The Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja, on Thursday, adjourned the sexual assault trial of Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James, also known as Baba Ijesha.

This was after Ijesha through his lawyer, Prince Kayode told the court to strike out the statement that he gave at the Sabo Police Station when he was initially arrested.

Baba Ijesha was detained on April 22, 2021, after the Lagos State Police Command announced his arrest for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in the care of comedian, Princess.

The actor is being charged on six counts of sexual assault by penetration, indecent treatment of a child, and sexual assault.

The case was adjourned to December 15th.
