September 6, 2016 – Randy Pastor Arrested For Sexually Assaulting Underage Girls Denied Bail

The founder of Tongues of Fire Restoration Ministry, Sogunle, Lagos, Pastor Chukwuemeka Nkwocha, was arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court yesterday for grievous assaults and defilement of 13 young girls. Nkwocha, however, was denied bail by the magistrate, B. O. Osunsanmi.

This was sequel to the bail application by the defence counsel, A. K. Olajuka, seeking bail for the accused on liberal terms. Osunsanmi described the offence as highly grievous which needs the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

According to her, the case should be referred to the High Court. Nkwocha allegedly committed the offence between 2014 and August 30, 2016 at No. 5, Omolade Street, Oshodi in the Lagos Magisterial District.

According to the charge sheet, Nkwocha did abduct the teenagers without their consent and thereby committed the offence punishable under Section 266 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2011.

The 13 girls are identified as Adedeji Mosadoluwa (19), Glory Friday (12), Millicent Chukwu (13), Okeke Chiamaka (16), Nwadocheli Precious (13), Ada Akwarandu (13), Emmanuel Faith (17) and Anyaoha Chidera (14). Others are Chinecherem John (16), Etoh Adanne (18), Precious Amarachi (16), Audu Promise (15) and 13-year-old Chinecherem Odozor.

Nkwocha was arraigned on a fourcount charge bothering on sexual harassment, assault, defilement and procurement of noxious drugs with intent to defile.

Meanwhile, the defence counsel, Olajuka, laid his bail application on the grounds that the prosecutor, Inspector Simon Imhowua, had over-exaggerated the matter and thereby not provided substantive evidence to buttress the case.

Olajuka protested that one of the acclaimed victims was a cousin to the pastor and that the pastor had a charity organisation which had been catering for the girls in the past four years. He said the girls were neither abducted nor held against their will.

The counsel added that he would not want to state the antecedent of the case but pleaded that it was in the judicial prerogative of Her Lordship to grant bail.

On the contrary, Imhowua said although the defence had applied for bail, the grave implication of the case should not be overlooked and the bail conditions should not be on liberal terms.

The Investigating Police Officer (IPO), Idowu Akande, said all the victims were discovered in the pastor’s residence.

  1. Abduction of 13 girls?all discovered in the pastor’s resident?. I will advice the court to embark on thorough investigation to gather more fact and evidence to prove to everyone that the pastor is guilty of those charges level against him. “According to the charge sheet nkwocha did abduct the teenager without their consent”. If that is true, then what is the charity organisation the pastor has in his residence that has been in operation since 4 years that was made known by Olajuka? Or can the pastor also adduct his own cousin? Complex matter indeed that needs more investigation.

  2. they shldnt grant him bail he committed the offense. This man is not a pastor he is one those that spoil Christianity

  3. He abducted 13 girls for what purpose? Abegy, there no nice man in Lagos, unless you are willing to pay with something. One question for the randy pastor, is the charity organization registered?

  4. Good. No bail until investigation is concluded so he will not use his influence as pastor to intimidate the witnesses from making statements.

  5. My take in this matter is that the prosecutor should investigate thoroughly first and go forward with the case if they are sure there is enough evidence to secure conviction against this guy. Contrarily if the parents of those girls were the ones willingly allowed their young female to live with the self acclaimed pastor, knowing fully that his wife is not around then the major blame should be apportioned to the parents of those teenagers. You don’t allow your young teenage girls to live with a man even if that person is a prophet unless you are staying together in the church for special prayer.

    I guess the economic situation of this Country have paved way for this immoral act to occur. Some parents think that if their daughters live with the pastor, that will guarantee their three square meal which is a relief for them but do they think about the consequence of leaving their female child with a stranger? Most of these abuse are sometimes orchestrated by the ignorant parents.?

  6. Hei…? Pastor or a sex machine? 13 fresh pu**ies no be small thing o. Each girl he f**ked is 5yrs imprisonment. Then multiply that by 13.

    Then the parents of the girls should get 3yrs each.
    THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER.

    I take a stroll…
