Baba Ijesha Granted Bail

Olarenwaju Omiyinka James, a Yoruba actor popularly known as Baba Ijesha, detained by police for alleged sexual assault has just been released on bail on health grounds.

The Yoruba actor has been in custody at the State CID, Panti, for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old-girl in the home of comedienne, Adekola Adekanya, popularly called ‘Princess.’ Due to the industrial strike by the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), courts have been shut and cases adjourned.

The release of Baba Ijesha on Monday afternoon came as a result of magistrates going around police stations across Lagos State, listening to cases, and giving hearings to those arrested.

Baba Ijesha’s case was the subject of a national speech and raised the issue of pedophilia and rape in Nigeria.

A lawyer told FIJ that Baba Ijesha’s release on health grounds sounded more like an easy way out. The case had been forwarded by the Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal advice.

There has however been skepticism on how the DPP handles cases of sexual assault and rape. In 2019, Don-Chima George and Rasaq Oluwasegun were arrested for gang-raping a 23-year-old lady. The DPP however failed to produce key witnesses to help in the prosecution of the case.

The Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Moyosore Onigbanjo, SAN, had stated on May 4 that “the Ministry of Justice would not relent in its efforts in ensuring that whoever sexually abuses any resident of Lagos State is speedily brought to book.”

Recall some weeks ago, the alleged attorney for beleaguered Nollywood actor, Olarenwaju Omiyinka James, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, Akin Olafeso said Nigerian comedian, Princess set up his client over an alleged illegal affair between the duo.

In a post published on Facebook, Akin Olafeso revealed that the actor had an affair with Princess in the past. However, his client gained access to her family through this means and molested the 14-year-old adopted daughter.

Olafeso also revealed that although when he molested the little girl, Princess had no idea about it, but as soon as she got the wind that her daughter was molested by the actor, she went into action to set him up in a bid to teach Baba Ijesha a lesson. (Continue reading)
