A 30-year-old prophet, Joseph Ogundeji, is in custody for defiling two underaged sisters in Ogun State.

The victims, aged 16 and 13, are members of his church, Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Ajuwon, and whenever they organize a night vigil in the church, the prophet would ask them to stay in his house for the day to break.

According to the victims, the prophet would give them something to lick to make them unconscious and have sex with them. He also threatened to kill them if they disclosed what transpired to anyone.

In a statement on Monday, the State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said that the suspect was arrested on Friday, 11th of November 2022, after it was discovered that the 16-year-old girl was pregnant and the prophet was responsible for her pregnancy.

“The suspect was arrested on the 11th of November 2022, following a complaint lodged at Ajuwon divisional headquarters by the father of the two underage girls, who reported that she discovered that his 16-year-old daughter is pregnant, and when he inquired to know who is responsible for the pregnancy, it was discovered that the prophet is the one who impregnated her.

“Upon the report, the DPO Ajuwon division, SP Andrew Akinseye, detailed his detectives to effect the arrest of the randy prophet. On interrogation, the prophet admitted that he committed the crime.

“In the course of the investigation, it was discovered that the said prophet did not only have carnal knowledge of the 16-year-old girl but her 13-year-old younger sister too was defiled by the same prophet.

“The two victims informed the police that whenever they have vigil in the church, the prophet who lives very close to the church will ask them to go and stay in his house after the vigil, which always comes to an end around 3:00 am. They stated further that anytime they stayed in the prophet’s house, he used to give them something to lick, and after licking it, they would sleep off only to wake up and discover that the prophet had had sex with them.

“When asked why they did not inform their parents, the victims informed the Police that the suspect threatened to kill anyone of them that let the cat out of the bag,” he said.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be transferred to the Anti-human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and possible prosecution.
