- The establishment of the GoFundMe account, however, did not sit well with some Nigerians on social media, who took to Facebook to vent their displeasure.
There have been various reactions from social media media users following the GoFundMe account set up for Baba Ijesha, who is facing sexual assault charges.
Recall that EkoHotBlog had yesterday reported how a certain Oladele Matti, who lives in Dublin, Ireland, organized the fundraiser, which had a goal of €50,000 (about N20 million) and was headlined, “Help Olanrewaju Omiyinka with Legal Costs.”
The establishment of the GoFundMe account, however, did not sit well with some Nigerians on social media, who took to Facebook to vent their displeasure.
See some reactions gathered by EkoHotBlog below;
Jessica Mogbo, “See some people supporting this act. How many sick actors or actresses have they raised funds for? Misplaced priorities.”
Olatunji Amida “This is a fraudulent act and must be condemned. Oladele Matti who resides in Dublin, Ireland, should know the implication of the charges leveled against Baba Ijesha. I think he has ulterior motives and personal interests in the GoFundMe proceeds! This is absolutely a misplaced priority.”
Tajudeen Buhari They … can’t raise money to empower the youths and unfortunately, many senseless graduates will still keep hailing their action. What a nation!”
Describing the action as “arrant nonsense,” Ogunsola Nurudeen asked, “Why not persuade those human rights lawyers for legal assistance…?”
“Same friends that bash the Nigerian government every day, why raise money for someone accused of sexual assault? With a child for that matter. Absolute lunacy… ” Lucianno Omo said.
