Ogun Prophet Defile Sisters
The command spokesman, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, said the prophet impregnated one of the victims while perpetrating the crime.
Oyeyemi said the two teenage sisters were members of Ogundeji’s church, adding that policemen arrested the prophet after the victims’ father lodged a complaint at the Ajuwon Police Station.
According to the father, when he inquired to know who is responsible for his daughter’s pregnancy, it was discovered that Ogundeji is the one who impregnated her.
He said “Upon the report, the DPO Ajuwon Division, SP Andrew Akinseye, detailed detectives to arrest 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 a carnal knowledge of the 16-year-old girl, but her 13-years-old younger sister was also defiled by the same prophet.
“The two victims informed the police that whenever they had a 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 usually comes to an end around 3am.”
Oyeyemi said the victims 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 discover that the prophet had had sex with them.
“When asked why they didn’t inform their parents, the victims informed the police that the suspect threatened to kill any of them that let the cat out of the bag,” Oyeyemi said.
The PPRO noted that the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had directed that the suspect be transferred to the Anti Human Trafficking and Child Labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation and possible prosecution.
KanyiDaily had also reported how a 24-year-old man, Usman Hassan, was arrested for allegedly defiling a 10-year-old girl after luring her with N30 into an uncomplicated building in Borno State.
