Lagos DPP reveals why Baba Ijesha won’t be released on bail

The Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), Lagos State Ministry of Justice, has revealed the reason why Olanrewaju James, popularly known as, “Baba Ijesha” won’t be released on bail.

DPP stalled any possibility of releasing Baba Ijesha on bail stating that he has criminal charges to answer.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, yesterday said that the DPP advised the police to hold on to Baba Ijesha, because the case against him, according to legal advice, is sexual assault by penetration, pending when he would be charged to court.

Adejobi said “Invariably sexual assault is more like defilement too, considering the age of the victim,” he said.

“So, Baba Ijesha is being kept with the police not within our own power, but because of the legal advice from the DPP. If the DPP had advised us to release Baba Ijesha, we would have released him.”

“After the DPP investigated the case file, the police advised us not to release Baba Ijesha on bail pending when he will be charged to court.

“The DPP said there are a number of cases Baba Ijesha will be charged for, particularly sexual assault by penetration, which is a serious offense.”
