Alfa Babatunde, the founder of Sotitobire Miracle Centre burst into tears as he was moved out of the court into the black maria.

He was led into the black maria with six other members of the church arraigned with him.

Prophet Alfa was brought into the Oke-Eda court premises by operatives of the DSS on Monday morning in a white Hiace Toyota bus with number plate AKR – 54-AM.

Recall that on November 10, 2019, Gold was declared missing after the church programme at Sotitobire Miracle Centre after his mother, Mrs. Modupe Kolawole dropped him off at the church’s children department.

Prophet Alfa was arrested by officials of the DSS two weeks ago following a petition by the missing boy parent over the alleged failure by the Nigerian Police to intervene in the situation.

The situation reached its crescendo on December 18, 2019, when angry youths attacked and razed the church over rumours that the corpse of the missing baby was exhumed from the church altar.

The 42-year-old Prophet was arraigned alongside six workers of the church on a three-count charge.

The charge sheet read, “That you Prophet Alfa Babatunde ’m’, Omodara Olayinka ’f’, Margaret Oyebola ‘f’, Grace Ogunjobi ‘f’, Egunjobu Motunrayo ’f’, Esther Kayode ’f’, Peter Anjorin ‘m’ others now at large on the 10th day of November 2019 at about 11:45 am at Sotitobire Praising Chapel, No. 48, Solagbade Street, Oshinle Quarters, Akure, Ondo State in the Akure Magisterial District did conspire together to commit felony to Wit: Kidnapping and thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 516 of Criminal Code, Cap 37, Vol. I, Laws of Undo State 2006.
