Nigerians have descended heavily on Veteran actor Adewale Elesho who weighed in on the trending issue of between comedian Princess and Yoruba actor Baba Ijesha following the case filed against the actor.
It is no news that Baba Ijesha was held accountable for sexually harassing a 7 year old girl who is now 14 years old. Baba Ijesha who was arrested has been granted bail with two sureties. Princess in a video stated that Baba Ijesha defiled her daughter 7 years ago without knowing but her daughter opened up to her when she turned 14 years.
In reaction actor Elesho has appealed to Princess, the governor of Lagos State and the State Police Command to have mercy on the Yoruba actor.
However, the video drew many reactions from social media with many Nigerians disagreeing with the Yoruba actor. They noted that Baba Ijesha should face justice over the crime he committed and some further posed a question to the actor asking whether he was going to let go had it been her daughter in that case. Ghgossip compiled some reactions from Nigerians;

Thank you sir”
