The founder of Sotitobire Miracle Center, Akure, Prophet Alpha Babatunde, has been arraigned before a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Oke-Eda, Akure.
According to Punch, they were arraigned by officials of the Department of State Services on two counts of felony and kidnap.
Babatunde was arraigned alongside six other members of the church – Omodara Olayinka, Margaret Oyebola, Grace Ogunjobi, Egunjobi Motunrayo, Esther Kayode and Peter Anjorin.
Recall that one-year-old boy, Gold Kolawole, was declared missing during a Sunday service in the church on November 10. Angered by the perceived unconcerned attitude of the leaders of the church over the boy’s disappearance, youths on Wednesday, December 18, burnt down the church.
Property worth millions of naira belonging to the church was destroyed, three people, including a police officer, were killed and several others injured.
