Prophet Nabbed Over Defilement Of Church Member’s Daughter
The pastor of Fountain of
Liberation Church, Prophet Wisdom Okoronkwo, has been arrested by men of the
Lagos State Police Command for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl in the
Ikotun area of the state.
It was gathered that the victim
was living with the pastor on the instructions of her mother, who is a member
of the church.
The pastor was said to have taken
advantage of the situation to allegedly defile the victim.
The victim’s uncle, who
identified himself simply as Philip, said after she informed him of the
incident, he reported the case to a non-governmental organization, the Esther
Child Rights, in Ikotun.
Speaking with newsmen, the victim
said her mother forced her to live with the pastor, whom she alleged started
sexually abusing her two weeks after she moved in with him.
The victim’s mother, who gave her
name only as Chinyere, said her daughter was framing the prophet, adding that
she instructed her to live with him, because she was troublesome.
A representative of the NGO,
Esther Ogwu, said the prophet was detained at the command headquarters in
Ikeja, Lagos, adding that a medical test would be conducted on the victim at
the Mirabel Centre.
When contacted the state Police
Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said a message had been sent to the
gender unit of the command, adding that he would revert after being briefed
about the incident, but had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.
