A pastor in the state of Edo has been apprehended for defiling four minors between the ages of 6 and 11, three of them siblings who have been put in his care.
The older siblings, nine, and the youngest, six. The pastor gave his name as Otobong Emerson of Believers’ Movement Church Incorporated after being paraded on Friday 8 May at the command of state police.
While talking to newsmen, Otobong said the rape occurred from December 2019 and February 2020. He said an evil spirit guided him to commit the crime, and that he had to confess to his church general overseer because he developed a conscience after having sexually violated the minors many times.
“It happened in my room. I am their pastor. They were given to me to care for. It was my conscience that even made me report myself to my GO.” he said
