Pastor Arrested By Police In Ogun For Defiling Minor

A pastor from the Mega World Healing Ministry, Clinton John, has been taken into custody by men from the Ogun State Police Command in the Ifo Local Government Area of the state on charges of defiling a sixteen-year-old girl.
In a statement released on Saturday night, SP Omolola Odutola, the public relations officer for the state police, said that John had unlawful carnal knowledge of the girl since 2022, when she was just 14 years old.

According to Odutola, the victim informed the police that the 43-year-old Pastor had consistently threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone about the shady relationship.

She added that after receiving treatment for recurrent illnesses, the victim’s family became concerned that their daughter might have been sexually abused and reported the matter to the authorities.

The victim’s frightening behaviors, the police chief claimed, led the parents to suspect that their daughter had engaged in sexual activity while hiding her identity.

The statement partly read,

“A family in Giwa Agbado Ogun State has reported a case of alleged defilement to the Agbado divisional Police Station that their 16-year-old daughter has been repeatedly treated for reoccurring infections, and exhibited frightful tendencies that made the parents suspicious that their daughter may have been involved in sexual intercourse, but concealing the identity of the person.

“The parents persuaded their daughter who later confessed that one Pastor Clinton John ‘m’ aged 43 years old of Mega World Healing Ministry has been fiercely having unlawful carnal knowledge of her since November of 2022.

“The 16-year-old daughter further stated that the Pastor threatened to kill her if she ever revealed the cagey affair to anyone.

During questioning, the suspect confessed to the crime and repeatedly acknowledged having illicit sexual knowledge of the 16-year-old. Medical forms for the victim’s evaluation and treatment have been sent.

Additionally in November, the police said that they were looking for two suspected rapists who had reportedly defiled two juveniles in the Abule-Osho neighborhood in the Olambe section of the Ifo Local Government section of the state and the Isabo neighborhood of Abeokuta.
