The Lagos State Special Offences Court has granted embattled Nollywood actor, Baba Ijesha, bail in the sum of two million naira.
Delivering a ruling on his bail application this afternoon, the presiding judge, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, ordered that the actor be released on bail while the trial continues. The judge ruled that the actor must provide the amount alongside two sureties, one of which must be a legal practitioner and the second a family relation.
The judge, however, said that the actor must perfect the bail terms and conditions within the next seven days.
She said the trial would begin on July 26 through 27 and 28 respectively.
Baba Ijesha is being tried for the alleged sexual defilement of the foster daughter of popular comedienne, Princess.
