Princess and Baba Ijesha

The sexual harassment of a minor case against Nollywood actor, Olarewaju James, popularly called Baba Ijesha, took a new twist on Tuesday as his defence team revealed two other persons have molested the minor.

Baba Ijesha is facing a six-count charge of defilement after actress and comedienne, Damilola Adekoya, popularly known as Princess, alleged that he sexually molested her daughter.

Baba Ijesha’s lead defence counsel, Mr Babatunde Ogala (SAN), while cross-examining Princess said that the 14-year-old minor was molested by Mr Damola Adekola, Princess’s neighbour and Okele, Princess’s security guard.

When asked who Adekola was, Princess described him as her neighbour who she also regarded as a brother. She said that they also ran a haulage business together.

Responding to why Adekola was arrested by the police in April, Princess said: “He was arrested because I reported him to the police that in December 2020 he attempted to sexually harass my daughter.

“He did not molest her, he harassed her he put his hand on her laps and told her to put her hands on his penis. When she refused she screamed.

“I reported to the police when I found out. This happened in my house around 9.30 p.m in my house. I was at a meeting at Sabo, Yaba and my sister was with them and I needed her attention at Sabo.

“I asked them to go to bed and when it was 9.30 p.m. I asked him (Adekola) to still check up on them to ensure that they are still out watching cartoons after their bedtime.

According to Princess, the minor told her about what happened after Baba Ijesha was arrested.

“She told me what happened on April 20 or 21 (after Baba Ijesha’s arrest). That was the only attempted molestation that happened in my house.

“The other one happened when I sent her to his (Adekola’s) house, he attempted to grab her, she screamed and ran upstairs. This was around late December 2020, I also found about it at the police station,” she said.

The counsel however asked why Princess reported the case “a week after Baba Ijesha was arrested”; she replied ” I can’t remember”.

On Okele the security guard, Princess said that he did not molest her daughter but that he exposed himself indecently to the child.

She said that the security guard also had a drinking habit and that she had fired him before the revelations.
