Police arrests pastor Matthew ‘who raped 19-year-old girl while delivering her from spirit husband’ in Ogun
The police command in Ogun says it arrested Matthew Oladapo, pastor of Life and Power Bible Church, Ogijo over alleged the rape of a 19-year-old girl during a deliverance session.
According to the police, the victim reported that the cleric told her during a church service on Sunday that she had a “spirit husband”.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun police spokesperson, in a statement today, said Oladapo told the girl to subject herself to three nights of fasting and praying in the church for “total deliverance”.
The cleric was also said to have asked the victim to bring N1,000 and anointing oil while coming for the prayer session.
The Ogun police spokesperson said during the first night of the prayer, the pastor took the victim to a room within the church and asked her to remove her clothes.
“The pastor was arrested following a report lodged at Ogijo divisional headquarters by the victim who reported that while attending the church service on the 20th of February 2022, the pastor told her that he saw a vision that she is having a spiritual husband which she needs to be delivered of,” the statement reads.
“She stated further that the pastor told her she will undergo three nights of fasting and prayer in the church for total deliverance.
“In addition, she was asked to come to the church with a N1,000 and anointing oil. But on the first night of the fasting and prayer, she was taken to a room within the church where the pastor ordered her to pull off her clothes and undies and lay down on a piece of cloth on the floor which she obeyed.
“While lying on the floor, the pastor started rubbing the anointing oil on her body and inserted his finger into her private part. When she protested, the pastor pinned her down, covered her mouth and forcefully had sex with her with the claim that it is the only way to break bond between her and the spirit husband.”
