Things seemingly are not looking very good for Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi as he has no doubt landed himself in a serious trouble.
The Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) on Monday, July 26th, 2021 said that it will prosecute the actor for contempt of court for releasing a movie that contains the facts of a case which is under judicial examination.
The State Director of Public Prosecution, Mrs. Olayinka Adeyemi on Monday told an Ikeja Special Offences Court that Fabiyi produced a movie entitled “Oko Iyabo,” based on the court proceedings of June 24, 2021.
According to Adeyemi; “Despite the warnings of this honourable court, an actor called Yomi Fabiyi went ahead and made a movie about the facts of this case.”
“He used real names of the parties and witnesses in this matter in the movie. Our application is to exclude him, his privies and his agents from proceedings in court.”
“He is not in court at the moment but his representatives may be in court. This is contempt of court and we intend to prosecute him and bring him before this court.”
Furthermore, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo in his reaction, said; “This case is sub judice and you are not to be making videos and disparaging comments on social media. This needs to be investigated.”
