Baba Ijesha who arrested in April for allegedly sexually molesting a minor appeared in court for the first time on Wednesday, June 16th.
Giving update on the case via his Instagram page, Yomi stated that the police has no evidence against Baba Ijesha to prove that he defiled the young girl, although an individual wants defilement included into the charges against the actor.
According to Yomi, the victim also insists that Baba Ijesha never had canal knowledge of her.
“That is the true position and update. Someone want DEFILEMENT included into the charges against Baba Ijesha by force by fire despite the fact the SET UP failed to go beyond sexual assault.
Baba Ijesha never applied any force that may exhibit any intention to rape. Yet they want a past seven years purported event based on oral evidence with no single authentic proof added to the charges which will enable a HIGH COURT have jurisdiction to work on the case. Bail is not guilty or innocent verdict.
I am convinced some people outside those we know are the ones behind the case, they and their agents have problem with bail.
By his grace, amicable solution will be found. I will stand by fair trail, human rights, justice and rule of law to the end. No backing down. E ma fhor. STAND BY WHAT IS RIGHT.”
Speaking further the actor also called for the prosecution of the adults who used the young girl as bait to catch Baba Ijesha on camera, he averred that the adults put the minor in a lot of risk.
