Yomi Fabiyi threatens protest over ‘illegal’ detention of Baba Ijesha
Popular Nollywood Actor Yomi Fabiyi has threatened to mobilise protest over what he called illegal detention of Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha, who was accused of molesting a 14-year-old year girl.
He gave the police before Wednesday, May 12th, 2021 to release Baba Ijesha following which he will mobilise Nigerians for a protest.
Fabiyi stated this on his Instagram page, adding that the continuous detention of the actor without trial is a violation of his human rights.
His Instagram post reads: “PEACEFUL PROTEST on Human Rights, Illegal Detention by Police coming up on Wednesday if the Police refuse to do the right thing and grant BABA IJESHA administrative bail which is his fundamental rights.
“Any progressive state and society MUST respect the RIGHTS of others as enshrined under the law.
“If you refuse to be concerned now, remember it could be you. FORCEFUL ARREST, ILLEGAL IMPRISONMENT is a major tool of OPPRESSION and POLICE BRUTALITY. We must protest against this vehemently.
“STAND BY WHAT IS RIGHT. #RELEASEBABAIJESHAONBAIL #SAYNOHUMANRIGHTSVIOLATION.”
