Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka alias Baba Ijesha will face an Ikeja Special Offences Court on Thursday following allegations of sexual assault of a minor.
According to the judge’s cause list, Baba Ijesha, who has been in detention since his arrest on April 22, will be tried by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo on June 24.
Remember that the actor was charged with indecent treatment of a minor, defilement of a child, attempted sexual assault by penetration, and sexual assault on June 16 at a Yaba Magistrates’ Court.
He pled not guilty to the charge, but Magistrate P.E Nwaka ordered him to be held in custody pending the outcome of the case in the High Court.
Magistrates Nwaka in that ruling said: ”I have carefully considered the application of the counsel to the defendant seeking bail for the defendant and the opposition by the counsel from the DPP.
“Since there are indications that the matter is before the high court and the defendant will appear before the court, no bail can be given.
“The defendant must be accorded full medical attention by the authorities pending his arraignment at the High Court.”
Meanwhile, Nigerian actor Omiyinka James also known as Baba Ijesha has landed himself in more soup after some pieces of evidence were shared by some of his workers.
It seems Baba Ijesha’s case is getting more worst each day as some of his workers have revealed some pieces of evidence which are similar damning experiences. Some audios which have leaked online have gone against the actor as he was being accused by some of his workers.
According to the incriminating audios shared by popular actress Princess Damilola, the workers of Baba Ijesha were heard in the voice notes confirming that the actor could be guilty of the accusations leveled against him.
