Damilola Adekoya, Nollywood actress better known as Comedian Princess, has narrated how she caught Baba Ijesha allegedly defiling her 14-year-old foster child in her house.


The entertainer brought the revelation to light in an Instagram video wherein she bared lurid details of the incident and how the movie star was arrested.

TheCable Lifestyle had reported how the 48-year-old actor, whose real name is Olarenwaju James, was apprehended for allegedly defiling the minor.

According to Princess, the teenager was among six children — three boys and girls — put in her care some years ago after she had some challenges in her marriage which resulted in the death of her own baby.


She explained that the parents of the children had done that out of compassion so she would not feel lonely.

Princess said while taking care of the children, Baba Ijesha had approached her for help as he was also battling some difficulties at the time.

She said he had visited her house at a point to seek for help and in the process defiled the girl who was seven-year-old at the time.


The comedienne said she was not aware of the development when it happened but noticed something was wrong with the girl as she started performing poorly in school.

She explained that about seven years later, the girl eventually revealed what transpired after several pleas.

Princess said she thereafter invited Baba Ijesha to her house to confront him with what the girl told her by pretending that she needed his service for a movie.

The entertainer said she had installed closed circuit camera television (CCTV) in the house and upon his arrival, she had pretended to be going out thereby leaving him and the 14-year-old girl alone.


Princess said she had invited the police after the actor allegedly attempted to molest the girl again. The entertainer said when she confronted him, he allegedly confessed to committing the act while blaming it on the “devil”.

She, however, dismissed claims that the movie star defiled the minor for seven years, noting that it happened only twice before the one resulting in his eventual arrest.

“After seven years, the girl told me and someone else what Baba Ijesha did to her after she saw him in a movie. I called him for a meeting in the house where I set up a CCTV camera where he was captured trying to molest the girl again,” she said.

“I left the house and told him to relax I’ll be back soon, immediately I left he searched my house to see if anyone was in aside the girl and later proceeded to defile her.


“I can’t even disclose the things he did while I was monitoring on my phone but immediately I saw her stand up to the kitchen where there was no camera I and the police entered the house and arrested him.”

Princess enjoined parents whose wards have also been allegedly molested by the actor to open up.

She also tackled those demanding the release of the footage of the incident as evidence, questioning the rationality behind such.

In the same vein, she called out those claiming she was attempting to tarnish the movie star’s image. Princess said since the actor’s arrest, she has been getting death threats.
