Sotitobire: Absence of AG stalls hearing of case today

In furtherance to the hearing of the case suited against the Founder of the Sotitobire Miracle Center, Akure, Prophet Alfa Babatunde; over the alleged kidnap of a one year old boy; Gold Kolawole; in the Center in November 2019, has been adjourned till the 2nd of June 2020.

The presiding judge, Justice Olusegun Odusola on Monday announced the adjournment after a representative of the Prosecution Counsel, Mr Babatunde Falodun, informed the court of the inability of the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adekola Olawoye, SAN, to be present due to an urgent state assignment.

Falodun also applied for an adjournment of the hearing and the application was not opposed by the Defence Counsels, Olusola Oke, Olumide Ogidan, Akinyemi Omoware and Olalekan Akinrinsola.

Prophet Babatunde and six others are standing trial on a three-count charge which includes conspiracy to kidnap and the aiding and abetting of kidnap.
