Sexual Assault: Baba Ijesha undergoes medical checkup
INSIDEMAINLAND – Underfire Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju Omiyinka better known as Baba Ijesha, has undergone an emergency medical checkup at an undisclosed hospital in Lagos.
This was made known in a clip shared on Instagram on Sunday by his close associate Yomi Fabiyi.
Mr. Fabiyi captioned the video, “Everyone has a right to life” and prayed for the ” healing hand of God” on his colleague.
In the video, Baba Ijesha who was shirtless could be seen being examined by a man believed to be a doctor.
PREMIUM TIMES reports that it isn’t clear if the embattled actor has perfected his bail conditions as his lawyers and Fabiyi refused to share details.
“He is going for some test and that will determine other things,” Fabiyi said.
In the second video posted by Fabiyi, the comic actor could also be heard making some health complaints to a medical practitioner.
He complained of pains owing to alleged jungle justice meted out on him by Nigerian comedienne, Princess, after he was allegedly caught in the act.
The actor is being accused of raping a minor (when she was 7-year-old) who was kept in her care.
He is under investigation by the Lagos State police command on allegations of rape and has been in police detention since April 22 for the alleged offence.
He said he stooled and coughed blood for five days while he was in detention.
“They used boot to hit me here (he pointed to his stomach area) then here particularly (pointed to his head) they hit me several times and it is always aching me like, I won’t be able to control myself, it will just come like a sharp pain, and draw my eyes,” he said.
“I feel weak every time. Five days after I arrived at the cell, I became very sick. I was rushed to a hospital,” he said.
