The source added that investigation into the case shows the actor did not defile the victim, adding that when she was questioned, the victim confirmed the same.

The senior police officer stated;

There was no case of defilement, people are just talking out of sentiment. They are not talking from the point of law. We interviewed all parties involved in the case for three hours today (Wednesday).

The mother complained that her child was at the age of seven when she was defiled and the child pointed at Baba Ijesha. But the case was not reported until she was 14 years and under the law, the case has become statute-barred.

The source added that despite granting Omiyinka bail, investigation would continue, adding that the command had also sought legal opinion from the state Ministry of Justice.

However, the position of the police has angered many Nigerians, including Iyabo Ojo, who has been very vocal about demanding for justice for the young child.

Reacting to the bail plan, the actress via her Instagram page vowed to counter every attempt to grant bail to Baba Ijesha, saying;

This live video is for the people in charge of this case. We are going to say no to molestation and yes I stand to use one of my own as a scape goat. If they release Baba Ijesha, we are going to rearrest him and this will no longer be a state thing, it will now become Federal.
