Breaking: Court Sentences Nollywood Actor, Baba Ijesha to 16 Years Imprisonment over Sexual assault

Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, was on Thursday jailed by a Court to 16 years in imprisonment for child defilement.

Baba Ijesha was charged with a six-count charge of child defilement that include indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, attempted sexual assault by penetration, and sexual assault by penetration.

His sentence was delivered by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court.

The offences contravened Section 135, 137, 261, 202, 262 and 263 of the Lagos State Criminal Law 2015, which stipulates life imprisonment for offenders.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Taiwo said that the prosecution failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty of all the charges against him.
