Men of Ogun police command have arrested one prophet Ebenezer Ajigbotolwa, Founder and General Overseer of the Church of Lord, Olomore Abeokuta for defiling and impregnating two under age sisters (names withheld).
DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) disclosed this in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Sunday.
According to the PPRO, the suspect was arrested following a report by the mother of the victims who reported at Lafenwa police station.
“The mother said she fell sick sometimes in 2018 and was taken the church for spiritual healing.
“She stated further that the pastor took advantage of her sickness and asked her entire family of six to move into the church premises to avoid being afflicted with the same sickness.
“There and then, the prophet started having sex with her daughters of 16years and 13 years of age unknown to her.
” The pastor impregnated the two under age girls and went on to procure abortion for them in a private clinic.
“Aside from this, the prophet also defrauded the family of N2million cash which he took for what he called spiritual cleansing.
“Upon the report, the DPO Lafenwa division , CSP Muraina Ayilara, led his men to the church but the place has been deserted.
“The CP then directed that the suspect be hunted for and brought to book. In compliance with the CP’s directive, the DPO and his men embarked on intelligence and technical based investigation, and their efforts paid off when the prophet was arrested on the 6th of August 2020 at about 5 am.
“On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of most of the allegations leveled against him and that it was the reason why he ran away when he heard that police are looking for him.
“Recovered from his home are assorted dangerous charms,” he said.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun has ordered the suspect to be transferred to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for discreet investigation.
Ajogun warned those hiding under the umbrella of religion to perpetrate evils to desist from it or meet their waterloo.
The CP therefore appealed to members of the public to beware of those wolves in sheep skin masquerading as men of God as they were out to milk them dry before destroying their lives.
