Famous actor, Yomi Fabiyi is in big trouble as the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) has stated that it will prosecute him for contempt of court for releasing a movie about the facts of a case under judicial consideration.
Director of Public Prosecution, Lagos State, Mrs. Olayinka Adeyemi on Monday, July 26th, 2021 told an Ikeja Special Offences Court that Fabiyi produced a movie entitled “Oko Iyabo,” based on the court proceedings of June 24, 2021.
Adeyemi said; “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.”
In his reaction, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo 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.”
