Founder of Sotitobire Praising Chapel, Akure, Pastor Alfa Babatunde, has dragged the State Security Services, DSS, to the Federal High Court sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital, over his arrest and detention by the security agency.

According to him, his arrest and detention was illegal and infringement on his fundamental human rights.

Daily post reported that the church was burnt down by some angry youths following the alleged discovery of a grave where one-year-old boy, Gold Kolawole, was buried ,,,,.

His lawyer, Yemi Omoware, in a suit filed on behalf of the pastor, sought the order of the court to release him from the custody of the security agency.

The suit sought an order ”enforcing the fundamental rights of the applicant to liberty and dignity of the human person which rights were violated by the respondents.”

The applicant also sought an order ”restraining the respondents, their agents, servants, subordinates and or any person(s) taking instructions from them whatsoever/ whosoever from engaging in any further acts of arrest, detention and violation” of his right to liberty and or dignity of the human person.”

According to the suit, “A N100 million as aggravated damages against the respondents jointly and severally for the violation of the fundamental rights of the applicant,” was sought.


  1. The culprits will be nowhere to be found, he will move on eventually

  2. The nerve. If he was burnt he wouldn't be asking for N100 million. Imagine rubbish.

    1. The police and mother of the missing child have both said no corpse was exhumed from the premises.

      Nigerians like jungle justice based on hearsay.

  3. Is he truly guilty of what he was accuse of???

  4. I hope dey don't sweep dis case under d carpet!he really have gut

  5. Most lawyers will never see the kingdom of God. How can a lawyer be supporting a man that buried a little boy in his church. God should please console the parent of that little boy. Rest in peace Gold Kolawale

    1. Lawyers have a duty to vigorously defend their clients. Not defending based on what one feels is actually against their professional conducts and ethics.

  6. How are we sure he truly committed the crime? Some people, na only go dem dey hear. Dem no dey hear come.

  7. it was only hersay, thier were no proof we are not sure he committed d crime

  8. no crime committed here, imagine the bad name given to his church.
