Recall that Baba Ijesha was on April 20 arrested after he confessed to molesting the teenager and Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed that the actor sexually assaulted the teenager when she was just seven-year-old.
According to police, a CCTV footage showed that the Yoruba actor also recently sexually molested the young child in the house of Princess.
Following this, the entertainment industry was divided over if he is guilty of the offence or not and some demanded for the release of the footage to truly ascertain if he carried out the act as claimed.
Many Nigerians including celebrities like Iyabo Ojo, who has been vocal about the condemning Baba Ijesha, slammed those asking for the video.
However, in latest development, the CCTV footage was obtained by ThePunch and has now been released for public viewing.
Here is an analysis of the video;
In the video, as seen by MDB, Princess was seen leaving her apartment with three others, leaving Baba Ijesha and the victim in the parlour to see off the guests. After the comedienne left the apartment, Baba Ijesha was shown by the footage searching the rooms.
Baba Ijesha who seemed not to be aware the room had been bugged started making advances at the girl immediately Princess left the house.
The close-circuit Television footage showed the Nollywood actor kissing and fondling sensitive parts of the body of the 14-year-old girl in the care of Princess.
While engaging in the act, was also seen licking the fingers on the left hand of the victim and caressing the minor’s legs and thighs with his left hand.
In an apparent effort to sexually arouse the minor, Baba Ijesha was seen lifting the victim’s dress as he caressed the minor’s body.
The minor was dressed in a sleeveless gown as she sat on a sofa in Princess’s residence. Baba Ijesha wore a white shirt, a pair of blue jeans and a hat.
Shortly after Baba Ijesha stepped out, the actor came back in and sat beside the victim on the same sofa, was seen using his hand to caress the victim’s left arm.
Some minutes later, Baba Ijesha kissed the minor’s arm, hugged and caressed her body as they sat on the sofa.
However, the victim, who was uncomfortable by Baba Ijesha’s advances, quickly disentangled herself from the actor’s grip.
Baba Ijesha was again seen in the footage, standing with the victim in the parlour, hugging the minor and using his two hands to caress the victim’s buttocks.
The victim, however, disengaged herself from Baba Ijesha, who clung to her. Afterwards, Baba Ijesha was seen using both hands to caress the minor’s head.
The footage also showed him bending the victim to a corner on the sofa and kissing the minor. Again, the 14-year-old girl disengaged herself from Baba Ijesha’s grip.
MDB observed that the sexual advances were instigated by the thespian. Also, background voices of people monitoring the situation in the parlour were heard in the footage.
In addition, from the footage assessed by MDB, there was no part of the sexual assault that showed Baba Ijesha penetrating the victim.
