A randy prophet has been caught for raping and impregnating a teenage girl he was supposed to deliver from spiritual bondage.

The self-professed prophet was said to have done the unholy act to the 16-year-old while delivering her

It was gathered that the mother of the young girl (name withheld)  took her to the prophet for deliverance.

The accused was said to have taken the victim to a river, bathed her before taking her to a hotel. 

The accused allegedly raped the girl and threatened to kill her if she told anyone of what transpired between them

The girl later fell sick and was taken to the hospital where it was confirmed that she was pregnant.

Upon interrogation from her mother, she opened up and told her mother that the prophet had canal knowledge of her when she went for deliverance.

The case was reported at the police station and the prophet was subsequently arrested.

When the case was brought to court on Tuesday, the prosecutor, Inspector. Clifford Ogu said the offence contravened Section 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Chief Magistrate Taiwo Akanni granted the accused N300,000 bail with two sureties in like sum.

She ruled that the case file be duplicated and sent to the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPPs) for legal advice. Akanni adjourned the case to April 5 when she hoped to have received the DPPs’ advice.
