The Police in Ogun have arrested Timothy Oluwatimilehin, the pastor of Spirit Filled International Christian Church, Olumore, Abeokuta for turning a housewife and her two daughters into sex slaves.
Oluwatimilehin had lured the housewife along with her two daughters away from her husband’s home. He kept all in his house.
He regularly had sex with them, Ogun Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi said in a statement.
The Pastor took advantage of the misunderstanding between the woman and her husband to carry out his sexual acts.
Oluwatimilehin was arrested following a complaint lodged at Adatan Police Division by the husband of the victim.
According to the police spokesperson, the husband, accompanied by an official of the Ministry of Women Affairs, had told the police that his wife and two daughters were lured by the pastor of their church, who took them into his custody.
He had since been having sex with both the mother and her daughters.
“Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Adatan Division, Abiodun Salau, detailed his detectives to effect the arrest of the randy clergyman.
“On interrogation, the pastor confessed to the commission of the crime but pleaded for forgiveness.
“In his confession, he explained that he took advantage of little misunderstanding between the woman and her husband to carry out the devilish act.”
The PPRO said the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has directed the anti-human trafficking and child labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department to take over the case.
He also ordered diligent investigation, with a view to charge the suspect to court as soon as possible.
