On Thursday, July 14, 2022, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court sentenced the disgraced star to jail.

Justice Taiwo gave the ruling, noting that the prosecution had not proven the defendant’s guilt of all the accusations against him beyond a reasonable doubt.

On two of the six charges brought against the defendant, she did, however, find him guilty.

After the Lagos State Police Command confirmed his arrest for allegedly sexually abusing a 14-year-old child under Princess’ care, Baba Ijesha was taken into custody on April 22, 2021.

Numerous pieces of evidence were presented to the court regarding the actor’s sexual assault of the young kid, making this case one of the most well-publicized celebrity court cases in Nigerian history.

Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode, a child forensic specialist, submitted a forensic report at the Special Offenses Court in Ikeja.

Ajayi-Kayode claims the clinical report on the kid revealed Baba Ijesha reportedly had intercourse with the girl when she was 7 on two separate occasions and one of those times involved inserting his vehicle key into her vagina.

The Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions, which brought the accusations against the actor, said that the offenses violated Sections 135, 137, 261, 202, 262, and 263 of the Lagos State Criminal Law 2015, which mandates life imprisonment for offenders.

Baba Ijesha pled not guilty to all charges.
