ALLEGED RAPE: Big Blow For Baba Ijesha As Court Refuses To Grant His Bail Application Pending Appeal

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of Ikeja Special Offences Court on Wednesday, September 21, refused to grant a bail application filed by convicted Nollywood actor, James Olarewaju, alias Baba Ijesha.

It was gathered that the embattled actor had sought bail for an appeal to the five-year conviction for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

Taiwo struck out the bail application on grounds of the actor not meeting exceptional circumstances and criteria.

“The applicant must show special and exceptional circumstances because the term given to him is five years which is to run concurrently.

“There is no evidence that the appeal has been entered and there is no indication before this court that the court will not treat the case expeditiously.
