In Lagos, the sexual offence and domestic violence Court on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, sentenced a pastor, Nduka Anyanwu, to double life imprisonment for defiling and impregnating two biological sisters in a church complex.
The convict who claims to be a Minister at a Lord's Chosen Church branch in Oshodi, raped the minors over a lengthy period in the name of casting out evil spirits from them.
Justice Abiola Soladoye convicted the Lagos-based pastor of impregnating the 13-year-old and a 17-year-old sisters, both of whom have been delivered of babies.
The judge who held that evidence of prosecution witnesses were believable and consistent, described the convict as morally bankrupt. The judge said that the police ought to have charged the parents of the victims and survivors alongside the convict.
She described the parents as irresponsible, saying that they encouraged the survivors to get defiled by the defendant.
On several occasions, one of the survivors went back to the parents to complain about the conduct of the defendant. She was beaten and sent back to the defendant?s home.
"The prosecution has proved the ingredients of the offences against the morally-bankrupt defendant," she said.
According to Lagos State Government, Anyanwu committed the offences on August 3, 2020, on Arowojobe Street, Oshodi.
