A fifty-three-year-old Protestant pastor was arrested by police for having impregnated several married women and several young girls. The man, Timothy Ngwu, justified himself by explaining to the police that the Holy Spirit in person had told him to sexually abuse his faithful.

crossThe incident came to light after a complaint by the pastor’s ex-wife, who abandoned her husband because of his behaviour. She filed a complaint with the police, accusing the man of numerous rapes and having abused even minor girls, therefore asking the agents to investigate the religious community founded by Ngwo after being expelled from the Catholic Church.

The priest defended himself by claiming that his actions were guided by God, and there would have been no violence because all relationships would have been consenting, and in the case of married women also husbands would have given their approval.
