BABA IJESHA TO BE RELEASED TOMORROW BY THE POLICE ON BAIL
Baba Ijesha To Be Released Tomorrow By The Police On Bail…
Reports reaching us say Olarenwaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha is to be released by the police come tomorrow Friday. He would be released because the police dont have enough valid evidence to keep him at the police station until he faces tje court.
A senior police officer of the Panti Police station Lagos, speaking to press men said a directive has been given for the release of Baba Ijesha on the basis that keeping him longer with the police would be violating his human right as members of the Judicial Staff Council Of Nigeria are on strike and courts have ceased from hearings due to the strike. Asides that, recent investigations by the police into the case revealed that Baba Ijesha did not defile the said victim as confirmed by the victim. The CCTV evidence was also acessed by the police and they said he was not seen defiling the victim but touching her body which is another case not the rape case and defilement that is being reported in the media.
As per his being acused of raping the victim when she was 7 years old, the police say the acusation is not enough to keep him in their custody as the case would be declared statute-barred by the court if it is presented to them because it took them too long to take the case to court ( 7 years). Had the case been reported immediately it happened 7 years ago, things would have been different.
However, if the family ando guaedian of the said victim still choose to take the case to court with the CVTV evidence, they can charge Baba Ijesha to court for Indecent Assault which is subject to bail by law.
