The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo rejected the bail application of the embattled actor, Baba Ijesha on the grounds that he did not meet exceptional circumstances and criteria to warrant the bail.
“The applicant must show special and exceptional circumstances because the term given to him is five years which is to run concurrently. “There is no evidence that the appeal has been entered, and there is no indication before this court that the court will not treat the case expeditiously.
