The Nollywood actor recently published a video on his Instagram page demanding the court to be unbiased.

His post reads;

”Part of my concerns and why the law must act unbiased. Fighting for the rights of the child means getting justice against all abuses and assaults done against her innocence and her wish.

“Have you ask yourself, what if in the process of the set up there was violence, door locked behind and aside been raped, the girl was killed, will ALL THE ADULTS INVOLVED be let go.

“How can the law be BLIND to that and set a horrible antecedent for several innocent children in our society?

“Where are the SOCIAL SERVICES in the state, why is the DPP advice silent on all the crimes involved in the entire episodes and all that done against the child, why the silence on all that?”
