‘If you insult the elders in the cause of anger, look no further, you have been insulting your parents’, Actor Yomi Fabiyi revisits feud with Iyabo Ojo

Nollywood actor Yomi Fabiyi has revisited his feud with his colleague Iyabo Ojo following the ban on her and actress Nkechi Blessing during a press briefing on Sunday by the head of TAMPAN veteran actor Jide Kosoko.

In a post shared, the actor proposed Iyabo Ojo shouldn’t have let her emotions get in the way while involving herself in Baba Ijesha child molestation case; rather, she should have just let the law enforcement agents handle it.

According to him, denting the image of TAMPAN via social media gives the government a chance to cage the association freedom of expression.

Going further, he said if they can display their mannerless attitude to the higher-ups in the industry, it means they can insult their parents.

He wrote:
In serious matters particularly with criminal undertone, stop relying on your own discretion, jungle justice, social media or emotions. Inform law enforcement, your lawyer and trust them to handle it.

The COURT of LAW is a different ball game. Social Media and comment section easily follow the narrative the person posting want to play in people’s head and that will keep giving the politicians reasons to want to cage this vital tool aiding our freedom of expression. Don’t give them that chance.

Always think outside the box, pay attention to details and see the bigger picture on anything posted, remember PEACE, SECURITY and HUMAN RIGHTS of others before posting or act otherwise. The LAW is sacrosanct. Arrogance of ignorance displayed on social media ends there, it doesn’t affect the position of the law especially in the court of law. These folks swore to protect the constitution not social media opinion. If social media opinion go in the direction of the law, good for the society. DO THE RIGHT THING, STAND BY WHAT IS RIGHT.

It is a career built offline that social media will love, it is fame getting consistency offline that gets relevant online. Over addiction and reliance on social media is making so many people reckless and don’t care what they throw or say online on serious issues. Use the LIBRARY(Online and Offline).

Don’t forget, no matter how small your interaction is with anybody, never let your manners slip, it may cost you nothing but can earn you a lot. CULTURE OF RESPECT is crucial to the existence of some industries or institutions, you are a curse if you indulge it or find excuse for it.

Before you copy my guts, ask from me personally. My one cent.

However, this came after Baba Ijesha was granted bail and TAMPAN placed a ban on the two actresses. Although, Yomi claimed he had forgiven Iyabo Ojo for all the hurts done to him during the trials, he still came back to give his own piece on the matter.
