A 30 years old prophet of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ajuwon, Joseph Ogundeji has been arrested by men of Ogun state Police Command for defiling two under-age sisters who are members of his church.
The suspect was arrested on the 11th of November 2022, following a complaint lodged at Ajuwon divisional headquarters by the father of the two underage girls.
A statement by the command’s spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said that the father reported that when he discovered that his 16 years old daughter was pregnant and enquired who was responsible, he found out that it was the prophet.
Upon the report, the DPO Ajuwon division, SP Andrew Akinseye was said to have 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 have carnal knowledge of the 16 years old girl, but also violated her 13 years old younger sister.
“The two victims informed the police that whenever they had vigil in the church, the prophet who lives very close to the church, would ask them to go and stay in his house after the vigil which always comes to an end around 3 am. They stated further that anytime they stayed in the prophet’s house, he used to give them something to lick, and after licking it, they would sleep off only to wake up and discovered that the prophet had had sex with them.
“When asked why they did not 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.”
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be transferred to the anti human trafficking and child labour unit of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and possible prosecution.
