Baba Ijesha pleads not guilty

Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha, on Wednesday pleaded not guilty before a Yaba Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State.

Baba Ijesha who was accused of molesting a 14-year-old appeared before the court on Wednesday.

He was charged on a four-count charge of sexual assault and indecent treatment of a child.

Recall that the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), Lagos State Ministry of Justice, had ruled out any possibility of releasing Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James aka Baba Ijesha, on bail.

The DPP had advised the police to still detain Baba Ijesha, because the case against him “is sexual assault by penetration”.
