See 72-Year-Old Prophet With 10 Wives Accused Of Impregnating, Killing & Burying Girl

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 72-year-old prophet of Celestial Church of Christ in Ipaja area, Jacob Adegboyega Farinmade for allegedly killing a female undergraduate he impregnated.

The deceased, identified simply as Bunmi allegedly died during childbirth, while the clergyman secretly buried her without informing her parents.

Bunmi was said to have been taken by her father to live with her mother following her rustication in 200 level at Babcock University in Ilisan Remo, Ogun State in 2014.

Bunmi’s mother, Derayo Omisipi thereafter took her to the embattled cleric for spiritual deliverance and protection.

Sources said the cleric who already had more than 10 wives took advantage of Bunmi’s stay in his church for the purported deliverance to lure the girl to bed and impregnated her.

It was learnt that the cleric did not allow the deceased to attend any antenatal clinic throughout the duration of her pregnancy.

Sources also said the cleric broke the news of the girl’s death to her mother after he had buried her in a shallow grave near his church premises.

The father of the deceased became curious after her mother could not offer satisfactory explanation about her whereabouts.

The disturbed father reported the matter to the police and the cleric was arrested.

The matter is being handled by the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), where the prophet is currently detained.

Confirming the incident, the spokesman of Lagos State Police Command, Mr Bala Elkanah said the suspect had been charged to court for murder.
