Enugu State Police Command has arrested a pastor identified as Timothy Ngwu for allegedly impregnating 20 female members of his ministry.
Timothy Ngwu, who is the general overseer of the Vineyard Ministry of the Holy Trinity, claimed that the Holy Spirit had commanded him to impregnate as many female members of the church as possible.
Speaking on the incident, the Police spokesperson, Ebere Amaraizu said the pastor had been charged for sexual abuse.
“The pastor claims to be obeying spiritual orders to do the will of God, which is to impregnate anyone chosen and revealed by the holy spirit, irrespective of whether the woman is married or not,” said Amaraizu.
‘When the woman delivers, the child is supposed to remain in the ministry with the mother for life,” he added.
It was gathered that the pastor was reported at the police by his own wife who got tired of his behaviour after he also impregnated her young niece.
In his defense, the 53-year-old pastor said he never had sex with any of the married women unless their husbands agreed with the request of the Holy Spirit.
Approximately, he said he has five wives with 13 children along with other concubines he got after the Holy Spirit commanded him to do so.
