A Magistrate Court sitting in Ilorin, Kwara State has remanded a pastor identified as Makanjuola Olabisi for allegedly defiling three biological sisters in the state capital.
A police report revealed that the pastor defiled the sisters after convincing them to become members of his church, Revolutionary Insight Church, located at Agba Dam, Ilorin sometime in 2018.
It was gathered that Olabisi invited the eldest sister for prayers after she declined his proposal to be his lover. He allegedly r#ped her and her two siblings at different times.
“When the complainants (victims) discovered that the pastor has been taking s3xual advantage of them, they stopped attending the church and the development made the pastor to threaten that calamity would befall them.”
The court refused to take the plea of the accused person, after the police prosecutor, Inspector Matthew Ologbonsaye, informed the court of a motion exparte attached to the charges, urging it to remand the pastor pending the outcome of the legal advice from the state Director of Public Prosecution in the state Ministry of Justice.
Magistrate Fatimah Salihu who noted that the court lacks jurisdiction to take the pastor’s plea, ordered that he be taken to the Federal Correctional Facility, Ilorin, pending the receipt of advice from the DPP.
The case was adjourned till September 14, 2022 for further mention in court.
