… Defence Counsel Again Applied For Prophet’s Bail
An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure on Monday granted more time for the Department of Public Prosecution (DPP) to tender evidences in closing its case on the trial of Prophet Babatunde Alfa of Sotitobire Church and six others.
The Precision NG recalled that the seven defendants were charged to court over the disappearance of a year old child, Gold Kolawale on November, 10 f1c
2019 in the Church.
The Court at the sitting, admitted in evidence an electronics gadget and attendance register collected by the DSS from the Church.
Appearing before the high court was the 7th and last witness for the DPP, Olakunle Adedayo of the DSS.
He informed the court that the involvement of the Service was as a result of petitions by the Ondo State House of Assembly, Human Rights Commission and other bodies which prompted its investigations on the missing child.
The Court admitted as evidences the church register where it was confirmed that Gold kolawole’s name was number 87 on the list of children and also a laptop recovered by the DSS from the Church’s media officer which allegedly contains two videos.
The defence counsel later cross-examined the witness for more clarifications.
The Court also received two applications from the defence counsel which bothered on bail applications and the other challenging the propriety of freezing the account of the first defendant Prophet Alfa by the DSS.
Justice Olusegun Odusola subsequently fixed June 15th,16 and 18th 2020 to enable the defendants open their case and tender counter evidence to exonerate themselves from the missing of baby Kolawole.
