Baba Ijesha: Adewale Elesho Begs Princess To ‘Have Mercy’ (Video)

President of the Association of Nigeria Theatre Practitioners (ANTP), Adewale Elesho has finally made a statement concerning Baba Ijesha’s case of sexual assault and molestation, NewsPremises reports.

In a video posted on social media, the veteran actor thanked everyone who had lent their voices to the case and then proceeded to air his opinion.


Elesho used the opportunity to beg Princes to temper justice with mercy as the case was already getting out of hand considering Baba Ijesha’s state of health.

He continued by saying that she should remember the great friendship she had with Baba Ijesha.

The president said that he had to intervene after someone pointed out to him that Baba Ijesha is an actor it is a good reason why he should not be left in his trouble all by himself.

He appealed to the actors behind Princess to think very well about their involvement in the case because no one knows tomorrow.

Elesho also begged the Lagos state commissioner of police to do a thorough investigation and the governor of the state to have mercy as well.

He further made a passionate appeal to everyone concerned in the case to have mercy on Ijesha and Nollywood as a whole.

“I am using this medium to plead with Princess to please temper justice with mercy because it is getting out of hand. She should please look at how she started with Baba Ijesha. She should not allow this fight to brew up something else.

“Princess, please have mercy on Baba Ijesha. All of you that are fanning the fight, remember that you are artistes as well. It is today we know, we don’t know tomorrow.

“I plead with the parents of the victim, whether it is true or it’s not true, it is only God that knows what we don’t know. They should take it easy.

“I also appeal to the state Commissioner of Police in Lagos state to also handle the case very well.

“I also beg Governor Sanwo-Olu, we are all the same thing. Ijesha is an artiste, I am also an artiste. We are the ones that helped campaign for you and we stood by you. We are the ones in need of help now, have mercy on us. It is not easy to build a name in this field. Now look at how easy to soil a name.

“Princess I am begging you.’ You can imagine if Baba Ijesha dies in prison. All of you that are threatening and wailing, what would you now say? Princess you are the one I plead with the most,” he said.
