The Ogun State Police Command has arrested the founder of El-Bethel Parish of Celestial Church of Christ, Itaaka Abeokuta, Dr. Michael Adeniran, for allegedly impregnating a 15-year-old girl, Punch reports.
It was gathered that the little girl in question is a Senior Secondary 2 pupil at Saje High School, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The Ogun state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the prophet was arrested on Saturday, following a complaint from the mother of the girl, is allegedly the suspect’s lover, and a member of the church.
Oyeyemi, an Assistant Superintendent of Police said, “Trouble started when the complainant noticed that her daughter is pregnant and mounted pressure on her to disclose who is responsible for the pregnancy.
“The mother, who could not believe what she heard, reported to the police, prompting the Divisional Police Officer, Adigbe division, Onatufeh Omoh, a Superintendent of Police, to detail detectives to effect the arrest of the randy shepherd.”
Explaining how the suspect lured the little girl before having s*x with her, the police said the prophet took the little girl into his car on the day she marked her birthday and forcefully disvirgined her, and had subsequently been having s*x with her.
Oyeyemi added that the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to Anti- Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
“The CP also reiterated his earlier warning to parents to always be watchful of their children in order to prevent them from becoming victims in the hands of people with devilish intention,” Oyeyemi said.
He said the suspect would be charged to court as soon as the investigation was concluded.
