Yomi Fabiyi speaks on the importance of justice for all to the press
Controversial Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi, who also appeared to be in the court, shared a video of himself speaking with members of the press on his Instagram page.
The movie star spoke on how justice could not be reached without a fair hearing, regardless of whoever was involved.
“My opinion has always been that justice cannot be served if there is no fair hearing. Fair hearing is crucial to justice.”

Speaking further, Fabiyi said that his standpoint had always been that everybody deserves to be heard and the rule of law is not just for the victims but also for the suspect and everybody else.
Fabiyi said the present young generation is always quick to assume that whenever anybody is accused of a crime, then they are already condemned and do not deserve to be heard irrespective of the evidences gathered.
The actor then asked what the case would be if Baba Ijesha is eventually found innocent, considering that he had been in detention for about two months. He asked who would bear the damages that had been done.
