Missing Body Was Not Exhumed From Akure Church – Ondo State Police Command



The report that the body of missing one-year-old, Gold Kolawole, was exhumed from the Sotitobire Miracle Church in Akure, Ondo state, has been dismissed by the state police command.

Recall that Naija News had reported that some angry youths in the community stormed the church premises and set the church on fire over the report that the missing boy’s body was exhumed from the altar.

The Ondo State police command in a statement through its spokesperson, Femi Joseph, said the report is untrue.

“The Ondo State Police Command wishes to inform the general public particularly the People of Ondo State that they should disregard the rumours making the rounds that the body of a recently declared missing boy in the state has been exhumed from Sotitobire church in Akure.”

“It is most unfortunate that this misleading information spearheaded by a popular TV station, has ignited spontaneous reactions from the people leading to wanton destruction of properties and injuries to many.”

“The church building was also set ablaze by irate youths. Some of our officers dispatched to the scene to contain the situation were pelted with stones with many of them sustaining injuries.”

“Their patrol vehicle was also badly damaged. This rejoinder became necessary to disabuse the minds of many Nigerians who might have fallen for this wicked lies and propaganda.”

“The public should also not be hoodwinked by reports that the command has abandoned the investigation of the incident,as the case file is already on the way to the DPP for legal advice. Notwithstanding this latest incident, more reinforcement has been sent to the scene to contain the situation.” the statement read.
