Police Arraign Pastor For Alleged Sexual Abuse (VIDEO Included)

A pastor of a new generation church in Nyanya, Abuja, was yesterday arraigned by the police before an Abuja Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Karu for allegedly molesting young female members of his church.

Pastor Basil Princewill, the general overseer of Mountain Movers Fire Ministries International, Nyanya, Abuja, was arraigned with Ms Paulyn Ode, the church’s coordinator on charges of alleged conspiracy, criminal impersonation, criminal intimidation, and criminal force and assault.

The pastor was accused of having carnal knowledge of two 14-year-old female members of the church under pretences of offering prayers for them in July, 2011 and later aborted the pregnancy of one the girls this year at the Fountain Health Clinic, Nyanya, Abuja after telling doctors he is her father.

According to the charge, which was transferred from the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) where parents of the victims lodged initial complaints, the pastor also impersonated as a lawyer with an LL.B certificate.

When the charges were read to the accused persons, they denied the allegations and their counsel, Uchenna Anayo, applied for their bail which was opposed by Police counsel Oyewusi Abiola.

Magistrate Ahmed Shuaibu ruled in favour of the defence and granted bail to the accused persons in the sum of N2 million with two sureties in like sums.

The sureties, he also said, must be civil servants of not below grade level 14 and must have a property in Abuja valued at not less than N5 million.

The magistrate adjourned the case to July 25 for hearing.

    There should be an objective, independent, dispassionate investigation into this. There are two sides to this obviously ugly story. There are very many fake Pastors and evil men parading as “men of God.” It is now near impossible to knew who is who about the so called “men of God” But on the other hand, there are very many mischievous, malignant and devilish machinations and evil plots and wickedness going on against very many innocent people in Nigeria today, and of course all over the world. This is what drove great musicians, ChakaDemus and the Pliers to ask the question: why are people so bad-minded? As the raga icons put it, “if you try to get to the top, they will try to see you drop; even when you do not try at all, they will still try to see you fall” people are really bad-minded. It is this bad mind that is the bane of our daily lives in Nigeria. Bad peopl everywhere. Some Bad Pastors on the one hand, and very many people trying to pull the few good Pastors down on the other hand.

    The “pastor” has to be thouroughly investigated and if found guilty be dealt with according to the law.
