As lately, claims by comedienne and entertainer, Adeyela Adebola, famously known as Omo Ibadan or Lizzy Jay, that film maker, Abiodun Jimoh, attempted to attack her, turned into a web sensation.
Jimoh had a week ago denied the claims in a selective meeting with Saturday Beats, saying he never had physical contact with Omo Ibadan. At the time, Omo Ibadan didn’t react to the inquiries addresses Saturday Beats sent to her, however, has now done as such.
As indicated by her, she chose to discuss it since she wanted to represent other people who may experience the ill effects of such encounters.
“I alleged that he molested me sexually. For the record, when the whole thing started, I informed my family and a few older people in the industry about it. They asked me to keep calm and move on. If I wanted to institute an action then, I would have (done so).
“I felt I needed to be at peace with my mind as regards the issue, and to give a voice to whoever is suffering or has suffered the same fate as mine, hence the outburst. Like I said on my Instagram page, the molestation of a woman is a desecration of her values. Rape trend or not, we all have our ways of addressing issues peculiar to us.
“For the record again, I maintain my stand and I reiterate all I have said without any equivocation, save for the fact that I do not intend to do further than I have done so far, having found my peace, and because of the intervention of some persons I respect like Mr Latin and Mr Yinka Quadri.
“However, if anyone feels he has been defamed by my outburst or allegation, let him seek redress and I will furnish the right quarters with my evidence,” she told Saturday Beats.
Omo Ibadan used to be a piece of Jimoh’s film creation group before her exit from his group. At the point when gotten some information about how she would depict her functioning association with Jimoh, she noticed that it was an intriguing stage for her. She stated, “I would be a scoundrel in the event that I state working with him for a couple of months was not fascinating. I just got the chance to go out to see his film sets sometimes; like I previously stated, I focus more on my satire than acting. I needed to in the end quit when I couldn’t adapt to his few moves and activities. What’s more, for the record, he didn’t send me away, I quit, I left the gathering without anyone else; he knows about this, just as other individuals I educated about my goal to leave.”
Talking about different difficulties she had looked in her profession as a performer, she noticed that there were actually no difficulties when she just did parody plays.
