Pastor Arrested For Raping Church Member During Deliverance In Ogun
A pastor of one ”Life and Power Bible Church” in Ogijo has been arrested by the Ogun State police command for allegedly raping a 19-year-old member during a deliverance.
HGS Media Plus reports that the incident happened on Sunday, February 2022 in Ogijo area of Ogun State.
The suspect identified as Mathew Oladapo was said to have lure the victim by telling her that she has a spiritual husband which she needs to be delivered of.
It was said that the pastor asked her to undergo a three days fasting and prayer in the church for deliverance and that she should come along with the sum of one thousand naira and an anointing oil.
It was gathered that on the first night of the supposed fasting and prayer, the pastor asked the victim to take off her clothes and lay down on a floor where he used anointing oil on her body and then inserted his finger into her private part. The girl immediately protested and consequently, the pastor forcefully had his way with her claiming it was the way to break the bond between her and the spirit.
However, upon interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime and claimed that he was overwhelmed by the spirit.
Spokesperson of the state police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi who confirmed the arrest said the suspect has been transferred to the anti human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
