Actor, Yomi Fabiyi has shared his conversation with his embattled colleague, Baba Ijesha, after he visited him in police custody.
It can be recalled that Baba Ijesha was arrested for allegedly defiling the foster daughter of comedian, Princess. However, there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the rape allegation.
In a recent interview with City People, Yomi Fabiyi spilled what Ijesha told him during his visit.
“I went there. I created time and I sought audience to speak with him. They told him. It’s not like we are close. He doesn’t know where I live. I don’t know where he lives. He hasn’t been in my movie before, for close to 18 years that I have been producing. But I must respect the fact that he is a colleague. We have acted together. We have met abroad together. He cared for me and I cared for him. We are one family no matter what anybody says.
I saw him and I was like I want you to tell me in all honesty, did you rape the young girl? because I was having images in my head and I don’t want to believe he is the one.
He told me that Yomi, there was never a time I raped this lady and this lady never said I raped her. Go and ask her. I said the police said you confessed to the crime. What is in the video they are talking about and what crime did you confess to?
He said ‘Yomi, they showed me a CCTV after they bundled me. They came in, started beating me, they started torturing me. Then they showed me CCTV touching the girl”
Yomi also revealed that when he asked Baba Ijesha about what his relationship with Princess was like before the rape allegation, he said they became closer after her marriage crashed.
“I asked him and he said Yomi, I had marital problem the same time she had her own and we became closer. She helped me with admission.
I asked him ‘were you guys having sexual relationship?..He said Yomi we became close.
A police officer was there. I said no problem, that is not my concern because of the way he answered. Whether it has a link with what you are going through, if it is necessary, you will tell the court”
Yomi also claimed that Ijesha told him the 14-year-old girl allegedly confessed that she was raped by someone close to Princess, but not Baba Ijesha.
According to him, Baba Ijesha said;
“Another interesting part is the girl actually confessed to being sexed , not by Baba Ijesha but by someone who is actually closely related to Princess, who is in police custody. Nobody is talking about it.
Quote me! Except the police will lie, that somebody has been arrested because the girl confessed that Baba Ijesha did not sleep with me and that the person that has been exploiting me sexually lives on my street and they are in Panti.
So which justice system will look into the whole scenario and will now be focusing on one.”
