Operatives of the Nigeria police have arrested 30-year-old prophet of Cherubim $ seraphim church Ajuwon, prophet Joseph Ogundeji.
Ogundeji was nabbed for defiling two under age sisters between ages 16 and 13 who are members of his church on Ajuwon area of Ogun State.
Spokesman of the Nigeria police Command in the State, SP. Abimbola Oyeyemi said this in a statement on Tuesday.
The Cleric was arrested on the 11th of November 2022, following a complain lodged at Ajuwon divisional headquarters by the father of the two underage girls, who reported that she discovered that his 16 years old daughter is pregnant.
The victim’s father told police that when he inquired to know who is responsible for the pregnancy, it was discovered that the prophet is the one who impregnated her.
“Upon the report, the DPO Ajuwon division, SP Andrew Akinseye detailed his detectives to effect the arrest of the randy prophet.
“On interrogation, the prophet admitted that he actually committed the crime.
“In the course of investigation, it was discovered that the said prophet did not only had carnal knowledge of the 16 years old girl, but her 13 years old younger sister too was defiled by the same prophet”, Oyeyemi said.
The two victims informed the police that whenever they have vigil in the church, the prophet who lives very close to the church will asked them to go and stay in his house after the vigil which always comes to an end around 3a.m.
They further told police that anytime they stay in the prophet house, he used to give them something to lick, and after licking it, they will sleep off only to wake up and discovered that the prophet had had sex with them.
When asked why they didn’t inform their parents, the victims informed the police that the suspect threatened to kill anyone of them that let the cat out of the bag, according to the statement.
Consequently, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be transferred to anti human trafficking and child labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and possible prosecution.
