Gold Kolawole, a one-year-old baby, was reported missing during a church service in Akure last month after being registered in the children department unit of the church; Sotitobire Miracle Church in Akure, Ondo state.
According to reports sites on CelebrityBuzz.com, the Church has now been set on fire by infuriated youths after the corpse of the missing boy was allegedly exhumed, from the church altar.
Also, an eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity, said people were baffled when police officers attached to B Division Station, Akure, arrived and began to beat residents and chase them away from the church.
“There was a rumor that the child was found at the altar of the church as early as 6:00 am, I rushed to the church.
“By the time I got there, we began to ask questions then we discovered that it was a rumor but the rumor had filtered through the community.
“Residents of the community all trooped to the church.
“In a twinkle of an eye, armed policemen began attacking residents including journalists who also came to do their job.
“In retaliation, angry community members set the church ablaze.” the witness said.
Modupe Kolawole, mother of the child and member of the church, said she suspects foul play in the disappearance of her son.
Alfa Babatunde, founder of the church, was arrested following the incident, and he has been in the custody of the DSS. His arrest comes after a petition was written by the parents of the missing child
