The Lagos State Special Offences Court in the Ikeja area on Monday, adjourned till Tuesday, July 27, 2021, the alleged child molestation case against embattled Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha.
The PUNCH gathered that Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo adjourned the matter till tomorrow after the counsel for comedienne, Adekola Adekanya, also known as Princess, played primary evidence against the embattled actor.
The court sent reporters out before playing the video clip which was said to have captured Baba Ijesha while allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl in the care of Princess.
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 afterwards, especially after her marriage crashed around 2013.
