Breaking: Court Sentences Actor, Baba Ijesha, 16 Years In Jail
— Says Prosecution Fails To Prove All the Six Count Charges Beyond Reasonable Doubt
An Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court, presided over by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, today, Thursday, July 14, 2022, sentenced actor Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha, to 16 years imprisonment.
Baba Ijesha is facing six counts charge of “child defilement, which include indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, attempted sexual assault by penetration and sexual assault by penetration.”
The offences contravene Section 135, 137, 261, 202, 262 and 263 of the Lagos State Criminal Law 2015, which stipulates life imprisonment for offenders.
But while delivering the judgement, Justice Taiwo said the prosecution failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty of all the charges against him.
She only found the defendant guilty of two of the six counts against him and therefore gave the actor 16 years jail sentence.
