"After spending three days, I told her she needed to go out and bring some of her relations so that they would know where she was. But she did not."

“Later, some parents in my church also said they would like to send their chidlren to live with me. Some of them came to spend holidays after their exam.”

“I am a pastor, the devil only used the children against me. I did not rape them. I only slept with one of the girls.  She is my girlfriend and we actually planned to marry.”
