Baba Ijesha To Spend 16 Years Behind Bars

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

An Ikeja Special Offences Court has convicted Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James, better known as Baba Ijesha, of sexually assaulting a colleague, Comedienne Princess.

The Thursday conviction over the 14-year-old adopted daughter thus brought to an end, the trial which has lasted over 12 months since the convict’s arrest and arraignment in June 2021.

The judge, Oluwatoyin Taiwo, convicted Baba Ijesha of indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault and attempted sexual assault.

She sentenced him to 16 years in prison, concurrently.

He was found guilty of four of six offences; two charges attract five years while the remaining two attract three years.

This means that the movie actor will spend five years behind bars.

Mrs Taiwo, however, discharged and acquitted him of counts one and six, which were: sexual assault by penetration and attempted sexual assault by penetration.

Baba Ijesha was found guilty of indecent treatment and sexual assault of a minor between 2013-2014.

The court said the prosecution successfully proved counts two and four; that he indecently placed her on his lap and rubbed his penis on her body.

He was also found guilty of four offences.
