Samuel Babatunde: Police Have Arrested Founder Of Cherubim and Seraphim Church After Discovery Of Human Parts Buried Inside Church
The Ogun State police command have arrested the one prophet Samuel Babatunde, founder of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, and three others at their Itedo Isinmi Ayo parish, Egan Road, in the Iyana-Iyesi area of Ota, in the Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state after the discovery of human parts buried inside the church. The state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, paraded the 77-year-old on Wednesday in his church.
Iliyasu disclosed that the police made the shocking discovery following the arrest of a suspected serial kidnapper, Jeremiah Adeola, last Saturday, August 12. He added that the suspect who specialises in kidnapping children, has confessed that Babatunde was the receiver of the abducted children. The police boss also disclosed that a herbalist who has already been identified as Haruna Afolabi, was among the suspects who allegedly buried the human parts at the entrance of the church.
The state Commissioner of Police said the discovery was made when operatives attached to the Ota Area Command, received an intelligence report about Adeola last Sunday and apprehended him. He said:
“On the strength of the intelligence, detectives from the Ota Area Command were detailed to effect the arrest of the suspect. At about 10.20am of the date, their efforts paid off when the said Jeremiah Adeola was arrested.
“On interrogation, he confessed to being a serial kidnapper and mentioned the name of the prophet as the receiver of the kidnapped children.
“Upon his revelation, he was taken to the church of the said prophet at Iyana-Iyesi Ota, where 77-year-old Samuel Babatunde, the man in charge of the church, and one Haruna Afolabi, a 42-year-old traditional worshipper, were arrested.
“The floor of the church was dug as described by the first suspect, and suspected human parts were brought out.”
Iliyasu has assured that forensic examination would be done on the exhibits adding that all those found culpable would be brought to book. However, prophet Samuel Babatunde denied the allegation levelled against him while speaking with journalists. He confessed that a pig was buried alive inside the church and not human parts.
He said he buried the pig “to bring good fortune, prosperity and comfort to the congregation of the church.”
According to Babatunde, he met Adeola at a prayer mountain in Ibadan, Oyo State but never contracted him for human parts. He claimed that the alleged serial kidnapper had a mental problem. However, Adeola insisted that the prophet was the receiver of some kidnapped children. He even claimed that Babatunde paid N50,000 for each of the two children he supplied to him recently.
Babatunde who founded the church in 2005, has expressed regret over the incident, which he blamed on the devil.
