Embattled Yoruba actor Olanrewaju James popularly known as Baba Ijesha, who is accused of molesting a 14-year-old minor (the foster daughter of comedienne Princess), has been granted bail.
Baba Ijesha was granted bail yesterday, May 17, on health grounds by a magistrate set up at the State Criminal Investigation Department SCID Panti to review some cases in a bid to decongest the police facility.
However the actor is yet to be released from detention as his Adesina Ogunlana, is working towards perfecting his bail condition which includes that he must have two sureties.
One other condition that must be fulfilled before his bail is that one of the sureties must be a Level 10 Public officer while the second surety must be a relation of the actor. The bail is put at N500, 000 in bond.
The actor who has been in police custody since April is yet to be charged to court due to the industrial strike by the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).
