Prominent Pastor jailed for defiling male children
A pastor with one of the white garment churches in Ogun State, Waleola Sunday, has been sentenced to three years imprisonment without an option of fine by an Akure Chief Magistrates’ Court for defiling male children in his neighbourhood.
Waleola, who is employed as a Prophet in the church in Okearo Street in Akure, has the penchant for seducing male students and playing with their genitals.
Although he was arraigned for the first time for the heinous crime, Waleola, however, disclosed that he was not committing the offence for the first time.
In his confessional statement presented in the court, the 32-year-old Prophet said he had defiled more than four male students before the men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), arrested him earlier in the month.
He also revealed that he normally goes to public schools during break hours, approaches the male students and seduces them.
According to him, he would take them into the nearest bush to carry out his action after which he would allow the students to go back to their classes.
Waleola, who blamed the act on the devil, said that he did not know what usually come over him when he was molesting his victims. He added that he would come to his senses after he must have completed the act.
In his ruling, the Chief Magistrate of the court sentenced him to three years in prison without an option of fine.
