Nollywood Yoruba actor, Mr Latin, has come out to condemn the actions of his colleague, Baba Ijesha.
The actor who was speaking on behalf of TAMPAN( a Yoruba theatre association), disassociated him from TAMPAN.
He went on to state that the organisation is disappointed with his acts and would work with government to ensure justice is served.
He wrote on his Instagram page:
“TAMPAN PRESS RELEASE
THIS WAS RELEASED ON @tampanglobal PAGE 5 DAYS AGO. We find it obligatory to condemn in totality the odious occurrence of pedophile confessed to by Mr Olanrewaju James aka Baba Ijesha as confirmed by the police. Our association is TAMPAN is crestfallen about this act and will reproach and remonstrate the committer of such exclusive sexual harassment to prepubescent children.
Considering the sensitivity of the case, which is still under investigation according to Lagos State Commissioner of Police, TAMPAN will never support all acts against what we preach and represent. As an association, we understand the Mores and Social Norm of our people and our behaviour will always be homiletic.
We sympathise with the parents of the victim and also seize this opportunity to charge all parents to give their children or wards freedom to express themselves for a timely arrest of such horrible acts whenever such are committed.
Finally, we will always stand for actions that are morally standard and continue to be law abiding.
