Prophet Adeniran was said to be dating the mother of his victim, a 15-year-old Senior Secondary 2 pupil at Saje High School, Abeokuta, Ogun State too.

The Ogun state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the prophet was arrested on Saturday, following a complaint from the girl’s mother.

Oyeyemi said, “Trouble started when the complainant noticed that her daughter is pregnant and mounted pressure on her to disclose who is responsible for the pregnancy.

“The mother, who could not believe what she heard, reported to the police, prompting the Divisional Police Officer, Adigbe division, Onatufeh Omoh, a Superintendent of Police, to detail detectives to effect the arrest of the randy shepherd.”

He said the victim told the police that the suspect deflowered her on her birthday after he lured her into his car and forcefully had sex with her.

Oyeyemi said Prophet Adeniran subsequently slept with the teenage girl and got her pregnant, adding that the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to Anti- Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
