The actor is being tried over charges bothering on rape, sexual assault and abuse of a minor.
Mr Olanrewaju was brought into the premises of the magistrate court around 12 noon; limping and visibly shaking obviously in a bad health condition.
Recalls that Baba Ijesha, has been in police custody since April for allegedly defiling the foster daughter of popular comedienne, Princess Damilola.
Olanrewaju was granted bail on May 17, at the State Criminal Investigation Department SCID Panti on health grounds by a magistrate.
He has however not been released as bail condition includes that he must have two sureties. Also, the bail is placed at N500, 000 in bond.
However, his colleague Yomi Fabiyi was among those who were present at the court.
“I want to see how the court (hearing) will go because there are so many lacunas, so many things that should have been done. I want to see how the rule of law and justice is being served,” he told The Nation.
