Nollywood Actress, Iyabo Ojo has apologised to the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) following the controversy which came up after Baba Ijesha’s rape case became public.
TAMPAN recently announced that it is suspending Iyabo Ojo and Nkechi Blessing following their action on social media in relation to the rape case involving Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly called Baba Ijesha.
The organization accused the actresses of “reckless accusations, abuses and embarrassment of our sector”.
However, their decision was criticized by Nkechi Blessing and some other celebrities but Iyabo Ojo on Thursday took to her Instagram page to apologise to the elders of TAMPAN.
She wrote: “I would like to say thank you to @esabodofficialpage.
