The Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja has adjourned the alleged child molestation case against embattled actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka popularly known as Baba Ijesha till Tuesday July 27, 2021.
The case was adjourned by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo after the counsel for Comedienne Princess played primary evidence against the accused.
However, journalists were sent out of the court before playing the video clip which was said to have captured Baba Ijesha while allegedly molesting a minor.
Baba Ijesha, actress Iyabo Ojo, amongst others were in court as Princess told the judge how she met Baba Ijesha and how the actor allegedly sexually assaulted the minor.
According to Princess, she met Baba Ijesha in 2008 at an event and the two decided to start making comedy skits together.
The comedienne also claimed Ijesha wooed her in the process of their work relationship but she rejected his proposal.
Princess said she got close to the actor afterward, especially after her marriage crashed around 2013.
The comedienne claimed she invested in Baba Ijesha’s education and the actor visited her at home thereafter.
She claimed the actor had visited her at her residence on the day he was caught allegedly sexually assaulting her foster daughter.
Baba Ijesha was yet to speak when the case was adjourned and slated to resume tomorrow after examination of the primary evidence. He was represented by Babatunde Ogala SAN, amongst others, while the prosecutor, the Lagos State Government, was represented by Olayinka Adeyemi.
