Yomi Fabiyi, a Nollywood actor, has responded to many backlash from Nigerians following his latest film, ‘Oko Iyabo,’ on Baba Ijesha’s rape incident.
Those who have watched the film claim that Yomi Fabiyi altered the story of the rape case to make it appear as though the youngster was having an affair with Baba Ijesha, who is presently on trial for child molestation and sexual assault.
The video, which has become a topic of conversation on social media platforms, has elicited significant condemnation from many Nigerians.
Reacting, Yomi Fabiyi, in a post shared on Instagram, said he had directed the removal of the movie from public space for the sake of peace.
However, the movie is meant to correct child abuse, assault, human right and other vices without any attempt to downplay issues concerning rape or child molestation.
He wrote: I have ask they pull or private the movie for sake of peace. The movie is however to correct child abuse, assault, human rights abuse and other vices to state clearly I am not what they claim I am initially.
Don’t rush on any negative narrative guys, I am human but will never downplay the real issues that concern children. It is just an expression and I respect polite and superior arguments or opinions. Thank you lovelies.
The STORYLINE is good and meant to inject right values, correct ills and educate but social media will always go this route. Thanks for reaching out and expressing yourself on the movie.
Thank you sirs and mas
