The Pastor and General Overseer of Zion International Christian Church, Idah, Kogi State, Pastor Kingsley has been arrested for impregnating the teenaged daughter of the church Sunday School’s teacher.
The teenager simply identified as Mary, was told by Pastor Kingsley that she was possessed with demons which could only be exorcised through sex.
According to the state Commissioner of Police, Seidu Madawaki who paraded the suspect before newsmen, Pastor Kingsley landed in troubled water when he impregnated the 18 years old girl, and his attempt to terminate the pregnancy was met with a sharp rebuff.
“After impregnating the girl, he attempted to abort the pregnancy by giving her some liquid substances mixed with olive oil which she refused to drink”, he said.
The victim said she came to join her parent from the village around November last year when the pastor spotted her in the church on the pretext that she had ‘a wild demonic spirit’ in her and then ordered her to see him after the church service for deliverance.
Frightened, she said she went to meet the pastor immediately after the service. “He told me that my waist and private parts have been ravaged by demons and until deliverance was carried out, I may not be able to have any child in life. “The Man of God’ frightened me and said he would only cast out the demons from me through sexual intercourse but he warned me not to tell anybody on the mode of deliverance.
“After praying into an olive oil, he asked me to undress while he rubbed my waist and private parts with the anointing oil mixed with some substances , he then undressed himself and used the same oil on his private part before he descended on me and started to do the thing.”
“But I discovered that I was pregnant last week when my mother noticed my conduct and I had to reveal everything to her even though he warned me not to tell anybody,” She revealed.
However, the 37-year old pastor denied the allegation saying, that all he did was to cast out the demons in her, using the anointing oil
He said that some church members who were envious of his spiritual rise were the one who ganged up against him because his ministry was experiencing ‘exponential growth.’
