Babatunde Ogala, the counsel for embattled Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha, has said the video footage which allegedly captured him molesting a 14-year-old girl was scripted.
Ogala, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, stated this at the Lagos State Special Offences Court on Tuesday during the cross-examination of comedienne, Damilola Adekoya, aka Princess.
Baba Ijesha is facing six counts of rape, sexual assault and abuse of a minor.
During the cross-examination, the defence team, led by Ogala and Dada Awosika, confronted Princess with a report she made at a police station accusing one of her neighbours, Damola Adekola, of sexually harassing her daughter.
Princess then stated that on two occasions, the minor was harassed by the neighbour in December 2020, but she only found out in April 2021, when Baba Ijesha’s case was at the police station.
Responding to questions asked by Ogala, Princess said, “Damola Adekola is my neighbour. I took him as a younger brother because his mom is late.
“He was arrested because he tried to harass the minor in December. He put his hands on her laps and asked her to touch his private parts. This happened around 9.30pm in my flat when I was attending a meeting at Sabo.
“On two occasions, my foster daughter was almost molested by the neighbour, but she screamed.”
She also affirmed that she did not formally report the matter to the police until April 20, 2021.
Awosika then said the defendant did not touch the minor sexually and the CCTV footage was scripted.
He said, “You will observe that when you see the CCTV footage being streamed, the defendant did not at any time move his hand towards any sensitive part of your daughter’s body.”
The counsel also queried why there was no audio in the footage to reveal the instructions Princess allegedly gave to her foster daughter.
Awosika then asked why Princess, who was aware of an earlier allegation of molestation against the defendant, would leave the minor with him, adding that as part of the script, Princess hid under the stairs and monitored the activities of Baba Ijesha and her foster daughter with a smartphone.
In response, Princess said, “The initial plan was for myself, my mum and foster daughter to confront him, but we felt he could become violent if we confronted him, and I decided to set up the CCTV camera that day. I did not believe Baba Ijesha would repeat the action now that she is grown.”
After the cross-examination, journalists and members of the public were ordered out of the court to allow the victim give her testimony.
Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo subsequently adjourned the case till August 11, 2021.

You Don’t Need to Beat a Woman to Punish Her, Just Do These Three Things
No matter how much a man and a woman love themselves, there is still a possibility of having misunderstandings.
In fact, what keeps most relationships and marriages together is the ability to settle problems not really because there are no problems.
Women are very dramatic creatures, if you’re not creatively smart as a guy, they can make you move mad to the extent that you’d want to tear them slap. Yes! Women can be that annoying and provocative.
In today’s world, only weak and dumb men hit their women. Instead of beating a woman, there are other ways you can punish her and it will even get to her more than using violence.
Below Are The Ways You Can Punish You Woman Without Hitting Her:-
1. Taking Away Your Attention
Firstly, what is attention, being attentive is simply our way to show our partner we care and make them feel important and special, when a man doesn’t create time for their woman it hurts them.
If you’re not been caring to them anymore, or you stop giving them attention all of a sudden.
These things hurt most women and in most cases, they are the ones who will do everything to get your attention back.
2. Deny Her Some Things
This is one of the ways you can punish a woman. Denying her certain things that you normally give her for her own benefit will make her realize her mistakes.
You can decide not to give her money to do her own hair or to buy cloth, depending on what she asked you or what you normally do for her.
This is not saying that you should deny your responsibility as a man. Ensure you provide food for the family and every other thing you are expected to do as a married man.
3. Deny Her Intimacy
In any relationship, intimacy is what keeps the relationship alive. Denying your woman intimacy is another way of letting your woman know what she did was wrong.
If she really wants to be intimate with you, she will apologize and you guys will have apology sex.
These methods are more preferable when you want to punish a woman that offended you. Domestic violence is a crime against womanhood and humanity.
Don’t lay your hands on a woman when you have problems, instead use any of these methods.
Aside from all these, the best way of settling a misunderstanding is through discussion.
If your woman does something that you don’t like, sit her down and tell her what she did you don’t like it instead of you laying your hands on her.
