July 06, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi, has refuted claims that his new movie, “Oko Iyabo,” undermines the girl child and makes trivial the sexual abuse of comedienne, Princess’s underaged foster daughter.
THEWILL writes that Fabiyi, in the movie, retold the story of the rape scandal involving the foster daughter of Princess and Baba Ijesha.
Fabiyi, who supported Baba Ijesha, who was alleged to have raped a minor, released clips of the movie on Monday.
The storyline of the new film sparked controversy with many Nigerians and celebrities berating the actor for making fun from a serious situation.
Also, some persons stated that the actor misrepresented the story to make the victim and those calling for justice look bad.
However, in a video posted on his Instagram page on Tuesday, the actor refuted claims that his movie undermines the girl child.
He said: “People are always bringing everything that happens on social media.
“God sees my conscience and he knows no part of my movie undermines or portrays anything bad about the girl child. Don’t let them play things into your head.”
THEWILL writes that the movie has been pulled down from YouTube where it was posted.
