The police prosecutor, ASP John Idoko informed the court that all the accused person and others now at large on July 25, 2020, at about 12:30 PM at Osun-Osogbo shrine conspired among themselves, act obscene drama which appeared on the face of it to bear pornographic pictures of young girls who were half-naked and published same with the knowledge that the owners of Osun Osogbo traditional ground or any other class of persons especially within Osun State will consider an insult to their religious belief.
