The Lagos state commissioner of police, Hakeem Odumosu has revealed that Baba Ijesha is eligible for bail despite being accused of rape.
Baba Ijesha was arrested for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl for over 7 years, as many celebrities took to social media to slam him.
Comedienne Princess came out to state that her foster child was the girl actor Baba Ijesha sexually assaulted.
Taking to Instagram, the entertainer revealed that after the crash of her marriage, some parents allowed their children, six in number, to come and live with her so she wouldn’t be lonely. She said while she was harbouring the six children, she was also rendering help to Baba Ijesha.
Princess alleged it was during one of his visits that he molested one of three girls living with her.
She said the defilement had an adverse effect on the child as she began to decline academically and otherwise.
The state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, while confirming that the actor was still in detention at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) at Panti, Yaba, admitted that his alleged offence was a bailable offence since it’s not defilement but sexual assault.
Odumosu said his release can only happen based on legal advice from the state Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
