The Lagos State Police Command, on Wednesday, arraigned a pastor, Nduka Anyanwu, before the state Magistrates’ Court in Yaba for allegedly defiling and impregnating two sisters.
Anyanwu was alleged to have slept with the sisters, aged 17 and 13, on several occasions and impregnated them.
The suspect was arraigned on two counts bordering on defilement before Chief Magistrate A. Adedayo.
He pleaded guilty to the charges.
The prosecutor, Roman Unuigbe, told the court that Anyanwu committed the offences sometime in June 2020 at a church complex in the Oshodi area of the state under the pretext of praying for the victims.
The mother of the victims had tried to prevent the police from arresting the defendant on the grounds that he was a man of God.
According to Unuigbe, the offences contravene Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Following the defendant’s plea, Magistrate Adedayo ordered him to be remanded in custody and adjourned the case till September 15, 2020, for the presentation of facts and sentencing.
