A High Court sitting in Akure, Ondo State capital has sentenced to life imprisonment the Founder of the Sotitobire Praising Chapel, Prophet Alfa Babatunde.
He was found guilty of the charge against him over the mysterious disappearance of a child from his church.
The little boy was abducted by an unknown person during the church service at the children section of Sotitobire Praising Chapel, located at Oshinle Quarters in Akure, the state capital, in November 2019, and the whereabouts of the boy was never known.
To this end, Pastor Babatunde was arrested, alongside seven other members of the church, and was arraigned before a magistrates’ court on six counts.
The matter was later transferred to the state High Court.
Delivering his judgement on Tuesday, Justice Olusegun Odusola convicted the defendants, having found them guilty of two counts of kidnapping, and aiding and abetting to kidnap “based on the circumstantial evidence” presented by the prosecution.
