Prophet Babatunde Alfa, founder of the Sotitobire Miracle Centre where a one-year-old child, Gold went missing has been arraigned before a magistrate court sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Prophet Alfa was brought into the Oke-Eda court premises by operatives of the DSS at exactly on Monday morning in a white Hiace Toyota bus with number plate AKR – 54-AM.

Recall that on November 10, , Gold was declared missing after the church programme at Sotitobire Miracle Centre after his mother, Mrs. Modupe Kolawole dropped him off at the church’s children department.

A month after, Prophet Alfa was arrested by officials of the DSS following a petition by the missing boy parent over the alleged failure by the Nigerian Police to intervene in the situation.

The situation reached its crescendo on December 18, 2019, when angry youths attacked and razed the church over rumours that the corpse of the missing baby was exhumed from the church altar.

The 42-year-old Prophet was arraigned alongside six of the church on a three-count charge.

NCDC reveals why Nigeria’s COVID-19 cases are low

Published

on

By

The Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has disclosed that the low number of the COVID-19 cases in the country is due to the lesser amount of samples collected across the states.

Chikwe Ihekweazu, NCDC Director-General, stated this during the Presidential Task Force briefing on COVID-19 in Abuja on Thursday.

Ihekweazu, who was represented by Mrs. Elsie Ilori, NCDC Head of Surveillance and Epidemiology Department, stated that the testing labs were underutilized because the states were not collecting enough samples for the laboratory to test.

“As mentioned earlier since the Sallah break we have had some of our confirmed cases have been very low compared to what we’ll be having before, but this isn’t because the numbers are getting low but because we are not collecting enough samples.

“If you notice, the number of samples collected during Salah was very low, and we believe it was because of the festival season some labs even went on break, it should not have been.

“So we are working with the states to quickly address this so that we do not have this kind of situation again,” he said.

According to the Ihekweazu, we sometimes know when we look at stigmatization, people say they do not want to go to testing sites because they’ll be stigmatized.

“But I mean, this isn’t something to be ashamed of, we have just had an example amongst us, it can happen to anybody.

So, please let us come out and be tested.”
