Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing has reacted to the ban of the Theater Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) from the Nollywood industry.
Recall that the leadership of TAMPAN threatened to frustrate Iyabo Ojo and her colleague Nkechi Blessing out of the Nollywood industry, barring its directors from working with the Nollywood stars.
This comes after the actresses consistently via their social media platform condemned the conduct of their colleague, Baba Ijesha, who allegedly defiled the foster daughter of Nigerian comedienne, Princess.
Reacting to the ban, Iyabo Ojo vowed that she would not be silenced regardless of the opposition against her. In her own words, she wrote;
“Silence is golden is why a lot of our girl or boy child gets abused, molested or raped daily and yet they are afraid to speak up.. bcos they’ll be bullied to silent by the same society meant to protect them. Silence aint golden in Nigeria. I can never be silenced know that and know God Periodt.
In the same vein, Nkechi Blessing stated that nobody can deprive her of her shine.
”Nobody can even collect my voice, whoever has gone the extra miles to see you in pains and make you cry. Heavens will go the extra miles to frustrate their efforts ijn. Amen. For as many, that sit and hits their chest that they will frustrate me. God will their entire generation publicly..only if I do not serve God. If i open my mouth talk about this particular man, his grown-up daughters would be ashamed of him.. let me just keep shut and move on like they don’t exit cus hmmmmm”

2020 EndSARS Protest Has Changed My Life, Says DJ Switch
Nigeria disc jockey, Catherine Udeh, popularly known as DJ Switch, has stated that the #EndSARS protest of 2020 changed her life for worse and for better.
The activist took to her verified Instagram page on Wednesday, which marked a year after the protest, to narrate how the movement changed her life.
The DJ gained more prominence last year when she took to her Instagram page to do a live coverage that showed protesters being shot at by personnel of the Nigerian army at the Lekki Toll Gate during the #EndSARS protest that rocked the nation last year.
While most Nigerians praised her for her braveness, the DJ has claimed that she is on the run from the Nigerian government.
Sharing a video of herself on the protest day, she said, “On this day, last year 20.10.20 we were filled with hopes that young Nigerians took a solid stand.
“Through all the government’s antics, lies, counter protesters and thugs that were sent to attack us, we stood our ground!
“When the Nigerian government exhausted all their poorly planned tactics, they unleashed nothing short of evil on its citizens.
“I’ve not been able to talk today and I cannot imagine what others who had it worse, feel!
“I am so proud of our young generation of leaders and our celebrities that have shown great leadership.
“I also must say, it is not a one day affair. This is a fight for the very fabric of our nation!
“My life changed on this day… for worse! But, I also believe it changed for good! I now know what it means to need something so bad and that need for me is a better Nigeria!
“To the youths who risked it all today in order to remember 20.10.20, you are in every bit Superman/Superwoman! Thanks to @davido for an anthem to remember! #endsarsmemorial #endsars #whogavetheorder #neverpostedthisbefore” (sic)

Sexual Assault: “He Removed His Private Part And Told Me To Sit On Him”, Baba Ijesha’s Alleged Victim Narrates Shocking Details
The sexual abuse case against Nollywood actor Olarewaju James, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, continued today and a tape of the victim speaking about the incident was played in court.
During the trial today, October 20, in Lagos, the court played a tape recording of the alleged victim’s interview with child rights advocate Bisi Ajayi Kayode.
In the video played in court, the alleged victim, who is underaged, narrated how Baba Ijesha allegedly assaulted her 7 years ago when she was just 7 years old, and how he tried again recently after she turned 14.
She said that Baba Ijesha visited the house where she was staying with her guardian, comedienne Oluwadamilola Adekoya, better known as Princess, and brought out his penis then asked her to sit on his lap.
She said she was engrossed in the cartoon she was watching on television so she sat on his lap until she felt something wet on her body.
She said in the video played in court: “I didn’t make a sound after seeing his private part. I sat on his laps myself and removed my pant because of my concentration on the cartoon I was watching.”
Using a doll to demonstrate how she sat on Baba Ijesha’s lap, the girl said: “I sat in front of the television trying to watch cartoon.
“Baba Ijesha told me to come and sit on his lap and so I did. Then he removed his private part and told me to sit on him.”
She said she soon felt something wet and then went into the bathroom to clean herself up with a towel. She said Baba Ijesha didn’t say anything afterward.
She claimed that Baba Ijesha returned again the following day and penetrated her with a key.
“He parked his car away from his house and that was where he inserted his car key into my private part while trying to kiss me,” she alleged.
“When he inserted the car key, I felt some type of way.”
The girl then demonstrated how he allegedly penetrated her with the car key.
She said she eventually told her mother about the incident on April 17, 2021, and on April 19, 2021, CCTV was set up to get evidence in order to charge Baba Ijesha to court.
