More trouble for Baba Ijesha as another girl alleges defilement

Baba Ijesha, the embattled Yoruba actor, has been hit with a fresh child defilement allegation.
According to report, Wahab Kareem (ASP), a Lagos police operative, testified before an Ikeja special offences court on Friday.
Baba Ijesha has been in a legal tussle since he was accused of assaulting a 14-year-old minor when she was 7.
The actor is already facing a six-count charge bordering on the indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, attempted sexual assault by penetration, and sexual assault by penetration.
Kareem, attached to the state criminal investigation department (SCID), Yaba, was the fifth prosecution witness in Baba Ijesha’s trial for the defilement of the minor.
Led in evidence by Yusuf Sule, state counsel, he said another girl alleged that she was assaulted by the defendant.
Following the testimony, the statement of Jameel, Baba Ijesha’s former landlord, was admitted in evidence.
A video recording of Baba Ijesha at the SCID allegedly admitting to sexually assaulting the foster daughter of Damilola Adekoya, comedienne, was also played.
Oluwatoyin Taiwo, the judge, adjourned the case until November 12 for the continuation of the trial.
