Prayer mountain controversial boy recovers from ailment
The controversy surrounding the sudden disappearance and eventual discovery of the Osogboborn eight-year-old boy, Boluwatife Babatunde at a prayer mountain in Ikoyi, Osun State has subsided as the Osun State Police Command’s clinic completed treatment of the boy and other members of his family and discharge them.
It was gathered that the father of the boy, Olanrewaju Babatunde could not pay rent where he lives and his landlord ejected the family from the apartment they occupied. As a result, the displaced family relocated to the CAC Ori-Oke Ayo, Ikoyi in Isokan Local Government Council Area of Osun State.
Olanrewaju’s situation became complicated when his son became missing and could not be found for several days. The man later accused some individuals at the prayer ground that they kidnapped his son and that they wanted to use the boy for ritual.
The matter was reported to the police and search party was raised to comb the bush around the prayer mountain in search for the boy. The boy was found five days after with swollen stomach and rashes all over his body, resembling a monster.
When his son was presented to him, the father insisted that something has been done to the boy by his abductors.
Meanwhile, police findings indicated that the boy was not kidnapped but he strayed into the thick bush and could not find his way back to the prayer mountain.
However, to ascertain the claims of the father of the boy, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Fimihan Adeoye directed police doctors to examine the boy and confirmed the true nature of his condition.
After series of tests, police doctors said the boy was suffering from several ailments, dismissing the ritual allegation
The administrators of the prayer mountain while reacting to the development said some individuals deliberately wanted to use Boluwatife’s case to put the Minister of God at the prayer mountain in trouble
