A suspected fake Prophet, Joseph Ogundeji has been nabbed by the police over alleged defilement of female kids.
Ogundeji, a 30-year-old Prophet of Cherubim and Seraphim Church Ajuwon, Ogun State, was arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly violating two under age sisters who are members of his church.
Report has it that the suspect was arrested on Friday last week, precisely on November 11, 2022, after a complaint was lodged at Ajuwon Divisional Headquarters of the Nigeria Police by the father of the two underage girls.
He was said to have reported that he discovered that his 16 years old daughter was pregnant, and when he inquired to know who is responsible for the pregnancy, it was discovered that the prophet was the one who impregnated her.
Upon the report, the DPO Ajuwon Division, SP Andrew Akinseye, ordered the arrest of the prophet.
A Police source said: “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 carnal knowledge of the 16-year-old girl, but her 13 years old younger sister too was defiled by the same prophet.”
The two victims, the source added, informed the Police that whenever they have vigil in the church, the prophet who lives very close to the church will ask them to go and stay in his house after the vigil which always comes to an end around 3 a.m. They stated further that anytime they stay in the Prophet’s house, he used to give them something to lick, and after licking it, they will sleep off only to wake up and discovered that the prophet had had sex with them.
The victims could not inform their parents because the prophet threatened to kill any of them who reports the matter to their parents.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has consequently directed the transfer of the suspect to anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the state Criminal Investigation Department for necessary action.
