An Ikeja Special Offences Court has adjourned the trial of Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James, better known as Baba Ijesha to September 27. He was charged with alleged defilement.
The trial which was scheduled to continue on Wednesday, did not hold due to the absence of the presiding judge, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo.
Justice Taiwo is currently attending a Judges’ Retreat alongside other members of the Lagos State judiciary.
The registrars at her court, however, informed the correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria that the new trial date has been communicated to all the parties to the suit.
Baba Ijesha who was arraigned on June 24 is charged with six counts bordering on defilement of a minor.
The prosecution, led by Mrs Olayinka Adeyemi, the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), has so far presented two witnesses for the prosecution.
