Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja has adjourned the child molestation case levelled against Nollywood actor Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha.
While delivering judgment, Justice Taiwo adjourned the case after the counsel for Adekola Adekanya, also known as Comedienne Princess, played primary evidence against the embattled Nollywood actor.
During plenary, Princess told the court that she met the Nollywood actor during an event in 2008, noting that the two decided to collaborate on comedic sketches. She claims he wooed her during their working relationship, but she declined his proposal.
Princess stated she became close to the actor, especially after her marriage ended in 2013. Princess claimed that she put money into Baba Ijesha’s schooling, adding that the actor later paid her a visit at her house.
You will recall that men of the Lagos State police arrested Baba Ijesha for allegedly assaulting a 14-year-old girl sexually. He was charged on six counts of indecent treatment of a child and sexual assault by penetration.
