Actor Olanrewaju Omiyinka, AKA Baba Ijesha who was arrested for allegations of molesting a minor may be released from custody on friday, April 30.
A police source who spoke with Punch said the ongoing strike action by members of the judicial staff union of Nigeria has prevented courts in the state from sitting and this has prevented the police from arranging the suspect. The Police source said the suspect Baba Ijesha could not be detained indefinitely without trial.
The source added that the investigation into the case shows the actor didn’t defile the victim, adding that when she was questioned, the victim confirmed the same.
The senior police officer said, “There was no case of defilement, people are just talking out of sentiment. They are not tlaking from the point of law. We interviewed all parties involved in the case fro three hours today.
The mother complained that her child was at the age of 7 when she was defiled and the child pointed out Baba Ijesha for the act. But the case was not reported until she was 14 year of age and under the law, the case has become statute-barred. The CCTV footage has been assessed and nowhere was it captured that the suspect defiled her. It only showed him touching the victim’s body but it never showed him having any sexual intercourse with the girl which the girl confirmed the same thing
The case is an indecent assault which can’t be count worthy of sexual harassment, and it is open to bail.
