Just In: Nollywood star 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 in the company of family members.

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

In the lead up to his arraignment, the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), Lagos State Ministry of Justice, had ruled out any possibility of releasing him on bail.

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

But the decision was met with outrage by some of his colleagues and legal team, who argue that his charges are bailable.
