Comedienne Damilola Adekoya, popularly known as Princess Comedian, has narrated how fellow comedian Olarenwaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, was caught s.e.xually harassing a 14-year-old girl in her care.
Taking to Instagram, the entertainer revealed that after the crash of her marriage, some parents allowed their children, six in number, to come and live with her so she wouldn’t be lonely. She said while she was harbouring the six children, she was also rendering help to Baba Ijesha..
Princess said Baba Ijesha has confessed four times to the police since he was picked up last week that he abused the girl when she was seven years old and on the day of his arrest.
According to her, the comedian betrayed her trust and years of mentorship by committing the act. She said the defilement had an adverse effect on the child as she began to decline academically and otherwise.
Princess, who does not have a biological child of her own, broke down in tears as she labelled those asking to see video evidence of Baba Ijesha assaulting the girl as wicked.
Describing the pain she feels as “too much”, Princess said people’s insensitivity hurts her more.
She was particularly upset at fellow actress and self-confessed rape survivor Foluke Daramola who endorsed a statement by actor Yomi Fabiyi asking for evidence.
Without mentioning Foluke’s name, Princess asked if there was video evidence when she claimed she was raped years ago.
