The Lagos state commissioner of police, Hakeem Odumosu, has stated that the alleged crime committed by Yoruba actor Olarenwaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha is bailable.
The state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, while confirming that the actor was still in detention at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) at Panti, Yaba, admitted that his alleged offence was a bailable offence since it’s not defilement but sexual assault.
Odumosu said his release can only happen based on legal advice from the state Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
He said the case file of the popular actor has already been sent to the office of the Attorney General of Lagos State and DPP for legal advice.
Baba Ijesha was arrested for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl for over 7 years, as many celebrities took to social media to slam him.
