Angry youths have set ablaze a pentecostal church in Akure, Ondo state after the corpse of a year-old boy, initially declared missing in the church, was exhumed.
It was gathered that the church was set on fire after the corpse of a year old boy declared missing in the church some week ago was exhumed.
The boy Gold Kolawole was declared missing during a service in the church last month. He was last seen at the children’s department of the church and was missing at the end of service. The mother suspected foul play and the DSS was petitioned over the boy’s disappearance.
The founder, Prophet Alpha Babatunde has since been arrested. He is currently in the custody of the Department of State Security(DSS) in Akure, Ondo State capital.
