Thereafter, the founder of the church, Prophet Alfa Babatunde, was arrested by the men of the Department of State Services and currently standing trial at a magistrates’ court.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Femi Joseph, while confirming the arrest, said the 39-year-old suspect, who adopted ‘Adamu’ as his name, claimed to have the baby in his custody in Akure.
Also confirming the development, the counsel for Babatunde, Mr Sola Oke, said the suspect was arrested in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where he fled to.
