Says actors should refrain from defending their colleague. 

 

The highly revered international a cultural icon, The Erelu Oodua of Aye Kingdom, Founder of Erelu Oodua Mabel Tinuade  Initiative Against Gender Inequality & Sexual Abuse, Erelu Oodua Tinuade Mabel Onaneye has called for proper punishment for culprit if found guilty while also warning actors to refrain from defending their erring colleague.

 

She made the declaration on Monday, 3rd of May 2021 from her base in Texas, United States through a press release she signed and made available to the general public in relation to the ongoing rape scandal between a well-known Yoruba actor, Mr Olanrewaju Omiyinka popularly known as Baba Ijesha and a 14-year-old minor who was said to be living with another actress cum comedian, Damilola Adekoya popularly known as Princess as at the time of the incidence.

 

Erelu Tinuade became upset upon reading the prelimunary findings of the Lagos State Police spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, that revealed the suspect allegedly began sexually assaulting the victim since she was 7 years old coupled with the viral video where the actor was assaulting the minor.

 

‘Proper punishment should be meted out to the actor in order to send a strong warning to other child molesters and rapists out there who haven’t been caught yet. I can imagine the pain and emotional trauma the little girl would be going through right now.’ Erelu lamented.

 

She equally issued a stern warning to the likes of Foluke Daramola an actress and self-confessed rape survivor, who endorsed a statement by another actor Yomi Fabiyi (in defense of Baba Ijesha) to desist from taking side and showing  support for fellow actors who committed offenses of that magnitude.

 

In conclusion, Erelu Tinuade enjoins the general public and Nollywood folks not to play politics with the case of the little girl. She says people’s insensitivity would hurt her more than the actual act

Nwoko Attacks Wike Again – Asks Him To Account For Rivers Money

Published

on

A few days after calling for the expulsion of Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike from the PDP,

former Delta Lawmaker and billionaire businessman, Ned Nwoko has accused the fiery governor of squandering the Paris Club refund that accrued to the state and local government areas for self-gratification.

 

Mr Nwoko, who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senatorial candidate for Delta North, stated this in a statement on Tuesday.

 

Mr Nwoko has been engaging the Rivers governor whom he accused of instigating the crisis in the PDP for selfish reasons after failing to win the presidential primary of the party and also failing to secure a slot as a running mate to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate.

 

Mr Nwoko had earlier described Mr Wike as a “nuisance” and called for the expulsion of the governor from the party.

 

Mr Nwoko described Mr Wike as a “failed obscure lawyer,”. He challenged the governor to disclose his source of livelihood outside political office which, according to him, Mr Wike “obtained through rascality and dubious tactics.”

 

“The Rivers state governor squandered the Paris club refund, which accrued to the state, diverted the entitlements that ought to have been paid the local governments, for self gratification. How did he utilise the money? He mismanaged it.

 

“Instead, Wike is gallivanting around the world wasting Rivers State’s money, chasing shadows and in the process 25 innocent kids died in the state hospital because of lack of electricity in the hospital. In a civilised society, Wike should have resigned. Indeed he would be prosecuted for the deaths of these innocent kids. This is unpardonable criminal negligence, yet a power-hungry governor like Wike is busy looking for another political office to continue pillaging public resources while his people suffer.”
