Missing child: Court frees founder of Sotitobire Church


Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, Ondo State has freed the founder of Sotitobire church, Alfa Babatunde. He was discharged and acquitted.

The court set aside the judgement of the Ondo State High court that sentenced the founder of the Sotitobire Praising Chapel.

An Ondo State High court had sentenced the Prophet to life imprisonment over the disappearance of one- year -old boy, Gold Kolawole in his church in 2019.

The Sotitobire founder had asked the appeal court to quash his life sentence conviction.

The court ruled that the circumstantial evidence the high court based its judgement was not enough to convict him.
He was therefore discharged and acquitted.
Justice Gamma Barka read the judgement on behalf of other judges.
