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, claimed that John had unlawful carnal knowledge of the girl since 2022, when she was just 14 years old.
Odutola stated that the victim told the police that the 43-year-old Pastor had always threatened to kill her if she ever revealed the sordid affair to anyone.
She said the family of the victim reported the incident to the police after being suspicious that their daughter might have been sexually assaulted after being treated for reoccurring infections.
According to the police boss, the victim exhibited frightful tendencies that made the parents suspicious that she might have been involved in sexual intercourse, but concealing the identity of the person.
