Prophet Sotitobire Babatunde Alfa has left prison.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Founder of Sotitobire Praising Chapel, Babatunde Alfa has been released from the Olokuta Correctional facility.
He was received at the correctional facility by his church members and his team of lawyers on Tuesday.
The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital, had upturned the life imprisonment conviction against him over the disappearance of one-year-old Gold Kolawole in his Church in November 2019.
The court acquitted the Prophet of conspiring, aiding and abetting the disappearance of Gold Kolawole in his church.
Recall that an Ondo State High court had sentenced the Prophet to life imprisonment over the disappearance of Gold Kolawole in his church in 2019.
Prophet Alfa then appealed the judgement of the High Court, asking the Court of Appeal court to nullify his life sentence conviction.
Delivering judgement on behalf of other judges, Justice Gamma Barka ruled that the circumstantial evidence the high court based its judgement on was not enough to convict him.
Justice Barka, therefore, discharged and acquitted Prophet Alfa of the offence.
