Comedian Damilola Adekoya, popularly known as Princess, says she was hurt by Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola over the latter’s comment on the arrest of Olanrewaju Omiyinka, alias Baba Ijesha, for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl.
Princess is the guardian of the girl, who is one of six children said to have been left in her care.
Foluke wrote her way into trouble when she endorsed a statement by actor Yomi Fabiyi that video evidence may be needed to prove Baba Ijesha actually assaulted the teenager.
Speaking during an Instagram Live session with actress Iyabo Ojo on Thursday night, Princess wondered how Foluke, a rape survivor, could make such statement.
“How can Foluke Daramola who is a rape survivor even think…?” she was saying before Iyabo cut her off.
Princess added that it does not matter whose child was involver, but nobody should assault a minor.
“I am hurt, I am hurt,” she said in Yoruba.
Foluke in a video released on Wednesday said she did not know that Princess was the one who complained that Baba Ijesha sexually assaulted her foster child.
Restating that she was a rape victim, the 43-year-old said “Baba Ijesha must go down”, but she was concerned about having strong evidence, “not that I will ever support rapists.”
The actress added that she endorsed Yomi’s statement because there was need for wisdom and patience in handling the matter.
Apologising for whatever misconception that may have arisen from her statement, she added that “I am truly sorry. What I stand for is what I stand for. I will never ever support a rapist. I am really sorry.”
