Indeed, the end of the world is near as the signs abound. Acts considered sacrilegious are now confidently done without any fear, the most worrisome aspect of it is the question that do agitate people’s minds that if gold get rust what then happens to silver? The temple of God that should ordinarily be reserved for Godly affairs and actions are turned into a platform where oddities are promoted and where sacrilege is committed.
The premises of a magistrate court in Akure was almost filled to the brim today as a self acclaimed man of God was brought before Magistrate Victoria Bob-Manuel , it was a scenario that left many open -mouthed in shock as the clergy man gave titillating but annoying details of his obnoxious acts.
The Magistrate court eventually sentenced the 32 year old prophet, Sunday Waleola to three years imprisonment without option of fine for sodomizing innocent male children. Waleola who heads a Cherubim and Seraphim Church Oke-Aro area of Akure, the Ondo State capital was alleged to have sodomized the male children who were between the ages of six and nine.
The court presided over by Mrs. Victoria Bob-Manuel handed down the sentence to the pastor after he was found guilty of child molestation. Officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Ondo state, acting on a tip off had caught him committing the immoral act.
The legal officer of the NSCDC Mr. Ebiriku David told the Court that the pastor was a “serial homosexual” who was in the habit of seducing male children and that the offence committed is against section 32 (i) of the Ondo State Child Rights Law 2017. The prophet, who however, pleaded guilty to the offence leveled against him, blamed the devil for the sacrilegious act.
He confessed to enticing the children with money adding that the victims were all pupils of public primary schools. “I do take them to the bush and seduce them before they return back to their classes, after which I will give them money. I believe it was the devil that led me into the evil act because I would always come back to my senses after sexually molesting the little boys’ he said.
The court thereafter ordered that the Pastor be jailed and made to serve a three years jail term at the Olokuta prison Akure without an option of fine
