A medical doctor, Dr Aniekan Makanjuola, on Thursday narrated before an Ikeja Special Offences Court how a minor (name withheld) was allegedly defiled by Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James, alias “Baba Ijesha”.

“She disclosed what happened to her mother’s friend on April 16 who in turn informed her mother. We decided to do an examination.
“There was a normal external genitalia, we observed a healed laceration on the labia minora at the 3’0Clock position; we also observed a notch at the 6’0 clock position.
“Based on these findings, my lord, the client was sent to the laboratory for more tests, they were HIV 1 and 2, Hepatitis A, B, Syphilis and pregnancy and they all came out negative.
