Adesina Ademola Ogunlana, counsel to embattled actor, Olanrewaju James, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, has thrown more light into how the actor accused of defiling the 14-year-old foster daughter of comedienne, Princess, was granted bail by a Magistrate.
In a video posted online, Ogunlana said ;
''Our client that has been in detention for more than 30 days has been granted bail at the facility of his detention. The magistrate that granted him bail is Chief Magistrate Toyin of the Lagos state Judiciary.
The Chief Magistrate in partnership with the Ministry of Justice in partnership with a private organization, Police Decongestion Scheme led by a former chairman of the NBA in Ikorodu, Bayo Akinlade, visited Panti and under the decongestion scheme, visited that facility and met Baba Ijesha.
Something was curious there. His name was not even entered as very much reliably leant. The Chief Magistrate being bold and experienced, demanded to see him and he was brought to see the team. He came towards them limping and as we have described before, he was emaciated and bail was granted to him summarily by the Chief Magistrate and this is very very commendable.''
Ogunlana said the bail was granted ''essentially on health grounds'' and that the Magistrate said the offense is bailable.
''The conditions of bail are that Baba Ijesha must have two sureties. One of the sureties must be a level 10 officer, a civil servant. The other one should be a blood relation of the thespian.
The bail is put as N500, 000 in large sum. It's not security. It is just a bond that if he should run away, the sureties will pay that. We are very sure he will not run away. The verification is to be done by the OC Legal of the SCID Panti.''
Speaking further, Ogunlana said this is very good news as it is a victory for everyone.
''It is not a victory for Baba Ijesha alone. It is for everybody. Rights must be respected. Laws must be respected. The idea of mob lynching, the idea of lopsided action when it comes to rights and priviledges of fellow citizens should be decried.
I want to appreciate Chief Magistrate Toyin for the courage, for doing the right thing. For stepping into this matter. You remember the police had pandered to public opinion of some activist who were sayig he should never be released and hung it on the neck of JUSUN strike that they would have charged the man to court and were even talking about the Attorney General of Lagos state which with due respect to him, I wonder in the history of defilement, how can somebody who is not biased, who is not malicious say a prima facie case of defilement has been disclosed upon the facts of this case? We will look into that and take that up. Baba Ijesha's rights has been brazenly brutalised'' he said
''As far as we are concerned, both the police and the Ministry of Justice are to be indicted for the unnecessary brutalization of Baba Ijesha's rights. If a person is entitled, you give him his entitlement.''
SmartProf: Pls don't grant him any bail for now, even if he tells u guys he wants to use the time to contact Gucci to make his prisoner uniform...his likely surety (HushMagu) is also being detained for corruption allegations here in Naija.
MrMcJay: @Omobone, thanks for bringing this info to the house and thanks to Leadway for separating the wheat from the chaff.
There is a particular farm on that makes so much noise about being on Leadway list. Ask them for insurance details, they would never give you. Inspection nko? No. They were opening various farms and selling chicken, turkey, goat, pig and fish farm sponsorships.
Well, according to this new Leadway info, the only things that Agritech company insured were just 76 pigs. No chickens, no turkey, no goats, nothing.

Are you not the one who was dealt with by a lady and her boyfriend? The problem is with people like you who are dull but think themselves intelligent. I can tell you that the average woman you see on the street has more brains than you.
MASTERCHIEF0847: Those who provided false information should be punished. This is not government's fault but the airline and the organizer of the show.
Blaming the government is now the favorite past time for some people. Read the comments below and see blockheads trying to pin this on the government when clearly the organizers and the airline provided false information on purpose to the government yet it's okay to put the blame on the government instead of those who provided false information using the name of a federal judge. Sentiments and ethnic bigotry don finish some people brain. This generation will be worse than these old thieves we have now as leaders.
benedictuyi: Letsfarm just paid. Payout was due on Monday, came 2 days early.
Way to go!
I hope they've paid out everyone due?
They sent out info on new farms going live by 10AM today. there's quite a few of them. I find it a little worrisome when you have more than 3 farming options opening at the same time for a growing concern.
