The prosecution team of the Lagos State Government on Friday told an Ikeja Special Offences Court that one of the witnesses set to testify against Nollywood actor Olanrewaju James alias Baba Ijesha is scared to testify in court.

The state counsel, Mr Yusuf Sule, made the disclosure on Friday while explaining the absence of two witnesses slated to testify against the actor in his ongoing trial for sexual assault, NAN reports.

“My lord, the first witness who is a police officer could not come to court today because he has been transferred and needs to get permission from where he was posted to appear here.

“The second witness could not come to court because he is jittery, he is scared to come to court.

“My lord, we will ensure that all the witnesses are in court by next Friday,” the prosecutor mentioned.

Following the submission, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo adjourned the case until November 19 for the continuation of trial.

Baba Ijesha is facing a six-count charge bordering on the indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, attempted sexual assault by penetration and sexual assault by penetration.

The alleged offences contravene Sections 135, 259, 262, 263 and 262 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

About five witnesses including the alleged victim and her foster mother, actress and comedienne Damilola Adekoya alias Princess have testified so far for the prosecution.

The others are a child expert, Mrs Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode; a medical doctor, Dr Aniekan Makanjuola; and a police officer, ASP Wahab Kareem.
