Comedienne, Damilola Adekoya popularly called Princess has distanced herself from the release of the CCTV footage showing James Omiyinka, known as Baba Ijesha groping her foster daughter.
Adekoya said through her lawyers on Sunday that she had nothing to do with the publication of the video. The footage has since gone viral on social media and has been republished by hundreds of social media accounts. The viral video was first seen on lindaikeji’s blog which prompted reactions from Nigerians.
Many believe it can hinder the court process in trying the accused as it will amount to a deliberate attempt to set him up. Adekoya’s lawyers Ibilola Subair Law Firm immediately put forward a statement on the issue;
“Our client disclaims any liability or responsibility whatsoever that arises from the publication of the video on the internet or any social media platform showing Olanrewaju James Omiyinka (Baba Ijesha) molesting our client’s foster daughter.”
“Our client did not authorize the release of the CCTV footage by Punch Media or any other person whatsoever.”
