The Founder of Sotitobire Miracle Centre, Prophet Alfa Babatunde will continue to be in a detention of Olokuta Correctional Service facility (formerly known as Prisons) in Akure pending the issuance of hearing notice of a case of Kidnapping a one year-old Boy, Gold Kolawole filed against him and five other members of his church.

The Sotitobire Church founder was this morning docked before an Ondo state Magistrate court sitting at Oke-Eda Akure alongside five of his church members on a six -count-charge of alleged felony, conspiracy and Kidnapping of the boy, Gold Kolawole inside the church on the 10th of November, last year.

The court, presided over by Mrs Charity Adeyanju however gave an order today that Prophet Alfa should remain in the prison pending the time the state High court will issue the hearing notice where his bail application could be taken.

Magistrate Adeyanju had earlier barred journalists from covering the court proceedings as she walked out already seated pressmen from her court.

No reason was given for her action.
