The defence team of Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James, aka, Baba Ijesha has alleged that the underage daughter of actress and comedienne Damilola Adekoya alias Princess was sexually molested by two other persons.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the lead defence counsel, Mr Babatunde Ogala (SAN), made the allegations on Tuesday during the trial of Baba Ijesha over 6-counts of defilement at an Ikeja Special Offences Court.
While cross-examining Princess, Ogala revealed that the 14-year-old minor was molested by Okele, Princess’s security guard and Princess’s neighbour, Mr Damola Adekola.
When asked who Adekola was, Princess described the man as her neighbour who she also regarded as a brother.
Responding to why Adekola was arrested by the police in April, Princess told the court: “He was arrested because I reported him to the police that in Dec. 2020 he attempted to sexually harass my daughter.
“He didn’t molest her, he harassed her, he put his hand on her lap and told her to put her hands on his penis and she said no and when she refused she screamed.
“I reported it to the police when I found out. This happened in my house around 9.30 pm. I was at a meeting at Sabo, Yaba and my sister was with them and I needed her attention at Sabo.
“I asked them to go to bed and when it was 9.30 pm I asked him (Adekola) to still check up on them to ensure that they were still not out watching cartoons after their bedtime.
“She told me what happened on April 20 or 21 [after Baba Ijesha’s arrest]. That was the only attempted molestation that happened in my house.
“The other one happened when I sent her to his house, he attempted to grab her, she screamed and ran upstairs. This was around late Dec. 2020, I also found out about it at the police station.”
