A 15-year-old girl, identified only as Mary, has named her pastor to be the father of her unborn child. Mary allegedly said the pastor violated her inside his car on her birthday and continued to have sex with her until she became pregnant.
The said pastor, Michael Adeniran, is the founder of El-Bethel Parish of the Celestial Church of Christ. Adeniran is also said to Mary’s mother’s lover.
The lid was blown off Adeniran’s deed when Mary’s mother realised she had been put in family way. Upon questioning, Mary confessed she had been having sexual affair with Adeniran. Mary’s mother reported the matter to the police, leading to Adeniran’s arrest on Saturday, November 5.
The Ogun Police said the matter is currently handled by its Anti- Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit for further investigation.
“The Commissioner of Police also reiterated his earlier warning to parents to always keep an eye on their children in order to prevent them from becoming victims in the hands of people with devilish intentions,” said Oyeyemi, spokesperson for Ogun Police.
