Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi was the laughing stock for many Nigerians when he fulfilled his promise of organising a protest to the popular Lagos based police station, State Criminal Investigative Department in Panti where Baba Ijesha was being detained.

Baba Ijesha had been accused of sexu*lly molesting a minor and Fabiyi decided to protest in demand for his release.

The actor and other people were seen carrying banners and placards as they demanded that Baba Ijesha should be released to them on bail.

He shared the protest video on his Instagram page and insisted that his colleague was detained unjustly, adding that the embattled actor should not be detained unjustly when his offence is bailable.

Nigerians went all out to condemn his acts and bashed him for supporting such a gross act against a child.
