The founder of Sotitobire Miracle Centre, Prophet Alfa Babatunde Omoemi, who assembled half-naked old women to pray for him inside his church in Akure, Ondo State, has been arrested by officials of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Prophet Babatunde Omoemi Alfa was arrested at his church by the DSS operatives, following a petition against him about a one-year-old child identified as Gold Kolawole, who went missing in his church.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that on November 10, Gold went missing at the Sunday service in the church after his mother, Mrs. Modupe Kolawole dropped him at the children’s department of the church which is located at the Oshinle Quarters area of Akure, the Ondo State capital.
Following the mysterious disappearance of her son at the church, Mrs. Kolawole accused the Prophet of being behind the family’s predicament.
She also alleged that Prophet Alfa has been using his contacts to harass them from getting justice.
The DSS confirmed inviting Babatunde for interrogation at their office in Akure.
According to a source at the DSS office:
“Pastor Babatunde was invited this afternoon to our office for interrogation after we got a petition about a missing child in his church.
“We had earlier contacted him through his lawyer but both of them were not cooperating with us.
“Fortunately, he showed up this afternoon after intense pressure, so we had to quickly swing into action by taking him to his house for a search.
“We also searched his church thoroughly. His case is being moved to Abuja for further investigation.”
