Comedian Princess Makes Shocking Revelations! Says It Was Her Foster Child That Baba Ijesha Raped 7 Years Ago.
Nigerian comedian, Damilola Adekoya, better known as Princess, has revealed that the victim Nollywood actor, Baba Ijesha, raped at the age of 7 is her foster child; one of the six children given to her by some parents in her area out of compassion.
In a lengthy video, which has now gone viral on the internet, the comedian said:
“Some years ago I had challenges in my marriage and lost a baby. Some parents in my area out of compassion allowed their children to stay with me so that I will not feel lonely. There were six of them 3 boys and 3 girls.
“Baba Ijesha also had issues then and came to me for help. I tried my best and registered him in a lesson and he sat for GCE. I also tried to register him in UNILAG. On that particular day, he came to my house that he needed more help and I was not around. Three of my children are boys; they have a place they always go to play. The two small ones also asked to follow them.
“So my aunty visited me on this same day and Baba Ijesha was around. When My aunty left, I had to go lock the gate. I didn’t know what happened in the place of 3-4 minutes. The following week I was called to my children’s school to come and see them. I was told the boy sat on the girl’s leg and was doing her waist somehow. They called the parents of the children also. Their parents are strictly born again. Normally I don’t allow the children to watch cartoon, the cartoon they watch I always make sure we watch it together.
“The parent said her action may be spiritual and we started praying about it. Baba Ijesha warned her not to tell anybody and he had come the next day to be sure if she told anybody. He told her that he brought food that she should follow him to carry the fruit in the car for everybody. When she got down, he used the key to defile her again and after that day, he didn’t come to my house again.
“But anytime that he needed help, he will call me. So when I saw the news that people are saying that he has been molesting her for seven years. They were saying so many things. I was like Why? Fine, he defiled her, he assaulted her and we just found out. But after that day, he never came to our house again. He was dodging me.
“So when he needed my help. I now call him that you need my help and you stay at home and I’m not feeling fine. My wedding just ended and I don’t have money why should I be the one to be calling you. He said he was sorry. but I noticed that he was avoiding me but I didn’t know why.
“The child started failing at school and I always pay for private lesson. When I told my family they told me we should pray maybe it is spiritual. The parents also said we should pray. They said if the children are with me God could answer my prayer of conceiving.
“I kept on saying that something is wrong, this child has changed. Then my family said that I don’t have faith that I should be praying. Even the parents were fasting and praying. They will go to Redeem, bring water. After 2 years I said this is not spiritual something is wrong. Everybody said I keep insisting; why I’m I doing that?
“So last year all the children are grown now and they were in boarding school. So one of my friend said since I don’t have a child of my own, I should go and adopt a baby as six of the children with me are in a boarding house. So last year January, I said let me go and adopt a baby so I will not be the only one at home. But I was like are we not going to go to the root of this problem. Because of Corona we couldn’t do anything. But this last month, I said let me go and adopt the baby because school is resuming last month. The children will be going back to the boarding house, but maybe I will change her boarding house again because something is wrong.
“My friend came here she was telling me ‘Princess you have been saying the same thing for seven years stop insisting’. But I know something is wrong; however, I never imagined it in my life because for almost 14 years now I have been helping children who have been abused and molested, I housed them, I took care of them, even women who have domestic violence, I help them.
“So why is it me that this kind of thing will happen to. So people should stop saying what they don’t know because he is a popular actor. Is he bigger than God? somebody that came to me for help. I now say let me call him. My friend now talk to the child again that what is going on. She now told us what happened. I was shocked. I now said ok let me call Baba Ijesha. I went to his page, I wrote ‘Baba Ijesha please check your DM’ because I was trying his number and it was not going. I now sent him a message that how far I want to shoot a movie that he should come.
“I and my friend said when he comes we will sit him down and ask him if it is really true. So that day we were waiting for him. when he was on his way, I now remember what my friend had told me. She said we should be careful that people will want to support Baba Ijesha especially if we don’t have evidence. I now called the CCTV company to come that day to set the camera.
“I told them it was a matter of life and death so they set the camera. We ask everybody in the house to go out and stay at the neighbour’s house. She was afraid; we said she should calm down because she did not see him again since 7 years ago until she saw him in the movie we did together 2 years ago. She started doing somehow. Even her brothers were asking her what happened. She couldn’t say anything until she told us.
“So we now put the CCTV, he came in and he saw that there was nobody at home. He asked me who are these people, I told him they are DSTV people; I told him I want to see them off. That when I go now I will stay long that he should relax. I dropped my phone. I said my phone is here then I went out. Locked the door.
“2 seconds he stood up to begin to check my whole house. Checked my children to make sure none of them is sleeping. See how people are wicked? He checked the whole house, wanted to be sure that none of the children is inside sleeping.
“He checked the whole house for camera; then he started. I can’t even begin to narrate the things that he did. I couldn’t take it. I was shaking because we were monitoring the whole thing on the phone. At a point where she stood up to go to the kitchen, I would know that there is no camera in the kitchen.
“People came in they called Police who arrived immediately. I asked Baba Ijesha ‘what did I do to you? You know I don’t have a child. These children were told to live with me so I won’t feel lonely. What did I do?’ He said it is the devil’s work. He said I’m his benefactor; he was just talking rubbish.
“I asked him what happened seven years ago, he was just begging me. So they took him away. Every day we go to the police station from morning to night. Some of you are now saying we should post the video of the child being molested; What do you want to gain?
“Some people were even calling me trying to threaten me. Why? Children are the heritage of God. Nobody deserves to be molested. It’s not fair. I beg you in the name of God, even if you don’t like me, stop it. The police have started their investigation. He confessed! Why do you need to see a child being molested? why?
“Which kind of life are we living that our children are no longer safe. Look at me I don’t have anything except those children. It is enough! Please leave me alone. If you believe that I am lying why don’t you wish it on your children or go and see him in Panti and ask him.
“Why would I want to set him up? Someone that I’m the one that I’m helping him. But let me tell you especially those people plotting. Even if I die today justice will be served. All of you saying different thing, what do you want these children’s parent to say? They gave me these children to console me. Everyone knows I don’t have a child. What will I gain if I set up someone I’ve been helping for years?
