On Monday, comedienne Adekola Adekanya, commonly known as Princess, told the Lagos State Special Offences Court in the Ikeja region how she met embattled Nollywood star Olanrewaju Omiyinka, nicknamed Baba Ijesha.
Princess claims she met Baba Ijesha at an event in 2008 and the two decided to collaborate on comedic sketches.
Baba Ijesha wooed her during their working relationship, according to the comedian, but she declined his proposal.
After then, Princess stated she became close to the actor, especially after her marriage ended in 2013.
The comedian claimed she put money into Baba Ijesha’s schooling, and the actor later paid her a visit at her house.
Princess also told Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo about the allegation of child abuse against the actor, which included Baba Ijesha and actress Iyabo Ojo.
As at the time of reporting this story, Baba Ijesha has yet to comment. Babatunde Ogala SAN represented him, among others, while Olayinka Adeyemi represented the prosecution, the Lagos State Government.
