06 April 2016, 18:02

Lagos - Trial in the case involving performance artist, Jelili Atiku, was on Monday was again adjourned till April 25, reports AllAfrica

Atiku was accused of causing public disturbance with his performance of Aragamago, designed to eradicate domestic terrorism on January 14, 2016 at Ejigbo community.

The trial is being held at Ejigbo Magistrate's Court in Lagos. The Magistrate Judge Adeyemi, adjourned the case because the complainant, Chief Fatai Ibraheem, who represented the Oba of Ejigbo, excused himself from trial on grounds of ill health.

However, before the adjournment, counsel to Atiku, Yomi Animashaun, raised objection to the admissibility of a particular photograph as evidence, saying instead of one photograph as earlier shown at the first trial, two photographs were now being admitted.

Atiku, who recently received the Netherlands' Prince Claus grant, performed Aragamago that focused on eradicating domestic terrorism in Ejigbo. For some years now, Atiku has consistently used art as a medium of protest to raise awareness and to bring about change around the world.

The court case has got a lot of international attention.
