As activities unfold following the arrest of Baba Ijesha who was accused of molesting a minor, Actor Yomi Fabiyi on Wednesday led a protest to demand the release of Baba Ijesha.
The protest held at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, had protesters held placards with inscriptions that read, ‘Denial of bail of bailable offence is human rights violation’, ‘Ilegal detention is a human rights violation, don’t support it’. ”Say no to set-up, say no to torture’, ‘Nigeria Police, please allow the law to dictate, not Iyabo Ojo, not Princess and co, please bail Ijesha.”
Yomi said it is a violation of human rights for the police to continue to detain Baba Ijesha without a court trial and further explained that denial of bail for such an offence is evil and that there is no need to change the law. He argued that without the protection of Human Rights, Peace and Development is challenging to achieve.
