Actor Olanrewaju James, also known as Baba Ijesha, has expressed his distress over his failing health from his hospital bed.
The actor, who suffered embarrassment after being found guilty of rape in July, disclosed that he has been fighting a dangerous and fatal illness in jail that has worsened his condition.
Baba Ijesha claimed that he doesn’t sleep or eat well anymore.
The actor, who doesn’t want to die, begged Nigerians to save his life as he was suffering for a crime he is innocent of.
The actor went on to call on God to judge comedian, Princess who accused him of defiling her adopted daughter.
“I am battling a very serious and deadly ailment here in prison which is deteriorating my health. Please I need help. I don’t sleep or eat well anymore. I don’t want to die here. I am suffering for what I know nothing about. The Almighty God will judge Princess for lying against me that I used to deflower her daughter”.
This new update is coming days after the embattled actor had asked an Ikeja Domestic and Sexual Violence Court to grant him post-conviction bail pending a hearing and determination of his appeal before the Lagos Division of the Court of Appeal.
In July, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo had sentenced Baba Ijesha to 16 years imprisonment for child defilement.
The charges against Baba Ijesha: He was convicted of four out of a six-count charge brought against him by the Lagos State Government.
The jailed actor was convicted of child defilement, indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault and attempted sexual assault by penetration.
