Po­lice find Osun Prayer Moun­tain miss­ing boy af­ter 5 days

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Hameed Oyeg­bade, Osogbo

Osun State Po­lice Com­mand has dis­cov­ered the 8-yearold boy, Boluwat­ife Ba­batunde who was miss­ing at a Prayer Moun­tain, CAC Ori-Oke Ayo in Ikoyi, Isokan Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Coun­cil Area of Osun state.

The Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice in the state, Mr Fim­i­han Adeoye told our cor­re­spon­dent that the boy strayed into the bush from the prayer moun­tain and was even­tu­ally dis­cov­ered af­ter five days.

The CP frowned that the fa­ther of the boy, Olan­re­waju Ba­batunde raised false alarm that his son was kid­napped by the ad­min­is­tra­tors of the prayer moun­tain and some in­di­vid­u­als that came to pray there.

Adeoye said the boy went into the bush while look­ing for his mother, that the fa­ther gave mis­lead­ing in­for­ma­tion and caused panic.

The Di­vi­sional Po­lice Of­fi­cer in charge of Apo­mun Divi­sion, Mr Sani Muhammed handed over the boy to his par­ents in Osogbo on be­half of the CP.

When he saw his son, the fa­ther said the stom­ach and the legs of the boy has swelled up and that some­thing must have been done to Boluwat­ife dur­ing the pe­riod that he was miss­ing.

This prompted the Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice to in­vite med­i­cal doc­tors from the po­lice clinic to ex­am­ine the boy. Doc­tor Adeyemi Michael who ex­am­ined the boy said the swell on Boluwat­ife’s stom­ach and legs were not re­cent and not within the pe­riod that he was miss­ing.

Speak­ing on the de­vel­op­ment, one of the cler­ics at the prayer moun­tain, Pas­tor Olu­sanya Alalade ex­pressed worry that the fa­ther of the boy was mak­ing con­tra­dic­tory state­ment and called on the po­lice to in­ves­ti­gate the mat­ter thor­oughly.
