A Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) pastor in Nigeria’s Ondo State has been arrested for allegedly having inconsistent sexual intercourse with a 16-year-old girl in Abusoro, Ijoka of Akuri.
Josiah Akinsuyi, who was transferred to the said church just last year was busted after a complaint was filed after the 16 year old girl confessed to her father that she has been pregnant for four months.
The Ondo State Commandant of the NSCDC, Pedro Awili reportedly told newsmen that the victim and her parents were taking refuge in the church building. The pastor contracted the victim’s elder sister to coax her for him.
“Our investigation revealed that the pastor has been sleeping with the young girl for some time. A pregnancy test had been conducted which confirmed that the girl is four months pregnant. We also discovered that one of the elder sisters of the girl knew about the whole development.”
“It was gathered that the young girl rejected the Akinsuyi overtures the first time he talked to the girl but her elder sister intervened, urging the pastor and she has been sleeping with her since then”
“The young girl said the man has been sleeping with her in the classroom of one private school owned by Pastor Akinsuyi’s wife. Though the pastor denied having any intercourse with the girl,” Pedro Awili told newsmen.
However, Pastor Akinsuyi has denied the allegation, claiming it was deliberately orchestrated to denigrate his hard earned reputation.
