The Lago State police command has promptly arrested popular Nigerian actor and comedian, Olanrewaju Omiyinka otherwise known as Baba Ijesha, for raping a 13-year-old girl.
The mother of the victim (name withheld) had been suspecting that Mr. Olanrewaju had been sneaking into her apartment to rape her daughter. She had interrogated her daughter but she has been afraid to speak up. So the deeply concerned mother installed closed circuit television (CCTV) camera in her home.
On that fateful day, Baba Ijesha had sneaked into the apartment as usual while the woman was away and pounced on his victim.
The woman who monitors the camera on her phone had seen what was happening and rushed home. She got there in time to catch the actor pants down sexually molesting her underaged daughter.
Baba Ijesha had taken the girl to the kitchen where her mother caught him in the act. The woman broke down in tears and has since been inconsolable.
A statement released by the Panti Police Station, Lagos, the police station handling the case, shows that Baba Ijesha has been raping the girl since she was 7 and has continued to do so for 7 years.
