‘Baba Ijesha defiled minor’ – Forensic expert

Embattled Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha, has sunk deeper in his molestation morass after a child forensic interview expert, Mrs Anike Ajayi-Kayode, claimed he defiled the said minor in his case.

Mrs Ajayi-Kayode is the Executive Director of the Cece Yara Foundation, a non-governmental organisation founded to prevent child sexual abuse and provide emergency intervention for children.

Testifying as the third prosecution witness, Ajayi-Kayode told the court that the alleged victim was relaxed, cooperative and could recall events when she was being interviewed.

She said, “The clinal presentation of child sexual abuse was quite evident. The perpetrator engaged the child in sexual activity when she was seven years old on two occasions.

“On the 19th of April 2021, he sexually harassed her, touching her body. He told her: ‘I touched you some years back, you are so grown, so developed. Do you have a boyfriend? We have some unfinished business.

“These are the clinical presentations of child sexual abuse.

“These are the dynamics of child sexual abuse and the modus operandi of perpetrators – inculcation of secrecy, intimidation, threat or coercion.”

Ajayi-Kayode said that after the interview, she drafted a forensic interview report, a copy of which has been presented to the court by the prosecution as evidence. It was marked as Exhibit G.

“My conclusion is that she narrated the whole truth, she was tenacious, she was bold and relaxed,” the expert said, before the case was adjourned till October 20.
