Nollywood Actor, Olanrewaju James popularly known as, Baba Ijesha who was arrested for sexually molesting 14-year-old foster daughter of Comedienne Princess, has been granted bail.
He was granted bail on Monday, May 17, 2021 after spending almost three weeks in police custody after he was caught on CCTV sexually molesting a girl who he allegedly raped when she was 7-years-old.
A magistrate who was at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti to review some cases in a bid to decongest the police facility granted Baba Ijesha bail on health grounds.
Baba Ijesha is yet to be released as his lawyer, Adesina Ogunlana, is working towards perfecting his bail condition which includes that he must have two sureties. One of the sureties must be a Level 10 Public officer while the second surety must be a relation of the actor. The bail is put at N500, 000 in bond.
The accused actor is yet to be charged to court due to the industrial strike by the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN)
