting to scientifically prove he raped her at age 7
5. The law is clear and not based on sentiment
6. Baba Ijesha may have raped her, but we need to scientifically prove it, otherwise the police can charge him for another offence outside rape
7. Derick Chauvin was sentenced in George Floyd's case for 2 reasons. He was seen in a video, kneeling on George, then after George died, autopsy showed that because of the kneeling, George couldn't breathe and Oxygen didn't flow into his heart, then died. If George had died of other causes, officer Derick may have been charged differently


All princess needed to do then was to immediately report to the police 7 years ago, send the lady to the hospital and tests conducted.

The case is not the words of Baba Ijesha and the young lady, with no single witness or video of 7 years ago.

2021 video only shows inappropriate behavior and not rape
