An Osun State Magistrate Court sitting in Osogbo on Monday remanded a 27-year-old pornstar identified as Tobiloba Jolaoso and five other in Ilesha Correctional Center over the alleged shooting of ‘sex movie’ at Osun Osogbo shrine.

It was gathered that Jolaoso was arrested by the police following complaints from a member of Traditional Religion Association Worshippers of Nigeria, Amoo Awosunwon.

Jolaoso, Ladiva Aije, Juliet Semion Ahmed Olasunkanmi, Adeniran Eritosin, and Tunde Jimoh were dragged before the magistrate court on eight counts charge bordering on conspiracy, a publication of obscene film, an insult to religion, breach of peace, and damage of police station window.

The police prosecutor, John Idoko informed the court that all the accused persons 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.

He further stated that they conspired amongst themselves to commit a misdemeanor, causing a breach of the peace at Ataoja Estate Police Station by damaging a window.

He noted that offense committed contravened section 516, 233, 517, 249 (d), and 451 of the Criminal Code Cap 34 Vol. Il laws of Osun State of Nigeria 2002.

However, they all pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against them.

The counsel for the defendants, Tunbosun Oladipupo made an oral bail application urging the court to admit them on the most liberal term.

The prosecutor opposed the bail claiming that their actions can cause economic sabotage.

He added that the scene is an international religion centre and might tarnish the image of the religion.

The presiding magistrate, Isola Omisade remanded them to Ilesha Correctional Center and adjourned the case to September 17, 2020, for ruling on bail.
