A pastor was caught having sex with a young girl, according to police reports. However, the pastor told police that he just wanted to drive the demons out of the young girl.
Police said that the Pastor of the Zion International Christian Church, which is located in Idah, Kogi State, has been arrested after being accused of impregnating the teenage daughter of a teacher at the church.
The 17-year-old teen Mary, told police that Pastor Kingsley said that she was possessed by demons, and the only way to cure her was through sex.
Police spokesperson Seidu Madawaki said that Pastor Kingsley got into trouble when he made the girl pregnant, and she refused to have an abortion.
The pastor tried to give her a cocktail that would end her pregnancy, but she refused to drink it, the police spokesperson said.
The pastor first met the victim after her father brought her to church on suspicion that she was possessed by a demon.
“He told me that my waist and private parts have been possessed by demons, and that I might not be able to have any children,” Mary said.
“He told me that he will drive out the demons through intercourse and her warned me not to tell anyone,” Mary added.
When the teen became pregnant she told her mother what happened between her and the pastor. The mother filed a complaint with the police, who arrested the pastor.
