Nigerian comedienne and actress, Princess whose real name is Damilola Adekoya in a newly published interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo revealed that she received death threats for exposing s3x offender, Olanrewaju Omiyinka who is better known as Baba Ijesha.

Baba Ijesha was arrested and arraigned before the Ikeja Domestic Violence and S3xual Offences Court in April 2021 after he was caught in an indecent position with a minor on camera.

Princess, whose foster child was the victim in the case, noted that after she decided to take the case up, a bounty was laid on her life and she had death threats.

Baba Ijesha was sentenced on Thursday after facing six counts of child defilement that included indecent treatment of a child, s3xual assault, attempted s3xual assault by penetration, and s3xual assault by penetration.

Justice Taiwo Oluwatoyin found the defendant guilty of two of the six counts against him and sentenced him to jail for 16 years, adding that the sentence are to run concurrently for five years.

Speaking in the video published late Thursday, the comedienne noted that she had earlier regretted speaking out about the case.

When asked if she felt regret, Princess said, “Now, I don’t, but in the first two to three weeks, I did.”
