Celestial Pastor Accused Of R@ping, K#lling 19yr-old Girl Seeking Prosperity In Ondo
A Celestial Church of Christ pastor in Ondo State, Omotayo Valentine Akingbesote has been accused of killing a 19-year-old girl identified as Loveth who was one of his church members.
According to reports gathered, the incident occurred in the Igunshin area of Ondo West Local Government Area of the State.
It was reported that the 65-year-old cleric allegedly gave the deceased a drug known as “Largactil” to swallow for her to live a long and prosperous life.
“She went to the pastor’s church for the first time to pray for long life and to have a good job, so that she could take care of her siblings because she didn’t want to die young like her mother.
As she was praying in the church, the pastor’s wife came to meet her and said daddy was not at home and that she would inform him she visited the church for consultation.
“Fortunately, when the pastor came back, he sent for her. The house is just a pole away from the church and he prayed for her and asked me to come the following day.
The next day, she went to the Church to see the pastor and he gave her the drug called ‘Largactil’ to use. He said he had already prayed on it and that it would make her prosper and make it in life,” a source told reporters.
“Later, the pastor took her to a bed in the church, laid her on it, removed her underwear and slept with her using the advantage that she was weak. A few hours later, he took her to the road leading to her house where she managed to get home.
Since then, she only woke up, ate and slept again for four days. By the time she came out of drowsiness on the fourth day, one white thing had covered her eyes and she could not see. She was on the sick bed till she gave up the ghost.”
Police Public Relations Officer in Ondo State, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, said the accused pastor is currently facing interrogation from detectives.
She added that the murder case would be transferred to police headquarters in Akure where the investigation would commence fully.
