Embattled Nollywood actor, Baba Ijesha, told the court that everything that happened between him and the minor in the supposed CCTV footage that has been found as an attempted rape was just a movie script they were playing out.
Baba Ijesha was arrested and charged to court in 2021 for molesting a child under the care of comedienne, Princess.
While presenting a transcript of his Whatsapp chat with Princess, Baba Ijesha said that the act was a movie script engineered by his colleague, Princess.
A conversation on WhatsApp between Princess and Baba Ijesha was presented by the defense counsel and tendered before the court admittance into evidence by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo.
“On April 19, 2021, Princess sent me a message that she wanted to start a production and she would like me to play the role of a lover boy which I replied ‘okay’.
“She said the story is about rape and she wanted to tell the story in another dimension.”
I asked for the movie location but she told me to come over to her house.”
“Before I entered, Princess met me at the balcony that the movie production was a Lagos State project, adding that the state wanted her to be the face of ‘anti-child molestation.’
“She told me to improvise and create a story by myself. I told her the house was dark when I entered. She said we should rehearse that she would use her phone.
“Princess told me to kiss and suck the br€ast of the child, adding that the dress the girl was wearing was purposely for the role the girl wanted to play.
“She would leave the room so that the child would not be shy to play out the role.
“All those things we are seeing in that video is just acting. My lord check my record when it comes to acting, I can kill myself and die for acting. She was the one directing and filming my angles,” he said.
“She told me I could go into the kitchen as well. She told the girl in question you remember what I told you, when I leave the room now, act out your role perfectly.
“The girl removed my shoe and I started acting out my role. I romanced her based on the movie role Princess gave me.
“As I was acting with the girl, kissing and licking her fingers, I was also whispering to her ‘hey do not look at the camera’.
“Suddenly, I saw like eight people including Princess, entered the room and started beating the girl,” he concluded.
