Baba Ijesha Set For Bail
Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Olayinka aka Baba Ijesha is set to be released from police custody due to the ongoing strike by members of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, which has made it impossible for the courts to sit.
According to a report by a news outlet, a senior police in Lagos state revealed that a directive has been issued to release him within the next 24 hours as the suspect could not be detained indefinitely without trial.
According to the source “There was no case of defilement, people are just talking out of sentiment. They do not talk from the point of the law. We interviewed all parties involved in the case for 3 hours on Wednesday”
The mother complained that her child was at the age of seven when she was defiled and her child pointed at Baba Ijesha. But the case was not reported until she was 14 years and under the law, the case has become statute barred.
It was described as indecent assault and not sexual harassment and it is open to bail.
