Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh has called for the punishment of comedian Baba Ijesha who has been accused of defiling a minor aged 14 for seven years.
Tonto made the call in a series of Instagram posts uploaded on Friday with the hashtag ‘#rapist’.
“If this is true I will personally make sure he never sees the light of day.
”We will together as women stand up together and use our voice to make awareness of what this man has done,” she said.
In another post, she uploaded his picture with the caption, “This is the face of a celebrity rapist. This is the face of evil who pleasured himself with a 7 year old for 7 years.”
Her fans have since responded in torrents, pouring curses on the 48-year-old comedian.
Baba Ijesha born Olanrewaju James was, according to reports, caught by the mother of the victim after she planted a CCTV camera in her house to confirm suspicions of her daughter being sexually assaulted.
The funnyman was arrested after being reported to the police by one Princess Adekola Adekanya on April 19.
