Fabiyi claimed to have met Baba Ijesha in custody, and to have also met Princess and the girl for more explanation on the matter. He said, “I’m not a judge but it’s extremely wrong. I’m disappointed in him (Baba Ijesha). That’s not too much for me to say because he caused it.
“Another interesting part is that the girl confessed to having had sex, not with Baba Ijesha but with someone who is close to Princess and he’s in the police custody. Nobody is talking about that.
“You can quote me on this, except the police would lie. Somebody has been arrested because the girl confessed Baba Ijesha didn’t sleep with her. The person that has been sleeping with her lives on their street and he’s been picked up and now in Panti (State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department).

Those who planned that are co-conspirators. Because if you said you wanted to have proof, who ordered it? Who authorised it and before you can actually authorise it, it must be establish that the incident occurred the first time and that’s when we can say let’s find a way to nip him again but you didn’t approach the police.
“If that didn’t happen, it was a setup. And Baba Ijesha stupidly enters the trap but we are all human. Nobody should be set up.”
Fabiyi added, “I have already put up a petition that would go to the Governor, the Speaker of Lagos State, notify them of the things their appointees didn’t pay attention to. It could be an oversight or they got carried away.
“So why should your law be right in this matter when you don’t want to tell the other party you are wrong. That’s partiality. That would not take us anywhere. I already put up a statement saying that what he did wasn’t right and if the whole scenario can send him to jail, that’s the prerogative of the judge.”
It was reported on May 4 that Lagos State government recommended the prosecution of Baba Ijesha under five provisions of Criminal Laws of the state.
In a statement, Moyosore Onigbanjo, Lagos State Attorney-General said Baba Ijesha would be charged under the Criminal Law of Lagos State. One of the charges includes Indecent Treatment of a child, which is punishable by seven years imprisonment.
Another is Defilement of a Child, which is punishable by life imprisonment. Sexual Assault by Penetration is also punishable by life imprisonment. Baba Ijesha is also being charged for Attempted Sexual Assault by Penetration, punishable by 14 years imprisonment, and Sexual Assault, which is punishable by three years imprisonment.
