Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has joined several other Nigerians in condemning the new movie of her colleague, Yomi Fabiyi titled ‘Oko Iyabo’.
The screen diva via her instagram page criticized the act of the producers as well as those involved as well as other interested parties to hesitate from being bias in their judgement regarding child molestation.
The movie star described the movie ‘Oko Iyabo’ as one that portrayed a young girl with the mischievious career goal to be a prostitute.
According to the mother of two, it is tragic to see a movie teaching children that it is right to have a relationship with an adult.
The actress also called out Yomi who referred to Baba Ijesha as his friend for using the situation of the actor to project his fame adding that despite being a human right activist, he subjected a minor and girl to more ridicule and abuse.
“Ironically, Yomi call himself a friend and junior colleague to Baba Ijesha yet at every slightest opportunity, you are using his situation to your advantage to project your fame.”
Iyabo however called on the elders in the industry to look into the matter and address the sad issue on the movie which promotes abuse and ridicules the girl child.
“I’m honestly awaiting our elders in the industry to grant another press conference and address the sad issue on a movie that promotes abuse and ridicules a girl child, been gross violation of the fundamental human right to dignity and moreso, against the child rights law of Lagos-state.”
Part of her post reads:
“The events of the past few weeks involving one of our colleagues before the court has drawn lots of reactions from different quarters, however, it is necessary we exercise patience so we don’t fall into the danger of intruding into the sacred issues already instituted.
Yet, civility demand all parties, both those directly involved and other interested parties hesitate from being too emotional or bias about the plague of children molestation ravaging our society.”
