Yoruba actor Yomi Fabiyi has threatened to lead a protest over the continued detention of embattled thespian Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha, who has been accused of molesting 14-year-old minor.
The thespian who took to his Instagram page to issue the threat on Sunday demanded the immediate release of Baba Ijesha from detention before Wednesday, May 12th, 2021 following which he will mobilise Nigerians for a protest.
According to him, the detention of the actor without trial is a violation of his human rights and ‘illegal’.
He wrote thus on Instagram: “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.”
