Lagos State Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court sitting in Ikeja has convicted Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James alias Baba Ijesha, of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old minor.

In a judgment that lasted two hours, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo also convicted Baba Ijesha of indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, and attempted sexual assault.

The judge, however, discharged and acquitted him of counts 1 and 6, which were: sexual assault by penetration and attempted sexual assault by penetration.

Reacting to the judgement, Actor Yomi Fabiyi has mulled appeal of the sentencing of the embattled Baba Ijesha.

Fabiyi in an interview with Vanguard stated that Baba Ijesha still has ample opportunities to challenge the ruling of the court until he has exhausted all his limits.
