Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, a.k.a Baba Ijesha has alleged that popular comedienne, Adekanya, also known as Princess tried several times to seduce him.
While speaking with correspondent at the magistrates’ court in Lagos State on Wednesday, Ayeni disclosed after the court declined granting bail application brought before Baba Ijesha.
The Police has kept in their custody Baba Ijesha since April 22, 2021 as a result of sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl in the care of Princess.

Addressing journalists after Baba Ijesha was taken back to the State Criminal Investigation Department in the Panti area of the state, Ayeni, who claimed to be the actor’s niece, said the allegations filed against him were baseless.
She said, “My name is Ewatomilola Ayeni and the person in question is my elder brother; I am a niece to Baba Ijesha.
“If indeed Ijesha did what he was accused of indeed, his mother-in-law is here and she won’t support him if indeed he is guilty of the offence.
“Everyone is shouting, ‘defilement’ but if they know what happened seven years ago…
“Has Princess herself revealed the number of times she seduced Ijesha? Ijesha cannot fight but we will fight for him.
“There were times that Princess called Ijesha to come over to her place, that she has preparedOfadastew, knowing full well that he has a wife, even though she is not in Nigeria.”
“You claim to be friend to somebody and you are also the enemy. Why are you a friend enemy to him?” she queried.
Ayeni further said Baba Ijesha is not a pedophile, saying, “I have lived with him all my life and he never abused me. They want to tarnish his image because of his fame.”
“The government should ensure that the innocent does not die in the place of the guilty because anyone who hears one side of the matter without hearing the other side is evil, because he (Baba Ijesha) knows nothing about this case,” she concluded.
