The high court sitting in Akure, the Ondo state capital has admitted the statement of the Father of the one year old boy, Gold Kolawole that got missing at the Sotitobire church in November last year.
The Precision NG reports that Mr Temitope Kolawole testified at the
ongoing trial of the church’s founder prophet Babatunde Alfa and 6 other members on Tuesday.
Mr Kolawole had made a statement at the anti-kidnapping section of the Ondo state police Command at the wake of the case.
At the hearing on Tuesday, Gold’s Father was examined by the state led by the director of public prosecution, Grace Olowoporoku for over four hours.
Kolawole told the court how he was allegedly harassed and his cloth torn by loyalists of the prophet in the church.
He also told the court how 14 children teachers in the church claimed to have gone to throw away waste while his son got missing.
While being cross examined by counsel to Babatunde Alfa, Olusola Oke, Kolawole said he got to know the prophet in June 2019.
Justice Olusegun Odusola in his ruling admitted the statement made by Mr Kolawole, adding that Prophet Alfa and his co-defendants be returned to the Olokuta facility of the Nigeria correctional service for continuation of hearing on Wednesday 3rd June 2020.
