Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi has responded to criticism from his fellow celebrities for supporting Baba Ijesha who was accused of defiling a minor.
In an earlier post he made on his Instagram page, Yomi Fabiyi called out some of his colleagues who, according to him, come out to cast aspersions on a fallen man because they believe no one can help them.
The actor went on to say that he does not support evil or crime against women and children, but that he will always use his common sense and conscience in every situation.
He wrote: “Sometimes COMMON SENSE and CAUTION are needed more irrespective of ones personality and principle to serious issues or whatever you know. I am not going to be part of a bad antecedent. If my words come ambiguous, seek understanding before rushing to hurt your colleague online, too low and dirty.
“I will continue to fight for what is right and I will never condone anyone reading negative meaning or isolate my words just to give a dog a bad name and subject to cyber bullying.
“Gbogbo wa ni isowo ogun oh.
“However, we all must be united on the bigger picture and the serious issue at hand. Focus to be hugely on the mental health of the minor and her guardians AND not to twist words or engage in needless drama of distractions. Count me out of social media or industry beef or recklessness
“Fair trial, protection of human rights, and justice is crucial for the public to be on the right path.”
Several celebrities including Toke Makinwa, Iyabo Ojo, Davido condemned Yomi Fabiyi for supporting Baba Ijesha.
Reacting to the backlash from his initial statement, Yomi Fabiyi took to his Instagram page to respond to the death.
He wrote: “Stand by what is right. The hallmark of nobility.”
