Pastor Timi Adigun finally speaks up on allegations of sexual molestation
Pastor Timi Adigun of MINE Teenage Ministry has reacted allegations made against him that he sexually assaulted a number of the teenagers in his care.
Some days ago, reports went viral on Twitter that Adigun, who is the leader of The Ark Church, was involved in inappropriate sexual acts with his female teenage members for years.
The teenage ministry, an offshoot of his church, encourages sexual purity and even has an annual “virginity day”.
However, while teaching them about sexual purity, he was not exactly practicing what he preached.
The married pastor was also accused of molesting those who lived with him for more than 5 years.
They claimed that he started the “Father Me” series where he encouraged young ones to submit to fatherhood, only for him to use that as a cover to allegedly molest those girls who took him as a father.
The Ministry made these accusations on Twitter via its official Twitter handle, then claimed that his wife, Timilehin Adigun was aware of his actions and was “complicit”.
Public relations expert, Akan Imoh, who lives close to the church in Lagos, claimed that he confirmed the allegations after investigating alongside two other journalists.
In the Facebook post that went viral, he also claimed that Mr Adigun was nonchalant about their findings.
Pastor Timi Adigun has now admitted to the allegations via an apology letter he shared on Instagram.
He said he is “deeply sorry” to everyone his “actions and inactions have hurt”.
He added: “The truth is, I was involved in inappropriate behaviour with females over a couple of years.”
Below is his apology:
