A woman , Mrs.
Omotola Akerele, has alleged that her pastor, Mathew Olakunle , had sex with her when she was undergoing spiritual healing in his church , saying the sexual activity later resulted in pregnancy .
Olakunle , who was the head of the Christ Apostolic Church , Oke Itura in Iju town , Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State , was allegedly fond of praying for women in the church without their clothes on .
The 32 - year - old woman , who narrated her ordeal on a programme on Adaba FM Akure, Ondo State , said it was her mother, who is a member of the church , that introduced her to the pastor when she was battling with a severe cough .
Omotola , who was an indigene of the town, narrated that as a result of the sex she had with the pastor, she got pregnant and later aborted the pregnancy without the consent of her husband .
She said , “I had a severe cough and my mother took me to Pastor Olakunle Mathew for prayer in Iju . After praying for me , he said I needed a shaving stick and a handkerchief to perform the spiritual exercise , which I took to him .
“ The pastor told me that he wanted to use my hair to perform some spiritual work that would solve my spiritual problem . On the night of that first day we got there , he asked me to take off my clothes in the presence of my mother to enable him pray for me in the mission house .
“ Since that day , he has been asking me to come for deliverance and when I got there , he would ask me to remove my clothes and lie on the bed. He would lie on me naked and be praying for me .
“ On the seventh day , he shaved the hair of my private part and my armpit hair and put the hair in the white handkerchief . After that , we had sexual intercourse and after the intercourse , he asked me to go and bury the hair in the handkerchief . ”
Omotola added that a month after the sexual intercourse , she was pregnant and aborted it , but her husband later got to know about it and sent her out of the house .
The pastor admitted praying for the women in the church naked , saying God answered prayer faster while praying naked .
He explained that Omotola ’ s case was a spiritual attack and she agreed to undergo the spiritual exercise performed on her in the church .
Olakunle , who said he had been transferred by the C . A . C to another church in Ilorin , Kwara State , however , denied having sexual intercourse with Omotola .
He also denied impregnating her but he confessed to having had sexual relationship with Omotola ’ s younger sister twice and had prayed for their mother too while being naked .
He said , “ On the third day of the spiritual programme, I shaved the hair on her private part and I touched it ( her private part ) with my penis and I told her to be using my penis to rub the entrance of her private part so that she would discharge .
“ After that , I wiped the discharge of her private part with the white handkerchief and I prayed for her , using psalm 24 . After the exercise , I asked her to go and bury the handkerchief in the bush .
“ I asked her to call her husband to do it for her , but she refused. That was why I did it for her ; but I didn ’ t have sex with her . ”
