The accused persons, who appeared before Magistrate Charity Adeyanju, were arraigned on a six-count charge of murder, arson, theft, and vandalism.
On December 18, 2019, some angry youths attacked the church which belongs to Prophet Alfa Babatunde who was alleged of being behind the mysterious disappearance of a one-year-old baby, Gold Kolawole.

The Counsel to the Defendants, Femi Saliu who had argued on the need for his clients to be granted bail, told newsmen after the court sitting that the prosecution had a lot of defects.
He stressed that “n order for them to put their house in order, they had to come back another day with the application to remand them as the Magistrate Court lacks jurisdiction to prosecute the offences charged. I think for their own safety, looking at the circumstances, they were remanded in prison custody.”

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.
