Alleged Defilement: Lagos State closes case against actor Baba Ijesha

The Lagos State government has closed its case against Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James, better known as Baba Ijesha, who is facing trial over allegations of defilement. (Read More Here).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mrs Olayinka Adeyemi, the Lagos State Director of the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), made this known on Wednesday after the cross-examination of the sixth prosecution witness by the defence.

Following the DPP’s statement, the defence counsel, Mr Kayode Olabiran, announced to the court that the defendant intended to file a no-case submission.

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo said, “We will take the no-case submission in the New Year; the court is rounding up.”

Earlier, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo said Baba Ijesha’s confessional statement to the police was admissible in evidence. She ruled that there was no evidence before the court, which proved that the embattled Nollywood actor was tortured into making the statement to the police.

“Sitting on the floor does not vitiate the confessional statement. The statement is found to be relevant and admissible,” the judge said.
