The teenage girl reportedly fell victim to Onyekachukwu after he offered to house her following the demise of her parents in 2018, a co-habitation, the ‘pastor’ from hell used to perpetrate her interior motive, the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, said in a statement it released.
NAPTIP also instigated Onyekachukwu’s arrest, an incident that hit the headlines and has drawn the comment of MFM authorities in which the church denied that the suspect was a pastor, and announced his suspension among others.
The statement credited to the Regional Overseer of MFM in Gwarimpa Region, Pastor Niyi Babalola, reads in part: “He is not an ordained pastor in Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries. He is just a member/worker in that Life Camp branch and he has been suspended from the branch immediately.
“The church cannot stop the law from taking its course as doing so will amount to condoning evil and being an accessory after the fact. After investigation, we confirm that the raping and impregnating of the girl is true and the matter is currently being handled by the Police.
“However, we want to say that the alleged person is not an ordained Pastor or an officially appointed Pastor in MFM Gwarimpa Region. This is, therefore, a personal issue between the Brother and the innocent victim.
“It has nothing to do with Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries.”
