- In tears, the movie star said they had turned Baba Ijesha into a prisoner and he cursed all those who had a hand in it
Just recently, embattled Nollywood actor, Baba Ijesha, appeared in court for his hearing and some members of the industry were present to show him support.
Present at the court was veteran Nollywood actor, Aderemi ‘Olofa Ina’ who revealed that he had travelled all the way from Ede in Osun state to witness the event.
Explaining his understanding of events, the actor said he had heard that Baba Ijesha had reportedly slept with someone. According to him, that was a normal occurrence in their industry and no big actress could claim that she had never slept with someone in their industry.
Speaking further, Olofa Ina said that if Baba Ijesha had offended them separately, they should have spoken to him privately rather than making him a prisoner. In tears, he added that he knew those responsible would not go scot-free.
Olofa Ina said he had never heard of a person taking another to court over having intimate relations. He claimed to have called Iyabo Ojo to lay off the case but she asked him what he would have done if it was his daughter involved.

The actor replied that he told Iyabo it wasn’t her daughter concerned in the matter and he was addressing her as a father figure and wanted her to forget the whole matter so that it would be resolved in-house. However, the actress reportedly dropped the call on him.
