Doctor Confirms Defilement Of Minor In Baba Ijesha’s Case

After watching the video of the 14-year-old girl allegedly defiled by Nollywood Actor, James Olanrewaju, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, the Lagos State Sexual Offences Court sitting in Ikeja has heard that the child was defiled and suffered a ruptured vagina which has since healed.

The testimony was given at the proceedings on Thursday by another prosecution witness and a medical practitioner, Dr Aneikan Makanjuola.

Makanjuola, who described herself as the Clinical Director of Women At Risk International Foundation (WARIF), stated under cross-examination that further examination of the survivor also showed that prior to the incident, the child was not sexually active.

She gave evidence before Justice Toyin Taiwo in the alleged sexual assault charge brought against Baba Ijesha by the Lagos State government.

The witness, who said the minor was referred to her organisation by the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) of the Nigeria Police, clarified the circumstances that led to the report.

According to her, the report was not based on the story told by the survivor, nor on the account by her mother but on the forensic examination carried out on her.
