Founder and leader of Power Bible Church, Mathew Oladapo has reportedly been arrested for sexually assaulting a teen member of his church during a so-called deliverance service.
A statement from the police, releaded by spokesperson Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Wednesday, February 23, said the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Ogijo divisional headquarters by the victim.
According to the statement, “She reported that the Pastor told her during the church Sunday service on February 20, 2022, that he saw a vision that she is having a spiritual husband which she needs to be delivered of.
And that she will undergo three nights of fasting and prayer in the church for total deliverance. She was also asked to come to the church with N1,000 notes and anointing oil. But on the first night of the fasting and prayer, she was taken to a room within the church where the pastor ordered her to pull off her clothes and undies and lay down on a piece of cloth on the floor which she obeyed.
While lying on the floor, the Pastor started rubbing the anointing oil on her body and inserted his finger into her private part. When she protested, the pastor pinned her down, covered her mouth and forcefully had s#x with her with the claim that it is the only way to break the bond between her and the spirit husband.”
