Rape: We will keep Baba Ijesha till court workers resume from strike – Lagos police commissioners tells Yomi Fabiyi and other protesters

Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu has said that actor Olanrewaju Omiyinka a.k.a Baba Ijesha will be kept in custody till the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria calls off its nationwide strike and courts resume so that he could be arraigned.


Odumosu said this in response to the protest Baba Ijesha’s friend and colleague Yomi Fabiyi, and others held on Wednesday May 12 at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, for his release on bail.


The police commissioner also disclosed that Baba Ijesha has been held in custody based on legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions in the state Ministry of Justice, and after a prima facie case had been established against him.


He said;


 “When they got the SCIID today (Wednesday), they were advised by the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the SCIID, and he told them that we have done our work and sought legal advice from the Ministry of Justice and the advice was that we should still keep him in our custody.

“When we concluded our investigation, we forwarded our report to the ministry for legal advice. The ministry advised us through the Office of the Public Defender. The legal advice was that there was a prima facie case established against him and some sections of the law were quoted in the advice. So, the advice was that he should still remain in our custody and to be charged for that.”


Also revealing that Baba Ijesha’s continous detention will be reviewed if JUSUN strike continues indefinitely, the police chief further disclosed that court workers have agreed to work for three days and continue their strike on the remaining two working days of the week.
