Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has said she would use all in her power to make sure, Actor, Olarenwaju James, more known as Baba Ijesha rots in jail for allegedly defiling a 14-year old girl, Njenje Media News reports.
Tonto Dikeh, in a post on her Instagram page, said the Yoruba actor must not be granted bail if found guilty of the offense.
Njenje Media News recalls that Baba Ijesha was recently arrested in Lagos for rape and defilement with the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosing that the actor started sexually assaulting the teenager when she was seven years old.

The case has been transferred to the Gender Unit of the State CID, Panti, Yaba Lagos for further investigation.
In Tonto Dikeh’s words:
“If the allegations are true, I hope he rots in jail and they do the same thing to him when his soap drops. If it is true, I will personally make sure he never sees the light of day.”
Dikeh also urged women to show solidarity over the matter, stressing that Baba Ijesha must not be released on bail.
“We will come together as women, stand up and use our voices to make awareness of what this man has done. Anyone with information on this, please contact me.
“This evil man must not be released nor granted bail. They may tweak the law to his favor as a celebrity, what we should all do is repost this and tag foreign and local authorities,” she said.
According to her, the actor must not be spared because of his celebrity status.
“He raped us all when he raped her. Mothers, come out, they have stabbed us. This is the face of a celebrity rapist. This is the face of evil that pleasures himself with a seven-year-old for seven years.
“He is a Nollywood/Yoruba actor (I do not know him, never heard of him either). He may be your favorite star. Have you heard what he did to the life of a seven-year-old girl? He raped a seven-year-old girl for seven years,” the mother of one wrote.
