As the case of the missing one-year-old boy, Eniola Gold Kolawole continues today, the Magistrate Court Oke Eda, Akure, Ondo State capital on Wednesday, has moved the trial of the founder of the Sotitobire Miracle Centre to the state’s High Court.
Source gathered that the case was moved to the high court following an advice from Directorate of Public Prosecution.
Recall that, Prophet Babatunde Alfa, the founder and the General overseer of the Sotitobire Miracle Centre, who is standing trial over the disappearance of the toddler, was dragged to court by the Department of State Services,DSS, after being accused of conspiring with other suspects to orchestrate the vanishing of the boy
One of the court clerks, who asked not to be named, said, “The case won’t be heard here again. It has been moved to the high court due to the advice of the DPP.
“The proper trial of the case should begin tomorrow, Thursday, February 6, at that court and all parties involved will be present.”
Lead suspect in the disappearance of the child, Prophet Babatunde Alfa, and his co-defendants – Omodara Olayinka, Margaret Oyebola, Grace Ogunjobi, Egunjobi Motunrayo, Esther Kayode and Peter Anjorin – didn’t appear in the court, raising lots of questions.
Alfa, who is standing trial over the disappearance of the toddler, was dragged to court by the Department of State Services after being accused of conspiring with other suspects to orchestrate the vanishing of the boy.
Their offences are said to be punishable under Section 5 of Ondo State Anti-kidnapping and Anti-Abduction law 2010 if found guilty.
