Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has reacted to the rape allegations against Yoruba actor, Baba Ijesha. Tonto vowed to personally get involved in the case and make sure that justice is served.
Olanrewaju James a.k.a Baba Ijesha was arrested by the Lagos state police command for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl right from when she was seven years old.
The police said in a statement that the suspect “confessed to the crime” and was also “captured by a CCTV camera in the house of the complainant”.
Reacting to the incident, Tonto voiced her anger in a series of posts on Instagram. She said the man had not only raped the victim but mothers as a whole. She beckoned on mothers to fight for the girl’s justice.
“This evil man must not be released nor granted bail. They may twerk the law to his favor as a celebrity, what we should all do is repost this and tag foreign and local authorities. He raped us all when he raped her…Mothers come out they have stabbed us “, She wrote.
She said that the fact that he’s a celebrity does not make him any different or above the law. Tonto used her platform to call on women to show solidarity over the matter “We will together as women stand up and use our voice to make awareness of what this man has done”, she said.
Tonto vowed to personally get involved and make sure he never sees the light of the day if these allegations are true.
In her words, “If the allegations are true, I hope he rots in jail and they do the same thing to him when his soap drops. If this is true, I will personally make sure he never sees the light of day.
