Pastor, 1 other arraigned over gender violence

A 52-year-old pastor, Samson Ajayi, and one Jamiyu Jejelaye (36) have been arraigned before an Ado-Ekiti magistrate’s court over gender-based violence on one Nifemi Ajayi.

Police prosecutor, Inspector Bamikole Olasunkanmi, told the court Monday that the pastor sometime in March, 2021, at his church, Erigorah Gospel Church, Anaye, Ikere-Ekiti, caused Nifemi Ajayi, who claimed to be a virgin, to carry pure water in her hand and distribute to every member of the church which conduct was to be detrimental to Nifemi’s physical and psychological well-being.

Counsels to the defendants, Barrister O. J. Abiola for first the defendant, and Barrister Iyanu Obamuwagun for the second defendant, urged the court to grant bail to their clients, saying they would not jump bail.

The Magistrate, Abdulhamid Lawal, granted them bail of N100,000 each, with two sureties in like sum and adjourned to September 15, 2021.
