Benjamin Omole, a 60-year-old pastor of The Apostolic Church Worldwide, was yesterday remanded in prison custody by an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State for allegedly defiling an 11-year-old girl.

Omole, who is also a teacher at Atunda Olu Special School, Surulere, Lagos and a resident of 4, Oke Orio Close, Ifako-Ijaye, Lagos is facing a one-count charge of unlawful defilement before Magistrate Olufunke Sule-Hamzat.

The charged was preferred against him by the police.

Prosecuting Inspector Benson Emuerhi told the court that the defendant committed the offence on January 16 at Surulere, Lagos.

“I have been handling people with intellectual disability. I have never defiled any of them. I did not defile her.”

Magistrate Sule-Hamzat ordered that he be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the matter till April 8.
