My source in Akure told me that Alfa Babatunde’s wife and few loyal members of the ministry have been on intense fasting and prayers since the day his case was adjourned till 17th of January.
He said, “since there is nothing anyone can do except to call on God, they (wife and those members) have been fasting and praying. There is no one who could influence the decision. It is a very delicate case. Remember, influential people in Akure have been trying to distance themselves since the issue became volatile where a policeman was reportedly killed.”
“I can confirm to you that there is probable tension in his family and among some loyal members of his church as regards tommorow’s case. The prayers had been centered around his release on bail so that he can have time to take care of his deteriorating health.”
“Although, they could not hold meetings under his auditorium located at 46/54 Sholagbade Street, Oshinle, Akure, because it has been sealed by the police but, the group alongside his wife have been meeting secretly to pray for his release.” My source revealed.
We also reliably gathered that the Prophet who has subjected himself to almost everyday fasting is praying among other things that he should be released on bail. His wife has joined him, so also were some of his loyal and dedicated followers.
Prophet Alfa Babatunde and six other members of his church were on Monday, December 23, 2019 remanded at the Olokuta Correctional Centre in Akure over a two-count charge of conspiracy to kidnap and aiding kidnapping of a 13-month-old boy, Gold Kolawole, on November 10, 2019 and their case adjourned till tomorrow pending the outcome of the Department of State Security, DSS, investigation. But now, all that the family and his followers have resulted to is prayer for his bail release.
