The Ikeja Special Offences Court has sparked Nigerians’ reactions as it adjourned the alleged rape case against veteran Yoruba Nollywood actor Olanrewaju James otherwise addressed as Baba Ijesha.
Kemi Filani News recalls there was mass outrage when comedian cum actress, Princess, accused Baba Ijesha in 2021 of defiling her 14-year-old ward.
In a video that was made available online, the actress accused Baba Ijesha of molesting her daughter without consent.
Nollywood stars such as Iyabo Ojo and Yomi Fabiyi have been at loggerheads over the issue as the former supported Princess’ side of the story. At the same time, the latter took a stand for his colleague. The allegations led to a messy fight between them.
Moving on, reports revealed that Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo adjourned the case for judgment until the 14th of July.
Baba Ijesha is facing a six-count charge of indecent treatment of a child, s€xual assault, attempted s€xual assault by p€netration and s€xual assault by p€netration, although he pleaded not guilty.
Mixed reactions have been trailing the latest development on Baba Ijesha’s alleged rape case as many called for the release of the actor. But, at the same time, some wondered why the case was pending despite the evidence provided.
