Breaking!! Court strikes out application to stop investigation of Sotitobire Church Prophet’s lawyer




Justice Olusgeun Odusola has struck out an application by counsel to founder of sotitobire praising chapel Akure, Olusola Oke seeking to vacate his order that he should be investigated.

The judge at last sitting had ruled that Mr Oke be investigated by the Department of State Services, DSS following some allegations raised by the state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adekola Olawoye.

Justice Odusola however at today’s sitting struck out the application dated 29 September 2020 after Mr Banjo Ayenakin who stood in for Olusola Oke moved a motion for adjournment of hearing of the application to enable him file his counter affidavit to the state’s reply.

State counsel, John Joshua dada said he was ready with the case, but Mr Ayenakin insisted on an adjournment and withdrew from the case when the judge did not budge on his request.

Justice Odusola therefore struck out the application since there was no longer an applicant and proceeded to deliver judgement in the trail of Prophet Alfa and 6 other church members.
