Yomi Fabiyi who confirmed this in a n interview with City People said that he recently paid a visit to embattled the Baba Ijesha who said to him that he never raped the 14-year-old foster daughter of the comedienne.
He said; ”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 said he asked Baba Ijesha what his relationship was with Princess before this rape drama and he said they became close 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 Fabiyi concluded.
