The General Overseer  of  The Beloved Chapel, Agbado  , Ogun State, Pastor  Israel  Adebayo, has owned up  to the police  of defiling  a 14-year –old  member of the church’s choir , but  added  he did not know how it happened!

 

 

The ‘pastor’,  38 years old, was arrested by the police  after the mother of  the teenager  reported at Agbado Divisional  Police Headquarters  that  the head of  the church  ,  located  at 9, Iyaniwura  street , Agbado, lured  her daughter into his room  and forcefully  slept  with her when  she travelled  to treat herself  of  an undisclosed ailment.

 

 

 

The Ogun State  Police Public Relations Officer, Abimblola  Oyeyemi, said the ‘Pastor’ , while  being  interrogated after his arrest , ‘’admitted  defiling  the victim,’’ even  as he  pleaded for  forgiveness’’.

 

 

 

‘’According to him,’’ my family and that  of the victim  are so close , but I   didn’t know, how and why  such  a thing happened  to me,’’ Oyeyemi  quoted him as saying.

 

 

Preliminary investigation , it was revealed  that the suspect  would have been arrested  long ago , but  the mother of the victim frustrated  the move  because  she did not  want to offend  her ‘pastor’.

 

 

However,  as a result of continuous bleeding  from her private part since the incident, which happened  in October 2021, she was  left with no  other option  than to allow the police  to wade in.’’

 

The victim , who claimed that  the ‘Pastor’  was her  first experience of sleeping with  any man, is at present  undergoing medical  attention in  a hospital.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner  of Police in the tate,  Lanre Bankole, has ordered  the transfer  of the case  to the State CID for further  investigation  and possible prosecution.

 

 

 

 

Bankole  warned parents  to desist from the habit  of covering  anyone  who indecently  assaulted  their daughters no matter  how close  they are  to such  persons, saying  they too may  be liable  for prosecution  for compounding felony.
