Pastor Okwudili Ozor has been arrested on the orders of Prophetess Gloria Udeh, the G.O of the Great Overcomers Ministry Church in Abaranje, Ikotun, Lagos, over an allegation of adultery and rape, Pmexpress is reporting.
The former assistant pastor in the church was accused of sleeping both with both Udeh and her 15-year old daughter. Trouble started when Prophetess Udeh accused Ozor of forcefully having carnal knowledge of her teenage daughter in January.
Ozor was later arrested and arraigned before Ogba Magistrates’ Court for rape. The Court’s Chief Magistrate, Mrs Davis Abegunde, granted him bail but ordered him remanded in prison pending when he will perfect his bail condition.
Speaking to newsmen, the suspect denied ever sleeping with the teenage girl, but admitted that he had affairs with Prophetess Udeh who felt heartbroken that he dumped her for another woman.
According to him, the woman had been married for some years and had 4 children before she separated from her husband. He said when he joined her church; the prophetess made him her assistant and asked him to marry her so that they can build the church together.
Ozor said he declined the proposal and told her he already had a woman in his village he wanted to marry and this did not go down well with her. "I later went ahead to marry my wife in 2015 and that’s when the trouble started,” he said.
When P.M.EXPRESS contacted Prophetess Udeh, she denied the claim that she was sleeping with Ozor. According to her, the case she reported to the police was that of sexual assault on her daughter.
