Deji Aderemi, a.k.a. Baba Olofa Ina, a veteran actor, has launched an attack on Nollywood actresses and the accusers of Baba Ijesha, actual name Olarenwaju Oyiminka.
The actor was granted N2 million bail by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja on Tuesday.
Baba Ijesha must also provide two sureties, one of whom must be a blood related and the other a lawyer.
The actress is facing a six-count charge that includes indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, and sexual assault by penetration.
Olofa Ina, speaking to reporters on Thursday, claimed that Baba Ijesha was the target of a planned scheme.
”I’m in court because they said somebody slept with someone. This is a normal thing in our industry. If this person has done something wrong, they should reprimand him rather than false accusations.
“There is no successful actress that would say that she has not been slept with in the industry before. They now planned for him.
“I know it will never be well with them. They turned another person’s child into a prisoner. Because of what? They laid a false allegation against him.
“These are the same people that he has eaten with before. How come they are now laying such an allegation on him?
”I called Iyabo Ojo and said I want her to forget the case. Iyabo asked if I would like such a thing to happen to my daughter and she hung up.”
The popular Yoruba actor added that Damiloa Adekoya (Princess), who first accused Baba Ijesha publicly, hasn’t been vocal like Iyabo Ojo.
