While Nigerians are still grappling with a popular Nollywood actor’s alleged defilement case in court and the rude shock that accompanied it, an unpopular actor may be walking the route of spotlight without paying his due.
Aliu Oladele Gafar, a filmmaker and chief executive of Main Page Concept, a feature film and television production company, has been accused of allegedly abducting a 14year old girl and took sexual advantage of same.
The girl, Aina Bolarinwa, went missing late on Thursday evening, July 29, 2021, in Sango area of Ogun State and investigations by the her guardians revealed that she was in the movie maker’s custody till the following day.
It was shocking to realise that contrary to the dictates of the producer of Peregun’s profession, the girl was not scripting nor acting; the actor allegedly used her to satisfy his sexual desire.
Peregun, which featured the producer himself, Ibrahim Chata, Yewande Odukoya, Dupe Jaiyesinmi and many others, boasted of being selected for the New York Independent Cinema Awards, according to a July 10, 2021 post by the producer on his Facebook account.
“It’s PEREGUN year … I’m honored and excited… New York Independent Cinema Awards selected PEREGUN to be included in festival…. Alhamdulilahi 🙏🙏❤️❤️ Thank you all for the love … Second selection of the month ❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸,” he wrote excitedly.
Either due to the excitement or a way to boost his chances at the awards, Gafar allegedly decided to defile an underage girl in his house behind the popular Canaanland, the campus of Winners’ Chapel (Living Faith Church), an Evangelical megachurch in Ota, Ogun State.
According to the victim’s foster mum, Oluwakemi Sunday, who narrated the girl’s ordeal to Freelanews’ correspondent, Ade Oluwaferanmi, it was confirmed that the filmmaker, who is popularly known as Boda Ali in Peace Estate, Zone 4 Arobieye, abducted the girl.
“In the evening of Thursday, July 9, 2021, my daughter, Aina, said she wanted to go and fetch water at Boda Ali’s house and I told her not to go as it was already late. I instructed her to do that the following morning before going to work. Boda Ali usually allowed the community to fetch water for free in his compound.
“She then returned the bucket and went outside to monitor a small shop I operate outside the house with her sister. We usually close the shop around 10pm daily.
“According to the story her sister later told me, while at the shop, Boda Ali came around and beckoned her over. Aina went to him and they started chatting. Suddenly, they disengaged when they noticed that someone was approaching and Aina returned to the shop where I sell breads and other petty things.
“Later around 10:30pm, Boda Ali called Aina again when the coast was clear and they continued their discussion before Aina returned to the shop.
“A friend’s daughter, who was on her way to buy something at my shop, later told me she had to run back out of fear when she saw someone hiding in push, whispering ‘Aina, se kia! Aina, se kia!’ (Aina, hurry up!)
“She went back home to call her sister to accompany her because she was afraid of someone hiding in the bush around Aina’s house. On getting to the spot, they realised it was Boda Ali who they greeted and they all went their ways,” Oluwakemi narrated.
Freelanews corespondent, Oluwaferanmi, was informed that when Aina’s foster mum became worried when she suddenly realised Aina was not in the house sleeping with her siblings.
She told us that she went to outside to wake her to lock the shop and come inside thinking maybe she must have slept off.
“I was initially annoyed and sat in front of the house waiting for her, wondering when she started being wayward.
“While waiting, I saw Boda Ali who greeted me and walked on. Few minutes later, he walked past the shop on his return journey,” the foster mum, who didn’t see anything strange in that at the time, narrated.
After a long wait and no signs of Aina, she placed a call across to her own friend whose children are also Aina’s friends to find out from them if they had seen Aina; their responses were negative.
“On Friday’s morning, I went to the woman again and told her the girl didnt sleep at home. The woman now called her children, who later told us they saw Boda Ali hiding in the push and whispering Aina hurry up. And my daughter, who was with Aina at the shop also claimed that she called Aina twice when she was chatting with Boda Ali because it was getting late but she didn’t answer her.
“So I went to Boda Ali’s house and asked him if he had seen Aina because she came to fetch water yesterday. And he replied that he had not and wondered why she wouldn’t return home ‘when she is not a small girl; a girl of 16 to 17years old’.
“I told him that Aina may be endowed with breasts but she is just 14years old,” Oluwakemi countered Gafar.
So immediately, the filmmaker volunteered to search for the missing child with the mum while he kept comforting her to calm down that he was convinced Aina was okay.
“I hope you have not raised alarm,” Gafar allegedly asked the mum and she answered that she had not.
Late in the evening of Thursday, the physically depreciated Aina was seen wondering along the road far away from her home when a bike headlight shone on her and a friend of the mum recognised her.
“My friend brought her back to the community and I was sad to see how haggard she was looking,” she explained.
Aina narrated how Gafar lured her into his house and disflowered her forcefully.
“I’m appealing to the relevant authority to please come to our aid and ensure that justice is served,” Oluwakemi wailed.
According to our correspondent following up on the case, Freelanews can confirm that movie maker has been missing since the case leaked and calls made to his number didn’t connect as at the time of publishing this report.

Meet Adenike Animasahun, Fast Rising Teacher Turned Actor Goes To Location With Teniola
Adenike Animashaun has just completed her new movie titled Teniola, a movie Content she has described as a master piece that would correct vices in the society that border on marital squabbles, especially in some homes of renowned men of God.
According to the Ekiti State based Nollywood Actor, she said, “This is a project I believed would go places and it will better the lives of so many out there that are suffering in silence.
Teniola is a true life story of a man of God whose quest to serve God made him jettison his responsibility to his beautiful wife. The Pastor at a point had no time sexually for the wife again and the woman did seek solace elsewhere and trouble began in the house that used to be peaceful.”
Adenike said many out there would gain a lot by watching the movie from how the trouble began and how the family was able to settle their differences and putting it behind them.
Her sojourn in the movie world dated back to a decade ago when she wrote a story meant for book publication but she later turned it to a home movie.
She said, “My quest for drama fell into place during my undergraduate days at the university. Being a language student, it’s paramount to take courses in drama, and we had drama classes almost all the sessions in school. One of my lecturers that handled the course was very good at it and this gingered my interest and here I am today. I have been in the industry for over a decade and to my name, I have five different movies.”
Her first movie she titled Imado had Nollywood Actors based in Ekiti as major cast and in quick succession, she came up with another one titled Ogun Odun. This time, fellow actors that are veterans in the industry were called to location and this gave her a facelift in her career.
Adenike said, “Having discovered the passion and my love for movie making, this propelled me to visit Lagos and I went straight to Odunfa Caucus to polish the talent in me. I met Sunny Alli who introduced me to Alhaji Yinka Quadri, and the whole of Odunfa gave me the necessary support I needed and the story has been a great one today.”
Reacting to how she has been able to manage her profession as a teacher-cum-actor, she said, “Acting is more or less a holiday job to me. I love teaching and part of my plan is taking it further than being a classroom teacher in a secondary school to a lecturer. So, this I believe would tell people how much I love teaching as a profession.
“Meanwhile, acting is like a passion- something I do anytime we are on long vacation. To God be the glory, I have been able to do well despite having it as plan B in my thought.”
She stressed further that taking her location to Lagos for her movie, Teniola made it a much bigger project than the rest four she had done before now. She said, “Having to feature top stars like Yomi Fash-Lanso, Yetunde Wunmi, Bukky Biola, Ladi Foarin, Silver Animasahun, Funmi Ladepo and others gave the movie more plans and better prospect than the previous ones from my stable. Teniola is directed by Lekan Oropo, and all these are wonderful people that made my coming to Lagos to shoot a movie for the first time an act to remember.”
Taking an insight into her new production, she said, “There is no crime if a woman begs her hubby for sex. I can beg my husband for sex, this is what many out there don’t do and in the cause of that, many have stooped so low sleeping with their security guards, neighbors and their drivers despite being married.
This was Teniola’s mistake and it almost ruined her home before something drastic was done to safe the situation. Women should stop dying in silence, do what will prevent your home from collapse and protect the future of your children. Talking to one’s partner is the best remedy in today’s marriage. There is always a big gain in talking to one another in a marriage; this and many more are the reality in Teniola.”
The Ebira born actress said she picked interest in Yoruba language right from her childhood. “I am from Kogi state, I am an Ebira lady by birth but my parents lived and had all their children in Yoruba land, hence we were given names in Yoruba and along the line, I married and have children for a Yoruba man.”
Her next movie according to her is Afusa Olofi. She said, she will be going back to location soon to shoot this breath-taking movie that will rule the entertainment industry.
“Afusa Olofi is another big one coming from me. It is a story that will give people another phase of deceit, intrigues in an educative and entertaining way.
