A 48-year-old pastor arrested for impregnating a 12-year-old daughter of church member in Ogun

Pastor Michael Abiodun, 48, of “The Light House Gospel Church” in Oluwo, Owode Egba, in the local government of Obafemi Owode, was detained by officers from the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly defiling and impregnating the 12-year-old daughter of a churchgoer (name withheld).

The victim’s mother joined the church as a result of a spiritual issue that resulted in the deaths of two of her daughters, according to information that was obtained at Owode Egba divisional headquarters, which led to the Pastor’s arrest. She hurried to the church for deliverance in an effort to spare the victim from the same tragedy.

On a fateful day, the Pastor who is a father of three asked the victim’s mother to send her to him for special prayers, but on getting there, the Pastor took her into a room within the church and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her which resulted in pregnancy. 

Upon the information, the DPO Owode Egba division, CSP Olasunkanmi Popoola, detailed his detectives to the scene where the randy Pastor was promptly arrested. 

On interrogation, he confessed to the crime but blamed it on the devil. He further confessed to being the one that disvirgined the victim, a JSS 2 student. 

The mother of the victim explained to the police that she didn’t know her daughter was pregnant until seven months after.

The victim, who was delivered of a baby three months ago informed the police that she was threatened by the Pastor with a dare consequence if she informed anybody about what had happened between them, and that was the reason she didn’t tell her mother. 

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the state Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the transfer of the suspect to State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and possible prosecution.
