Embattled Yoruba actor and comedian, Olanrewaju James, alias Baba Ijesha has dropped plans to file a no-case submission in his trial before an Ikeja Special Offences over allegations of r*p*.

When a no-case submission is made, it means that the defendant is asking the court for an acquittal without it having to present a defence.

Baba Ijesha is charged with six counts of indecent treatment of a child, s*x*al ass*ult, attempted s*xu*l ass*ult by penetration and s*xu*l assault by penetration.

NAN reports that during proceedings on December 15, 2021, the defence counsel, Kayode Olabiran informed the court that the defendant had no case to answer and intends to file a no-case submission at the next court date.

However, during Tuesday proceedings, A. O. Alo, a defence counsel, informed the court that the defence team had made a change of plans after a review of the case with the defendant.

“The defendant after the review has decided to put in his defence and we have decided not to file the no-case submission again.

“Given this, we will be humbly praying that the court should give us a short adjournment,” he said.

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo adjourned the case until February 17 and 18.
