Actor Yomi Fabiyi has reacted to reportedly being “abused, cursed and tagged” over a forensic expert’s testimony in the rape case involving his colleague, Baba Ijesha and comedienne Princess’ foster daughter rape case.
LIB had reported that the forensic expert laid out details of how the actor allegedly inserted a car key into the vagina of the minor during the last court sitting on Tuesday September 28.
The child forensic expert and the Executive Director of Cece Yara Foundation, Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode said clinical report on the minor showed Baba Ijesha allegedly engaged the child in sexual activities when she was 7 on two occasions, and on one occasion inserted his car key into her vagina.
Reacting to this, Fabiyi stated that nothing said by the forensic expert is new. He also stressed that Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode “never said she has or did forensic evidence like: finger print, test, doctor’s report etc to corroborate what happened seven years ago or indict or link the suspect.”
According to the actor, she only interviewed the victim and as a forensic expert that is “forensic interview”.
Maintaining that he will never regret standing and fighting for what is right, he urged his followers to educate themselves on court proceedings and stop hurling abuses or attack.
I still don’t understand why people are abusing, cursing and tagging me on forensic expert witness.
Nothing said by the forensic expert that has not been said before guys. Please kindly allow the court do their work.
While I respect the expertise of the witness from the NGO, please don’t quote her out of context or engage in social media trial. Nigerians deserve better.
She was invited by the prosecution as witness. Please get what she said in court yesterday clearly, she never said she has or did forensic evidence like: finger print, test, doctor’s report etc to CORROBORATE what happened seven years ago or indict or link the suspect. She ONLY said she interviewed the victim and as forensic expert that is “forensic interview”.
Educate yourself on court proceedings guys. Moreso, this witness(forensic expert) has not even been cross examined. Let the court do their work and stop hurling abuses or attack. Rape, Molestation, Child Abuse of any form etc are serious crimes and justice must be served if anyone is found wanting. It is the law. I will never support any of these crimes. LEARN TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.
I will never REGRET standing, fighting for what is right, Human Rights and FAIR TRIAL. It is crucial to peace, development and justice in any society.
Please let us wait for completion of trial and judge’s verdict before taking definite positions. Trust in the judiciary. Justice for all. Thank you.
