A 53-year-old pastor from Nigeria has impregnated more than 20 women which include a sum of married women and young girls who are a part of his congregation and claims that the Holy Spirit told him to have sex with them.
It is reported that the Nigerian pastor has been arrested for sexual abuse.
Ebere Amaraizu, a spokesman for the Enugu State Police Command told the general overseer NaiJ of the Ministry that Pastor Timothy Ngwu was arrested for sexually abusing his female members and followers.
“The pastor claims to be obeying prophetic/spiritual injunction to do the will of God, which is to impregnate any one chosen and revealed by the Holy Spirit, irrespective of whether the woman is married or not,” said Amaraizu.
“When the woman is delivered of the baby, the child remains in the ministry with the mother for life,” he added.
According to a Vanguard report, it was Veronica Ngwu who turned in her husband to the police after he had impregnated her young niece who was a part of the congregation.
It is reported that a brother of the pastor had warned him and his family about his behavior for a very long time but Pastor Ngwu ignored his brother’s warnings. The arrest, he said, was God’s wrath falling on his brother.
“Let me tell you, God’s anger has befallen my brother, we have severally appealed to him to stop what he was doing but he refused. He has colonized our compound, bearing children with recklessness. He accused us of being jealous of him because he is doing the will of God,” the brother told Vanguard.
“Look at these buildings here,” he said pointing to the church compound. “He (pastor) has converted all of them to himself in the name of vineyard. I can’t say exactly what informed his spirit to the devilish act in the name of God. He sacked his betrothed wife who has three children for him and embarked on impregnating married women and young girls. Look at the whole compound littered with children of different sex and age,” he continued.
“How can an educated man of his status reason like an unrefined man? All members of the vineyard are fools, how can a woman abandon her husband for another man in the name of worshiping God and practice adultery? I cannot get myself involved in this matter; Vero has opened the vessel of worms in the vineyard. Let them sort themselves out with the police but I want the ministry to be shut down completely,” the brother added.
Ngwu told his overseer that he has five wives with 13 children along with concubines he acquired by the prophetic will of God the Holy Spirit.
Ngwu then goes on to say that he did not have sex with any of the married women unless their husbands agreed with the request that the Holy Spirit was making.
Calista Omeje and Assumpta Odo, are two of the many women that have their husbands to live with the pastor and bare him children, they say that they left their husbands based on the pastor’s prophetic anointing.
Calista, who has 10 children with her husband, said Ngwu had impregnated her but they had lost the baby through death. Calista also revealed that she gave her daughter to him. Odo, who is a mother of eight, said Ngwu impregnated her and her daughter.
