The Magistrate Court sitting in Yaba has denied the embattled Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, popularly known as Baba Ijesha bail over the sexual assault case against him due to lack of jurisdiction.

It will be recalled that Baba Ijesha had been under media trial since April 22, 2021, when the Lagos State Police Command announced his arrest for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in the care of popular comedienne, Adekola Adekanya, otherwise called Princess.

The Police were unable to institute charges against him in court due to the industrial action embarked on by the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN.

As the judicial workers called off their strike last week and resume activities yesterday, Baba Ijesha was brought to court today for the hearing of the case.

During the trial, Baba Ijesha pleaded not guilty to the charges, while the Chief Magistrate denied him because the state government through the Department of Public Prosecutions, DPP, had filed the same case at the High court.

In a short ruling, the Magistrate noted that Baba Ijesha will remain in detention till he will be tried at the High Court.

The matter was thereafter adjourned till July 21 for further directives.

Baba Ijesha’s colleagues like Yomi Fabiyi and other supporters as well as family members were seen in court in solidarity with him

Fabiyi, while speaking with reporters, said, “I am in court because I believe in the rule of law and I have the right to come to the court and observe the case.

“The young man is my colleague; I cannot deny him at this stage, I am too refined for that.” He said.
