An Ikeja special sexual offences Court has on Thursday granted #2 million bail to popular nollywood actor, Omiyinka Olanrewaju popularly known as Baba Ijesha .

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo granted him bail after taking submissions from prosecution and defence in the matter.

Taiwo said bail is a constitutional right and not a discretionary right.

Baba Ijesha has been in custody since April 22, 2021 over alleged sexual defilement of a minor.

The actor was first granted bail on May 17 — after spending about 25 days in police detention — by magistrates in charge of prison decongestion.

But Baba Ijesha was remanded in police custody despite the bail.
