The Ogun Police Command has apprehended a 43-year-old pastor, Clinton John, on charges of defiling a 16-year-old girl (identity withheld) in the Agbado area of the state.

This development was disclosed by SP Omolola Odutola, the command’s spokesperson, in a statement issued to journalists in Ota on Saturday.

According to Ms. Odutola, the family residing in Giwa Agbado reported the alleged defilement at the Agbado Divisional Police Station. The family had become alarmed due to their daughter’s recurring infections and unusual behavior, prompting suspicions of possible involvement in sexual activities.

The parents, concerned about their daughter’s health, engaged in persuading her to disclose the identity of the perpetrator. Eventually, the victim confessed that Pastor John from Mega Healing Ministry had been sexually assaulting her since November 2022. Disturbingly, the young girl revealed that the pastor had threatened to harm her if she ever disclosed the illicit affair.

“Their daughter further stated that the pastor threatened to kill her if she ever revealed the cagey affair to anyone,” added the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO).

Upon interrogation, the suspect, Pastor Clinton John, admitted to the crime, acknowledging his unlawful acts against the girl.

In response to this incident, the rape survivor has been provided with medical forms for necessary treatment and examination. Meanwhile, the suspect is set to be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Eleweran, Abeokuta, for a thorough investigation.

This case brings to light the disturbing nature of the alleged actions, as the community grapples with the shock of such a betrayal of trust by a person in a position of authority and responsibility.
