Veteran actress, Idowu Phillips aka Iya Rainbow, has disclosed that she pleaded with Damilola Adekoya aka Comedienne Princess for four days to drop Baba Ijesha's defilement case.

Speaking in a recent chat with the BBC Yoruba, Iya Rainbow said she did everything possibly known to man to get Princess not to press further on the case but she did not succumb.

Omiyinka Olanrewaju popularly known as Baba Ijesha was apprehended in April after he was caught on CCTV allegedly defiling the foster daughter of comedian, Princess Damilola.

WuzupNigeria reported that he subsequently appeared before a Yaba Magistrates' Court on June 16th, 2021, where he pleaded not guilty to charges of indecent treatment of a child, defilement of a child, sexual assault by penetration, attempted sexual assault by penetration, and sexual assault.

However, appearing before an Ikeja Special Offences Court on Thursday, June 24th, he has now been granted N2 million bail.

According to Iya Rainbow, now that Baba Ijesha has been released, things have to be resolved amicably among the theatre practitioners.

"Before the matter was settled, I asked princess for four days not to take the matter to court. I urged her not to let this matter get louder, but she refused. Now, see how the whole thing played out," she said.

She also stated that either Baba Ijesha is guilty or not, their group must rise up and settle things amicably.
