Actor and human rights activist, Yomi Fabiyi, has reacted to the series of backlashes he has received over his controversial movie titled, ‘Oko Iyabo’, reiterating that the movie was not banned.

Fabiyi said he has the rights to write his own story.

WuzupNigeria reported that Yomi Fabiyi had recreated a scene of what transpired between the embattled actor, Omiyinka Olanrewaju aka Baba Ijesha, and the foster child of comedienne Princess he allegedly assaulted.

Baba Ijesha was charged with indecent treatment of a child, defilement of a child, sexual assault by penetration, attempted sexual assault by penetration, and sexual assault, which contravene sections 135, 137, 261, 202, 262 and 263 of the Lagos State Criminal Law, 2015.

But Fabiyi said in a post on his Instagram page that his movie was not banned, rather it was a deliberate act to make it private in order to reduce the tensions and heat that was emanating from different angles since the movie surfaced.

While defending the movie, the rights activist said that Iyabo Ojo and Princess at some time had also used his full name in some movies and videos but he didn’t agitate because he is a person who believes in the fundamental rights of humans.

Fabiyi said, “I hand you all to your consciences and God.

“No amount of all these can pull me down.

“AND NOBODY BANNED MY MOVIE. We private it deliberately just to give room for calm. At some point OKO IYABO MOVIE will be released on DVD, YouTube and others. You can’t abort an already born baby.

“Censor’s board will rate OKO IYABO when I apply and everybody will enjoy the movie soon because it is about two young actors, Yomi & Iyabo fighting on a case from different angles and personalities.

“The movie has enough message. MY FULL RESPONSE TOMORROW.

“Thank you all for your continued support and genuine concerns.
