Princess Damilola Adekoya, the iconic comedienne, took to her Instagram page to detail how famous Yoruba actor Baba Ijesha defiled a teenager she named as her foster daughter.
In an emotion-laden video, Princess revealed that when Baba Ijesha came to her for help, the immoral act happened in her house.
She said, “I had challenges with my marriage some years ago and lost a baby. Some parents in my area, out of compassion, let their kids stay with me, so I don’t feel lonely—six of them, three boys, three girls. Now, Baba Ijesha had challenges and came to help me, so I tried my best.
He sat for GCE, and I tried to get him into UNILAG; he was enrolled. He wanted another help that day, and I didn’t go out, so I asked the three boys to go down the street to play at their play spot. My aunt visited me, and he was around. When she left, I had to go downstairs to lock her gate.

“I don’t know what happened in three to four minutes, but the next week, the school called me to come and see my kids. They said the girl sat on her brother’s leg, whining her waist. They called me and the kids’ parents.
The children’s parents are staunchly born-again Christians, and I don’t let them even watch cartoons. If they watch cartoons, I must watch them.”
She said the actor had warned the girl not to tell anyone. He came the next day to keep her mother. With the girl alone, Princess said he defiled her again, this time with his car key.
“Parents said it was spiritual, so we started praying. He warned her not to tell anyone. He came back the next day to be sure she told anyone.
He said he bought fruit and she should follow him to carry everybody’s fruit from his car. Upon falling, he used his key to defile her again. He didn’t come home again, but he’ll call me whenever he needed help,” Princess said.
She took the opportunity to clear the air as Princess revealed that the actor had not sexually assaulted the girl for seven years.
I was shocked when I heard the news that he abused her seven years ago, saying such a wide range of things. Well, he defiled her, assaulted her, but he never came back home again. He always got away from me.
So whenever he needs help, he calls me. I called him at one point to scold him saying he needed my help, but he was in his house; I didn’t have money, and my wedding just ended. He apologised for shooting so I went to meet him. But I noticed he avoided me, but I didn’t know why.”
With a teary eye, the comedian said she noticed the girl’s attitude started to change, and she began to fail in her studies.
“Then the child failed in school. I paid for a private lesson. They told me to pray when I told my family, maybe it was spiritual. Parents said we should keep praying. They put the six kids in my care because they believed I’ll have mine soon if kids surround me.
I kept feeling the child changed. My family said I don’t have faith? We should be fast. Even parents fasted and prayed. After two years, I felt the problem wasn’t spiritual, and it was wrong. All the kids are now grown in the boarding house.
The girl eventually opened and explained what happened; the comedian said she was shocked when the young lady voiced. They immediately planned to catch him red-handed.
“My friend called the child and asked her what the problem was. She told us I was shocked. I chose to call Baba Ijesha. I went to his page and wrote to check his dm.
Because I tried his number, it didn’t happen. He replied on Instagram. I told him I wanted to shoot a movie and I needed him.
My mother and I said we’ll sit down and ask him if it was true. I remembered that day when he was on his way; my sister and friend told me that if we don’t have evidence, people will support Baba Ijesha.
I called a CCTV company to instal cameras, and I told them it was about life and death to set up the camera. When we set the camera, we asked everyone to leave, but the girl was scared. We’ve calmed her down.
She hadn’t seen him again since the incident until she saw him in a recent movie together. She was jittery when she saw him in the film, but she couldn’t say anything until she finally opened up.
“He saw me and the camera installers when he came in, then he asked who they were, but I said they were from a cable company. I told him I’m going to go out and I’m going to stay a long time to relax.
He checked everywhere in my house in two seconds, I left the house to ensure no one was home or the kids were sleeping.
He checked cameras throughout the house, then started. I can’t even start saying what he did. My body shook because we watched on the phone.
When she stood up to the kitchen, I knew there was no camera in the kitchen, so people came in, and we called the police. Police came to pick him up immediately.
“I asked Lanre what I did to you. Because you know I don’t have a kid, people kept these kids in my care so I won’t over-think, and you did that to me.
He said I was his benefactor, but the devil. He was talking rubbish.
I asked him what happened seven years ago, but he begged me. They took him. We go to the police station every day from morning till night. I can’t sleep since it happened. Some people tried to threaten me.”
