Damilola Adekoya, the foster mother of the girl molested by Nigerian actor, James Omiyinka, also known as Baba Ijesha, has distanced herself from the publication of the CCTV footage showing the girl being groped by the actor.
Adekoya, a comedian and actress popularly known as Princess, said through her lawyers on Sunday that she had nothing to do with the publication of the video.
The Punch published the video on its Twitter and YouTube account on Sunday morning.
The footage has since gone viral on social and has been republished by hundreds of social media accounts.
“Our client disclaims any liability or responsibility whatsoever that arises from the publication of the video on the internet or any social media platform showing Olanrewaju James Omiyinka (Baba Ijesha) molesting our client’s foster daughter,” Adekoya’s lawyers Ibilola Subair Law Firm said in a statement.
“Our client did not authorize the release of the CCTV footage by Punch Media or any other person whatsoever.”
