Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command say they have arrested one Pastor Peter Taiwo of Christ Apostolic Bible church, Alaja Oke, Saje, Abeokuta, and his wife, Elizabeth for allegedly conniving together to defile a 16- year- old choir member of the church(name withheld).

Crime report from the command indicated that they were arrested on Friday 10th of December 2021.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi said the pastor and his wife were arrested, following a complaint lodged at Adatan Divisional headquarters of the command by the victim.

He explained that the victim had reported that, while she went to the church for choir practice, the pastor’s wife called her and told her to go and meet the pastor in their room because the pastor wanted to send her on an errand.

Oyeyemi added, “She stated further that as soon as she got into the room, the pastor’s wife locked the door from outside, consequent upon which the pastor overpowered her, and forcefully had sex with her.

“She explained further that the pastor’s wife later came in after her husband has satisfied himself and met her crying and she told her to stop crying as she is now a woman, she then warned her never to tell anybody or else she will die.”

Acting on the report, the state police spokesman said the Divisional Police Officer,  Adatan, SP Salaudeen Abiodun, quickly detailed crack detectives to the scene, where the randy pastor and his wife were promptly apprehended.

He said during interrogation, the couple  confessed to the crime but blamed the devil for it, while they also pleaded for forgiveness from the victim.

‘The victim has been taken to  hospital by the police for medical treatment, “he said.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the transfer of the suspects to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation, with the view to charging them to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
