10. Court refuses Baba Ijesha‘s bail application
An Ikeja Special Offences Court has refused the bail application pending appeal filed by the convicted Nollywoord actor, James Olarewaju, AKA, Baba Ijesha.

According to Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, the actor must show special and exceptional circumstances because the term given to him is five years which is to run concurrently.
Justice Taiwo also said there is no evidence that the appeal has been entered and there is no indication before the court that it will not treat the case expeditiously.
“It is in the view of this court that the applicant has failed to show special circumstances to warrant him bail because he is facing a serious crime,” he added.
