A Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court in Ikeja on Monday heard how a pastor identified as Chris McDouglas allegedly defiled a 17-year-old daughter of a businesswoman in Lagos.
The pastor who presides over Peculiar Generation Assembly Church is facing a nine-count charge bordering on defilement and sexual assault by penetration before Justice Ramon Oshodi.
The mother of the victim in her testimony to the court said that the pastor had sexual intercourse with her daughter on different occasions between 2017 to 2020 under the guise of taking her out for gospel ministration.
She further said that the defendant had sex with the victim at the back of his church, in different hotels and in her house.
“Pastor Mcdouglas would come to my house and ask my daughter to follow him for ministration so as to use her talent as a chorister to bless others.
“According to my daughter, he would branch to a hotel and have sex with her.
“When I confronted him with some leaders in the church, he said he was deceived by the devil and pleaded with me to forgive him.”
She said when confronted, the defendant cried and blamed it on the devil.
The suspect however pleaded not guilty to the charges
Justice Ramon Oshodi adjourned the case until February 8 for continuation of trial.
