by Oluwamuyiwa Oyedele

Jailed Nollywood actor Olanrewaju James aka Baba Ijesha recently has asked an Ikeja Domestic and Sexual Violence Court to grant him post-conviction bail pending the hearing and determination of his appeal before the Lagos Division of the Court of Appeal.

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo in July sentenced Baba Ijesha to 16- year imprisonment for child defilement.

He was convicted of four out of six-count charges brought against him by the Lagos State Government.

He was jailed for child defilement, indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault and attempted sexual assault by penetration.

The convict is serving a five-year concurrent jail terms by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court.
