Magistrate denies Baba Ijesha bail, case goes to High Court
A Yaba Chief Magistrate Court has denied Nollywood actor Omiyinka Olanrewaju, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, bail.
Mr P.E Nwaka turned down Baba Ijesha’s application for bail on the ground that the same charge is already before a Lagos State High Court.
He said: “I have carefully considered the application of the counsel to the defendant seeking bail for the defendant and the opposition by the counsel from the DPP.
“Since there are indications that the matter is before the High Court and the defendant will appear before the court, no bail can be given.
“The defendant must be accorded full medical attention by the authorities pending his arraignment at the high court.”
Mr Nwaka adjourned the matter till July 13 for mention.
Next Rated reality show to debut soon
Plans have been concluded for the debut edition of the Next Rated reality television.
The Project Coordinator of the TV show, Emmanuel Enero, in a statement, said the aim of the show was to create opportunities for emerging young talents in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
He stated that 24 contestants would be selected from four different regions that include Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Owerri, and other African countries.
Enero said: “Only one winner will emerge, and this winner must be talented. The 24 contestants will be camped in a house for a period of 6 weeks, they will undergo series of tasks in the various entertainment categories, their intellectual and physical strength will be checked, behavioral attitudes will also be checked through their relationship with other housemates, and their tolerance for each other. We expect the atmosphere to be a bit tensed especially in the group tasks.”
