A pastor is now in police custody for allegedly forcing himself on a nineteen-year-old girl in his church while carrying out deliverance on the teenager.
His name, Mathew Oladapo, oversees the Life and Power Bible Church, Ogijo, in Ogun State, where the teenager (name withheld) subsequently relayed the crime to the police division in the area.
Before the incident transpired, it was gathered that the acclaimed man of God prophesied the young lady was betrothed to a spiritual husband and he would need to free her from his grasp.
Also, it was learnt that the pastor asked the young girl to provide a thousand naira note and a bottle of anointing oil within three nights where she would have to pray and fast for the period for complete deliverance from her spiritual entanglement.

Spokesperson to the Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, spoke with journalists and revealed that “On the first night of the fasting and prayer, the woman was taken to a room within the church where the pastor ordered her to pull off her clothes and undies and lay down on a piece of cloth on the floor which she obeyed.”
He reportedly applied the oil on every part of her body and proceeded to insert his finger in her private part. She attempted to remove his hands when he suddenly forcefully penetrated without her consent.
