The suspects were said to be within the age bracket of 13 and 17.
According to the NSCDC spokesman, AYoola Michael, the suspect, specialises in harassing and sexually assaulting minors and has been under the surveillance of the command following several complaints about his activities.
“Investigation revealed that the suspect is the General Overseer of Divine Land of Joy Prayer Ministry located in Agah and has sexually assaulted several members of the church, as reported by the victims.”
“One of the victims, Joy Godfrey, who bravely reported the case, revealed horrifying details of her ordeal. She disclosed that the suspect lured her into an unfamiliar house in Sango and sexually assaulted her.
“Additionally, he compelled her to swear with the Bible and instructed her never to discuss the incident with anyone, threatening her with fatal consequences if she dared to speak about it.
“The Second Victim who suffered similar abuse (Name Withheld) also revealed that the suspect started having carnal knowledge with her at the age of sixteen(16).
“She further disclosed that the suspect impregnated her and gave her drugs to abort the baby, resulting in severe bleeding that lasted for several months. The suspect threatened to kill her if she reveals their illicit relationship to anyone”, he said
Ayoola said, “According to the third victim (Name-Withheld),  who is also a member of the church, the suspect defiled her at the age of 13 but she couldn’t report to her mother  because of his threat that she would die if she exposed him to anyone.”
He said the suspect confessed to the crime, attributing it to the work of the devil.
