TAMPAN, Nigeria’s Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Practitioners’ Association, has summoned actor Yomi Fabiyi in connection with his controversial new film “Oko Iyabo.”
According to sources, the actor was accused of creating a film on Baba Ijesha’s rape storey using actual names of individuals involved in the case, as well as making it seem as though the youngster was having an affair with Baba Ijesha, who is now facing child molestation and sexual abuse charges.
TAMPAN’s Director of Research and Documentation, Yemi Amodu, said that Fabiyi was invited because the film has created new divisions within the organisation and the general public.
TAMPAN went on to say that the uproar sparked by the film’s subject matter is incompatible with its ethics and goodness. “Justice will be served,” the public has been told.
The declaration was as follows:
“The TAMPAN Committee on Ethics, Conflict, and Resolution wants to notify the general public that it has summoned Mr. Yomi Fabiyi, the Producer/Director of the controversial film “OKO IYABO,” to appear before it on Thursday, July 11th, 2021.
“Because of the uproar that his film’s subject matter has sparked, which is contrary to our ethics and virtues, this invitation has become very essential.
“Despite this, we recognise that the video has generated a new round of controversy between TAMPAN and the general public; this is unacceptable to us and unfit for what we represent.”
“We now urge the general public and parties involved to exhibit patient as our esteemed association is on top of this matter and will undoubtedly guarantee fairness and justice.”
