Actor Baba Ijesha Appeals Conviction



Popular Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James, famously known as Baba Ijesha, has asked the Court of Appeal, Lagos Division, to set aside his conviction by a Lagos State High Court over the sexual assault of a minor.

It would be recalled that Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo (retd.) of the Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court, on July 14, 2022, sentenced Baba Ijesha to five years imprisonment over the sexual assault of a minor.

Howwver, Baba Ijesha approached the appeal court to challenge his five-year jail term.

Through his counsel Kayode Olabiran, Baba Ijesha on Tuesday, told the appeal court that his client was set up and that he acted according to a script that he was invited to act on by his colleague.

“The Appellant was set up. The Appellant is an actor. He acted in a script that he was invited to act by his colleague (PW1), Damilola Adekoya,” he said.

At the time of filing this report, no official date fixed for hearing of the case.
