A 48-year-old pastor, Nduka Anyanwu, has pleaded guilty to defiling and impregnating two teenage sisters, aged 17 and 13 respectively, before a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
The suspect is facing a two-count charge of defilement. Following his guilty plea to both charges, the Chief Magistrate Mrs A. Adedayo, today, remanded the defendant in a custodial center and adjourned the case to Sept. 15, for facts and sentencing.
Earlier, the Police Prosecutor, ASP Roman Unuigbe, told the court that the defendant committed the offences sometime in June, at Oshodi area of Lagos.
He said that the defendant, who is a Pastor, had slept with the two sisters on several occasions and impregnated them. According to him, the defendant had allegedly defiled the sisters at the church complex, under the pretext of holding prayer sessions with them.
Recall, that the mother of the girls had prevented the police from arresting the culprit on the basis that he was a man of God, but was met with strong opposition from the police and a NGO.
