A video of embattled actor Baba Ijesha molesting the 14-year-old girl who is reported to be a foster daughter of Comedienne Princess, has emerged.
In the video, the actor could be seen with the actress in her home having a conversation before she moved out of the apartment, leaving him and the teenage girl.
The duo of Baba Ijesha and the girl who seemed not to be aware the room had been bugged, starting making advances at each other.
There were reports earlier in the week that actor Baba Ijesha would be release from custody on Friday, which of course generated outrage across social media.
So, can we continue to keep him when the offence is subject to bail and when there is no court sitting? That is against his fundamental human rights and the police do not work on sentiments. Directives have been given out for his release on bail.â a senior officer of the Lagos State Police Command had stated.
âThere was no case of defilement, people are just talking out of sentiment. They are not talking from the point of law. We interviewed all parties involved in the case for three hours today (Wednesday),â a statement by the senior officer read.
The officer also stated that the CCTV footage, after being assessed, only showed the actor âtouching the victimâs body but it never showed him having any sexual intercourse with the girl,â which he also confirmed and apologized for. âSo, in law, it is a case of indecent assault and not sexual harassment, and it is open to bail.â
Actress Iyabo Ojo and other people had stormed the police station where he was being held to protest against the planned bail.
