It was a shocking confession. The 48-year-old pastor, Nduka Anyanwu, could not hide anymore. On Wednesday, August 26, he told a Yaba Magistrate court that he was responsible for the pregnancy of two teenage sisters.

The rapist, Pastor Nduka Anyanwu, claims to be a Minister at a Lord’s Chosen Church branch in Oshodi. He was said to have had a long sexual relationship with the two sisters, aged 13 and 17, over a lengthy period in the name of casting out evil spirits from them

Anyanwu is facing a two-count charge of defilement.

Following his guilty plea to both charges, the Chief Magistrate Mrs A. Adedayo, 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, aged 17 and 13, respectively, (names withheld), 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.

Unuigbe added that the offences contravene Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. Section 137 stipulates life imprisonment for the offence of defilement of a minor.
