Yesterday Wednesday the 8th, a medical doctor, Mrs Sekinat Oredoyin told an Ikeja High Court how one Prophet Olushola Akinsipe allegedly defiled a 13-year-old visually-impaired girl on the pretext of praying for her.
Oredoyin, a public health physician at Yaba Local Council Development Area, made the disclosure when she was led in evidence by the state counsel, Mr Michael Adewoye.
According to her, the victim narrated how the defendant, the pastor of Power of the Home Deliverance Ministry, had forceful sexual intercourse with her on five different occasions.
“The survivor and her father were referred from Owutu Police Station. They came into the facility at about 2:36 pm, and the survivor complained of forceful penetration.
“The survivor is a visually-impaired child, and her father took her to the defendant for deliverance.
She said the defendant gave her an unknown substance to drink and after that, she could not remember anything, but she was able to narrate to her father after he discovered a brownish discharge under her pant and interrogated her.”
Dr Oredoyin further told the court that the victim had hyper-pigmentation around her face and some marks on her waist which resulted from injuries she sustained during the deliverance.
“The survivor said that the defendant beat her with banana leaves during the deliverance and also scrubbed her back with salt.
“The medical examination findings were in keeping with forceful vagina penetration. The blood samples showed pregnancy test was negative but because of the sore on her body, I directed her to Domestic Sexual Violence Agency for counselling.
