The adjournment was due to the absence of two witnesses for the Lagos State Government, the prosecution.

Counsel to the Lagos State Government, Yusuf Sule told Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo that one of the two witnesses that was due to testify, a police officer, had been posted out of the jurisdiction of the court.

Justice Taiwo told the prosecution to put its house in order and adjourned further hearing for November 19 and December 2.

Speaking to journalists, the defense team led by Mr Kayode Olabiran said he didn’t object to the development, noting that the Director of Public Prosecution, Olayinka Adeyemi, already informed them the day before.

Baba Ijesha is facing six counts bordering on allegations of indecent treatment of a child, sexual assault, attempted sexual assault by penetration, and sexual assault by penetration.

He has since pleaded not guilty to the six counts.
