Lagos Prophet under fire for alleged rape of minors

Lagos Prophet under fire for alleged rape of minors

For allegedly raping underage children of his members, a prophet Elisa Ayoluwa alias White has been arrested by the police in Lagos.

Ayoluwa, the founder of Zion Prayer and Deliverance Mission in Ikotun, was alleged to have aborted several pregnancies from one of his victims, a 15-year-old girl, with the help of a woman known as Iya Titi.

It was gathered that the man was arrested on Friday morning after a woman whose six-year-old daughter (names withheld) refused pleas from church elders that the matter is swept under carpets.

The Nation gathered that it was the woman who took the case to a Child’s Right Advocate Mrs. Precious Ndukwu who notified the police at Ikotun.

The mother, who spoke to our correspondent on phone, said that the prophet offered her N5, 000 to keep quiet on the incident, adding that other parents accepted the money.

According to the woman, she usually took her child to the church premises to stay with other kids whenever she was going to work.

She said: “I used to have a job that kept me busy. I will leave home early and won’t return till about 11pm.

“So, I usually took her to the prophet’s place and would go and pick her at night. Other children used to come there too to play.

“But along the line, I noticed that whenever I wanted to take her there, she would cry and say she does not want to go.

“I did not know anything was happening to her until one Sunday in church, a member called me aside and she told me to go and check my daughter.

“By this time, rumour has been going around that the prophet was sexually molesting children and teenagers.

“So, I took my daughter to a nurse and she examined her and said she has been penetrated.

“That was how I started asking her questions and she said it was the prophet that he usually molested her and that the day he raped her, he used clothing to clean the blood. She said he even told her not to tell anyone.”

According to Mrs. Ndukwu, the kid was taken to Mirabel Centre at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) after her mother’s complaint and it was established that she has been violated.

She said her findings also revealed that the prophet’s alleged rape of minors was common knowledge in the neighbourhood, wondering why the other parents chose to remain silent about it.

“Upon investigation, we discovered that he has a particular woman known as Iya Titi that helps him abort for a particular child any time she is pregnant. The church members are aware of his behaviour and he has been going around begging each of the child’s parents.

“He has given N5, 000 to the mother of the child that he committed abortion for and she accepted to let peace reign. He remarried recently and so, I don’t know if his new wife was aware before now.

“The parents of the other victims refused to follow us to the police station to make their statement but the mother who refused the money did and the prophet was arrested.

“We expect the police to compel the other parents to come forward and state what they know.

“They need to be made to understand that keep quiet in this matter was a crime and they could be charged as accomplices,” she said.

Police spokesman Bala Elkana confirmed the suspect’s arrest, adding that he denied the allegation.

“The parents of the victim took her to the pastor’s house to be there temporarily when they went out for a programme.

“The act was suspected to have happened during that time. The pastor denied the allegation. We await medical report,” Elkana said.

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
