A pastor and General Overseer of a church has been arrested for allegedly raping and impregnating a 15-year-old girl.
Punch reports that Dr. Adeniran, the founder of El-Bethel Parish of the Celestial Church of Christ, Itaaka, Abeokuta, was nabbed for impregnating the Senior Secondary School Two (SSS 2), identified as Mary after her mother lodged a complaint with the police.
According to the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, Dr. Adeniran was arrested on Saturday, November 5, 2016, after the girl confessed to her mother he was responsible for her pregnancy.
“Trouble started when the complainant noticed that her daughter was pregnant and she mounted pressure on her to disclose who was responsible for the pregnancy.
The mother, who could not believe what she heard, reported to the police. The Divisional Police Officer, Adigbe Division, Onatufeh Omoh, detailed detectives to arrest the randy pastor.”
ASP Oyeyemi also said that upon interrogation, the young victim said the suspect had lured her into his car on the day she marked her birthday and forcefully deflowered her and has been having sex with her since then till she became pregnant.
The victim allegedly said the suspect had been having sex with her since then.
The PPRO added that the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered that the case should be transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.
The suspect did not, however, deny having sex with the girl, claiming that the devil made him commit the atrocious act of sleeping with mother and daughter.
