Why we cannot ban Baba Ijesha from theatre association - Mr Latin

Despite the recent allegations leveled against the popular actor, Olanrewaju James alias Baba Ijesha, Veteran Nollywood actor, Bolaji Amusan aka as Mr. Latin has given reasons why his colleague cannot be banned from the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPPAN).

His comments come as Baba Ijesha battles alleged child molestation case brought against him.

Amusan, who is chairman of TAMPPAN had earlier condemned the defilement allegations leveled against Baba Ijesha, vowing to support the government to ensure that ignoble acts are checked within the society.

In a recent three-minute video shared on Amusan’s Instagram page obtained by The Nation, the veteran Yoruba actor condemned the alleged actions of Baba Ijesha.

Amusan stated he has been inundated with calls from different persons to ban Baba Ijesha from TAMPPAN.

He however stated categorically that Baba Ijesha was never a member of the association and so cannot be banned.

He stressed as a colleague in the industry, the best he could do is to condemn the act labelled against Baba Ijesha, adding no right-thinking human will do such a thing Baba Ijesha was alleged to have done, The Nations reports.
