An Ikeja Special Offences Court convicted Olanrewaju James, alias Baba Ijesha, of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old minor on Thursday.

Since his arrest and arraignment in June 2021, Baba Ijesha’s rape trial has lasted more than a year.

Baba Ijesha has been embroiled in a tumultuous rape trial since April 22, 2022, for allegedly sexually assaulting Princess’ 14-year-old foster daughter.

In a two-hour ruling on Thursday, Judge Oluwatoyin Taiwo found Baba Ijesha guilty of indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, and attempted sexual assault.

He was sentenced to 16 years in prison concurrently by the judge.

He was found guilty of four of six charges; two of the charges carry a five-year sentence, while the other two carry a three-year sentence.

His 16-year prison sentence will run concurrently. This means that the actor will be imprisoned for five years.

Mrs Taiwo, on the other hand, discharged and acquitted him of counts one and six, which were sexual assault by penetration and attempted sexual assault by penetration, respectively.

Between 2013 and 2014, Baba Ijesha was found guilty of indecent treatment and sexual assault on a minor.

The prosecution successfully proved counts two and four, that he indecently placed her on his lap and rubbed his penis on her body, according to the court.

He was also convicted of four other offenses.

Seven years later, he was accused of indecently touching the same minor and sexually assaulting her by rubbing her body and sucking her fingers.

However, the judge found him not guilty of count one, in which he is accused of sexually assaulting the minor with his car key seven years ago.

In addition, he was found not guilty of count 6, in which he was accused of attempted sexual assault by penetration during another encounter with the minor in April 2021.
