According to PM News, Adesina Ogunlana, the lawyer to Nollywood actor Olanrewaju James Omiyinka popularly known as Baba Ijesha has said his client is traumatised in police detention.
In a letter addressed to the Lagos police commissioner, Mr. Ogunlana said his client should be released on bail, adding Baba Ijesha’s colleague Yomi Fabiyi is ready to stand surety for him.
Baba Ijesha has been in police custody since his arrest in April for allegedly defiling the 14-year-old foster child of a popular comedian Princess.
Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi and some others have protested against the continuous detention of the actor, claiming that it was a bailable offense.
Lagos police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Friday said the decision to hold on to Baba Ijesha was based on the criminal charges against him.
