The Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) on Monday said it will prosecute Yoruba actor, Yomi Fabiyi, for contempt of court over production of ‘Oko Iyabo.’
In the movie, Omiyinka Olanrewaju aka Baba Ijesha, who is being tried for allegedly raping a minor, was portrayed as being innocent of the charges against him.
The movie has drawn a backlash from viewers and celebrities while many people have reported it on YouTube. . .
The DPP director and prosecution counsel, Olayinka Adeyemi, said Mr Fabiyi made a movie from the facts of Baba Ijesha’s ongoing alleged rape/child Molestation case using the real names of the defendants and the survivor of the case.
Ms Adeyemi also pleaded with the court to exclude him (Fabiyi) from the court proceeding. He was not present at the court on Monday. The judge, Oluwatoyin Taiwo, responded and said the matter will be investigated.
